Default Scrabble-like games

Why haven't there been any scrabble games made yet for android? It seems like even the G1 would be good enough to be able to play them. It's not like it requires a lot.

WordGame is the only thing that I've played that seems any bit close to scrabble, but even so it's not very close at all.

You get 7 tiles to spell words, but you're racing against the clock to spell as many words as you can before time runs out. There's no board or opponents really.

I'm also waiting for a scrabble-like game to come to Android.

Please, please, all go to Newtoy|Kicking off a revolution in gaming with your friends on the iPhone and iPod Touch and email them asking for an Android version of "Words With Friends" so we can all play Scrabble against iPhone owners.

There actually IS a Scrabble game; an official version from EA. It's pretty good actually too. It's not in the Android Market but you can download it by going to eamobile.com in the browser.

***HOWEVER***
EA mobile has the worst customer service ever. I downloaded it several months ago and recently had to do a hard reset and had to reinstall everything. EA Mobile has no way to download previously purchased games and after 3 weeks trying to go through their customer service I've still been unable to restore it. I wouldn't buy this through them and wait until it makes it to the market or some other service like Handmark that allows you to easily redownload previously purchased apps.

Bump. Who's playing EA scrabble here?

Just picked up an Incredible. Loved playing Words with Friends on my iPod. Really hoping for something similar on my new phone. I'm not that excited to drop $10 on a scrabble game from EA, but might end up doing so if nothing else comes about.

Anyone try the EA version on their Incredible?

I have EA Scrabble on the Incredible. It works fine. It's actually a lot faster on the Inc than it was on my Eris. If you really like Scrabble, it's probably the best option for you right now.

Does it have online playing? If I download it do you think I can share the file my wife or do we each have to purchase it?

Where are you finding this. I went to eamobile and find scrabble for lots of phones but not android. I entered my phone number and it sent me a link to buy games for a BB.

What's up with this?

Then what's the point? Playing the computer? For $10 I'll pass.

I would not pay $10 - not worth it

but would be cool to play it, hand it to another person and let then play their word, and back and forth. this would be in addition to the computer option.

Doesn't appear to be by ANY chance of that happening any time soon. Have emailed the developers and they don't have any interest in Android it seems. Can't understand why Google don't help developers like this out and take out the financial risk for them to do it. Guaranteed there will be a lot of people not even looking at Android because games like Words With Friends isn't on it. I know of one person this week who didn't even consider Android when I had to tell her that she'd lose Words With Friends.

We've just released WordWise Pro for Android. Maybe it's close enough to what you're looking for.

Online random player match? If so, I'd say that's a pretty decent start. Thanks

Right now you email your friends with supported devices and invite them to download the app or play if they already have it.

We're going to be implementing a ranking system, leaderboard, and challenge system over the next few weeks.

Just a quick update, my wife and I downloaded to our new incredibles and we're both getting force closes. Sorry, but I don't think it's quite ready yet for release

Yeah, we're getting reports of problems from the HTC Desire, too. Looks like a problem with with the HTC Sense UI at this point. Sorry about that. We'll try to push out a workable update for devices running HTC Sense asap.

Looks interesting, but with it not working on the HTC Hero, I can't comment on it. I can tell you that both my wife and I will buy this instantly when it does. Please make it happen soon

I just wrote a word scramble/jumble game as a pet project and published it to the market place. Its still beta and my first app so be kind. Basically I was curious how hard it would be to create multiplayer games.

At first I built a tcpserver and client in the app and had it go out to a matching server, then the one handset would be switched to server mode, and the second would disconnect from the matching server and connect to that host. Of course this worked perfectly on wifi, but with cell connections, the cell provider's NAT prevents the connection so now I have the matching server handle the communication throughout the life cycle of an online game.

Not scrabble - but does have head to head word competition - both Bluetooth and network game play. Currently the network gameplay randomly paired against other people but i want to add the ability to enter a code so you can text that code to a friend and have it match you.

Basically you guess the scrambled word, if you find it first, you get health (up to the maximum) AND your opponent loses health. If neither guess, you both lose points. every 10 words, the maxWordLength increases by 1.

solo play has tons of configuration options.


