Scrabble for Mac

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Apr 10, 2013

Locating fun games can be a challenge for those who are not hardcore gamers. Scrabble for Mac gives users the ability to play the classic game on their computer, but the lack of an online multi-player option is a drawback.

Scrabble for Mac comes as a free trial version with a 60-minute usage restriction. Unlocking the full program requires a payment of $9.99. The program's installation required a separate download and setup of a proprietary game store. Once that was activated, the trial version of the game downloaded quickly. After a brief title and credit sequence, the game loaded to a well-designed main menu. While there were no specific instructions for the menu, it was easy to find buttons for starting games, as well as other features like the options menu. While the game supported multiple players on the same computer, it would have been a welcome feature to allow games against others over the Internet. The single-player game had an easy-to-use menu, making it a snap to play for even inexperienced computer users. Tutorials were also available for new game players and to help refine the existing player's strategy. The program's operation was flawless without any bugs or other programming errors.

While easy and lacking Internet multi-player functionality, Scrabble for Mac is a good option for those who want to pass the time with the classic board game.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Scrabble for Mac 1.0.
