Word Cracker: Written iPhone App Review
Word puzzle apps are incredibly popular on the iOS. I have seen loads of such puzzles here at TheiPhoneAppReview. Every once in a while, a really solid world puzzle app games out. Such is the case of Word Cracker from EOZ Games.
Word Cracker has the player solving different word puzzles by adding vowels into the blanks in a series of consonants. Rack up more points by solving the most words correctly in the allotted time, and then take your game to the multiplayer realm. Game Center compatible, Word Cracker offers a host of game options keeping it addicting for a long time to come.
Helping maintain the fast pace and game challenge is the various timed modes found in Solo Play (1, 3 or 5 minutes). If you prefer to solve without the time pressure, try Unlimited time mode. Head-to-Head requires you to choose from 1, 3, or 5, as Unlimited is not an option. Game modes include Easy, Hard and Random (mix of the previous two). Want a little help along the way? You can use the Show Spaces Mode to view the lines where vowels need be placed (V_W_LS mode). There’s also a Hint option, along with options for sound and music adjustments. The scoring system helps keep Word Cracker entertaining, with base points (30 for easy, 60 for hard and 10 for each additional vowel after the first vowel). Users will get less points if they use the vowel spacing hints. Further bonus points and penalty points are possible throughout Word Cracker.
Once ingame, Word Cracker handles incredibly well, with vowels moving smoothly and overall game play progressing without any flaws. Tap Submit to check out your solved word and move onto the next one, watching your score build up at the corner of the screen.
Appearance and Layout:
I have to simple rave about the graphical design of Word Cracker. The developers have a great track record producing high-quality apps with excellent graphics and Word Cracker is no exception. With cheerful, blue star background, rewarding sound effects and a fantastic layout, Word Cracker is a treat on the senses. Even on non-retina screen devices the graphics appear sharp and really standout.
At $1.99, Word Cracker is a little higher than most other apps. However, the addictive game play, excellent graphics and attractive multiplayer options help make up for this. Word Cracker handles excellently on the iOS and only takes up a tiny amount of space (13mb or so), all the more reason to check out this app. Fans of word puzzles will love Word Cracker, as will other iOS gamer fans.
Word Cracker iPhone app requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review. The iPhone app reviews rating:
