New Scrabble App – Words With Friends
Zynga’s mission statement is “to connect people through games. We make social games that are free and accessible for everyone to play. Everyday millions of people interact with friends and express their unique personalities through our games.”
And Zynga’s new game, Words with Friends lives up to the mission statement. The new Scrabble application has become increasingly popular.
When Zynga first broke into the iPhone gaming scene, there weren’t any games that took full advantage of the iPhone’s connectivity, that was until they released Chess With Friends.
Chess is a complex game that requires a lot of thought for each move and considering the busy world we live in, it can be challenging to set aside enough time to play one Chess game from start to finish.
Chess With Friends solved all these problems, by allowing players to play correspondence style Chess. This form of Chess is played over a span of hours, days or even weeks. Once a player submits a move, he waits for his opponent to enter the app to make their move, and so on. And due to the always online nature of the iPhone you can make a move anytime you have a spare moment in your day.
Now take all those great features from Chess With Friends and apply it to a word game like Scrabble, then you get Zynga’s latest release Words With Friends.
Just like Scrabble, your goal is to outscore your opponent by using as many letters as possible to spell words, using rare letters and placing letters on top of premium squares to multiply your points. So there shouldn’t be any real surprises for fans of Scrabble, you’ll get the classic gameplay you’ve always enjoyed but now with added convenience of portable online play.
You’ll have the option of playing pass-n-play mode, online with a friend in your contact list or a random opponent. Words With Friends also allows players to chat with one another, which is always a cool feature to have in any multiplayer game.
Words With Friends is the best word game in the App Store today. If you’re a fan of Scrabble don’t miss out on this excellent App Store release. Participate in the world’s newest phenomenon where millions of users are constantly checking their iPhones, iPods and Androids to spell out the wittiest comeback.
