iOS review: iWordJuggle by Roland Leth

iWordJuggle is a game to play in short bursts, like many iOS games. The idea is that you choose three words from a randomly selected list, then make words from the letters. You can use the same letter more than once and you are awarded a score based upon the number of letters used and the points each letter is worth. The letters have point values in a similar manner to scrabble.

The games controls are simply selecting letters and clicking check. This works fine and I have yet to miss-click. The only minor annoyance is the lack of a backspace, so if you make a spelling error you must click check and start the word over.

The graphics are simple, and for a game where the important thing is for it to be clear and easy to read this works well, and the tiled style of the letters looks good.

There is no music but the clicking sounds are simple and do not become annoying, so they do their job well.

This game could last quite a long time, and when playing I discovered some words I was not aware of, so it can improve vocabulary and is quite a nice, simple, little time-killer.

Graphics: 75%
Sound: 75%
Control : 80%
Longevity: 90%
Fun: 70%
