Mishmash!: Written iPhone App Review
Like to play Scrabble and other word or vocabulary related games? Looking for something simple, and yet still very challenging? Then the Mishmash! app from developer William Gann is just the game app for you! It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and runs on iOS 4.0 or later.
When the user initially loads the Mishmash! app, they will be shown two game options: “Chaos” or “Blitz”. With the “Chaos” option, the user will need to complete each word in less than twenty seconds and it runs continuously. With the “Blitz” option, the user will need to complete as many words as they can in three minutes. The words consist of at least 5 letters, and the user will have to unscramble the letters presented on the chalkboard by tapping on each letter in sequential order to spell out a legitimate word. The user has three free skips they can use if they are stuck on a particular scrambled word. The user has the option of viewing their stats via Game Center on the main menu screen.
Appearance and Layout:
The layout of Mishmash! is setup like a school chalkboard. The main menu screen starts out with the image and then the actual game play continues the theme. The graphics are great and well done, and the game play animation along with the disappearing of completed words and appearing of scrambled words are set at an even pace. Navigation is easy, and the user should have no problem figuring out the basic gist of the game since the two game options listed on the main menu describe it all. The background sound effects pair perfectly in unison with the game play and app functions.
Overall, the value of Mishmash! is superb. Although the basic premise of the game is rather simple, to sit there and stare at unscramble ordinary words can actually be quite challenging. It is a great learning app especially for those learning English or those who want to brush up on their vocabulary skills. It is also a great brain teaser for kids and adults alike. For it only costing 99 cents is quite the deal, considering other not so beneficial game apps available on the market today cost the same or even more. This is a highly recommended app, so what are you waiting for? Get your word action on with Mishmash!!
