A good time for the word nerds

Word­smiths, this is your game. Sim­i­lar to Bog­gle, Ruz­zle gives two users the same grid of let­ters and chal­lenges them to find words hid­den in ad­ja­cent let­ters. Play­ers con­nect words by slid­ing their fin­gers along the grid ver­ti­cally, hor­i­zon­tally or di­ag­o­nally. You can ac­cu­mu­late points by find­ing more words, find­ing longer words or us­ing tiles with spe­cial val­ues. The app has a some­what lim­ited vo­cab­u­lary, how­ever, so don’t ex­pect to gain points for words that are too ob­scure.

Users can choose to play with friends or with strangers — there is also a chat func­tion so you can con­grat­u­late each other on a game well-played. An­droid and iPhone users can play against each other, as well, ex­pand­ing your play­ing field con­sid­er­ably. Free, for iOS and An­droid de­vices.