If you like word scramble games, please give it a try and give me some feedback. I'm not exactly a master programmer nor graphics guy, like I mentioned its just a pet project.

The application is andJUMBLE! and has the following features:

* >60,000 words in supplied database
* ability to create your own word database and use it alone, or in conjunction with system database
* ability to set system words to be ignored
* option to change the # of rounds per game
* option to change the word size for the game
* option to change the time per round, and delay between rounds
* options to see hints on incorrect guesses, acceptable words(after the round is over)
* vibrate & sound notification options
* Bluetooth head to head play (rough draft - work in progress
* Network head to head play with a matching server (works better than bluetooth at the moment). Game toggles host each round so neither player has unfair advantage due to network (cellular) latency
* Word lookup by letters contained (if you want to reverse solve a jumbled word

and Its FREE!! (has a few ads - i'm just playing with admob at the same time)

Please check it out and give me some feedback - tested with N1 and Motorola Droid. Just search for andJumble, or just jumble.

Thanks!!

Have got WordWise up and running on my HTC Desire and am testing it out now. Anyone else that has it, please feel free to start up a game with me at: brykins@gmail.com


UPDATE: Don't send me any invites. The app isn't working yet on the HTC Desire but the developer is working on it.

Any plans to get it out to devices with smaller screens? My son has a Pulse and there are a LOAD of Heros, etc, out there with smaller screens.

Can't even find the Wordwise game in the market, and even I could, I don't think my device is supported yet (Motorola Cliq XT).

That could be why you can't find it in the Market. Far as I know, the Market will only show apps that will work on your device, your OS, in your language in your country.

Anyone know if wordwise works on the incredible yet? I really wish i knew how to program - i would have made a scrabble game and then quit school and lived on my luxurious yacht with the small fortune i could be making same goes for online chess. These are the only two factors that make me still miss my ipod. It's a bummer that there still isn't a strong offering yet

Cool

Just downloaded WORDwise Pro, a scrabble clone and adequate replacement for Words with friends, not as polished, but finally something close. You can also play with other people over internet. Worth every penny of the 99 cents.

Installed on my and my wife's droid incredible and is working fine on both phones, had only one force close, but am playing 5 different games at once. Great for a starting app, and i am sure will only get better with updates

You're right. I went to go play with a Motorola Droid at a local Verizon store yesterday and WordWise was available in the market.

I wish this game saved stats, because I just got my highest scoring word: Traveled on two different 3 word square tiles, for 176 points. Epic!

Stats and game history, so we can re-challenge people easily on ended games. Not at all easy to remember a Gmail address to send a new challenge to.

So I guess this doesn't work for the Hero? Is the Hero not a 2.0 phone? What is up with that??

It definitely works on the Hero, as I play it on that. I think there is a problem with their last update.

Someone should make a list of the best multiplayer board game replacements for android...

1. Scrabble - the games listed in this thread
2. Yahtzee - Yz
3. Connect 4
4. Chess
5. Battle Ship
etc.

Right?

WordWise is great, worth every penny of the 99 cents, I've recommended it to a bunch of my friends already.

I have to agree with this comment though. Maybe a stored "friends" list so you can easily send an invite to people you play with all the time, and the ability to add someone to that list after a game is done.
Stats would be neat too

(Also, some guy just dropped the word "betatron" (82 pts) on me on his first turn of the game. No way he's using a scrabble helper app, right? :P)

@mbennum - no getting away from the Scrabble helper. I use Facebook Scrabble as well and it's quite obvious that lots of people use all sorts of tools to help them.

That sucks. I play honestly, what's the fun if you have to cheat?

So I've been playing Wordwise Pro the last day or so on my Incredible. It's working now which is cool.

One issue though: I'm used to Words With Friends where if someone enters an invalid word, it lets you know immediately. It seems like Wordwise Pro doesn't actually check the words. My opponent just played (for example) "KET," which I'm pretty sure is not a real word. Is there any way to challenge that? Has anyone else had issues with opponents playing invalid words?

The game won't let you play an invalid word. In fact, if you try to play two in a row on the same turn, you lose your turn.

Surely Ket is a proper noun. I'm not accepting that new bloody rule they've brought in.

I do wish the great "Words with Friends" iPhone game was available on Android phones, spent many an hour playing that.
