It reminds me of one of the kids games at Webkinz, that I mentioned quite a bit ago. Sadly, that website has gotten pretty addictive as well. It’s another great example of very simple games (it’s geared towards kids) being challenging enough and fun to really hold your attention.
Webkinz was down this evening for a bit and I was searching for a little brain exercise and stretcher in between getting some other things done. Scrabble Blast foot the bill nicely. Regretfully, you’ve only got a few levels to play online in the trial before they encourage you to download the full-blown version, but the stages are fun as it is.
The challenge of Scrabble Blast is that you form words by linking together letters that are next to each other in line. The strategy really comes into play as you start to realize how to play a couple of moves in advance to get the letters to line-up for a high-point word a little later.
