What I love: If you loved Boggle, the word-finding game, as a kid, you’ll love Ruzzle. The object is to find as many words as possible in two minutes, swiping your finger across the letters (up, down, to the side, diagonally) to earn points. The longer the word, the more points you earn. Some pieces have initials on them, indicating that using those pieces in your word will give you bonus points. Similar to Scrabble, the initials include: DL=double letter score; TL=triple letter score; DW=double word score; TW= triple word score. There are tournaments and you can play against Facebook friends, Twitter followers, random opponents or your Ruzzle friends (people you’ve added).
What I would change: Would be nice to have a way to just play against yourself (other than practice mode).
