Word Scramble 2

Boggle-clone lovers rejoice! Word Scramble 2 is here to satisfy all of your word searching needs! From Zynga, the social gaming giants responsible for Farmville and Mafia Wars, Word Scramble 2 aims to do what pretty much every other Zynga title does, which is make a close copy of a different game and bring it cheaply to the hordes of slavering masses.

Regardless of how you feel about Zynga as a company, I will say this, they’re pretty good at what they do, and Word Scramble 2 is no exception. It plays just like Boggle; you have a random grid of letters, and you have to make words out of them. All the letters have to be connected in a line, but you can go up, down, left, right, or diagonal. As far as I can tell, this version is exactly the same as the first, but they’ve added trophies and sharpened up a few of the design elements. You can still play on Facebook, in addition to solo mode and a play and pass mode for when you have friends actually in the room with you.

The interface is fairly intuitive and easy to use, but the game is not without bugs, and it does crash on occasion. This might bother me more, but the game is free, so, really, you get what you pay for.

I’m not wild about the trophies, since they don’t really add anything, and most of them don’t really feel like worthwhile achievements, but if you’re the type who loves to compare progress with your friends on Facebook, they’re there for you. I’m also not a big fan of their word bank, since it encourages people to just enter in anything that vaguely looks like it could be English. A ton of the words the game considers valid would be considered seriously suspect by even the most liberal of linguists, but it’s a fairly minor gripe.

The design is fairly generic, and you can play to unlock “Scramble points” to change the background if you want, but it’s a really trivial feature. The sound effects are decent, but like everything else in the game, they can be buggy from time to time.

Word Scramble 2 isn’t at all original or especially noteworthy, but it’s uncomplicated fun, and it’s totally free.

3 Comments to “Word Scramble 2”

  1. this game is so awsome!!!!!!! Its so addictive and easy, possible side effects… Looking for words that are not sideways or diagnol on word searches!

  2. i would like to know what happened to the untimed version. 3 minutes is not long enough to gather a lot of words.

  3. Nice review. But your site is the only one I know of where double-tapping or pinch-zooming does NOT work! Even entering this comment required holding the iPad up to my face to see the letters and the usual magnifying glass did not make the text big enough to read! Please fix!
