    The aim of the game is to gain points by creating words from the selection of 25 letters given to you on-screen. You can only select letters that are adjacent to the previous selection.

    Add letters to a word by clicking on the letters - then click the 'submit' button when you've made a complete word to get the points.

    Every 5 words you gain an additional 15 seconds. Good Luck!!

    The game looks great. I love boggle, and this looks like a fun twist. Here is a screenshot I took from your page, we are visual creatures. ;)[​IMG]

    Thanks for the good feedback! We are trying to see how to add levels to this game. Seems a bit more difficult to spec out what sort of levels would be attractive to people. Any ideas are welcome :)
    I am glad to see people are enjoying the game

    I love word games so installed this. I enjoyed playing it but it installed to the phone although I have apps set to install to SD if possible. At over 6 Mb it is just too big for my phone so I've had to uninstall it reluctantly. Is there any chance that it could be made to run from the SD card please?

    Thanks.. I think we have also been struggling with that. The dictionary is just taking way too much space, so we are trying to figure out an alternative. We will look towards how to set to install to SD card. Seems like the best approach. I think our install rate is around 60% right now, maybe this is part of the reason why.

    As promised - here is our progress. Our team worked hard to get this release out there and we took care of a few important issues. Here is the snippet I copied from the release notes:

    Lots of changes in this release:
    1. Instead of a database dictionary that uses up tons of your valuable internal memory, we now use a compressed dictionary that can be moved straight to your SD card - along with the game!
    2. Workflow changes with a new re-play button and back button after a game finishes.
    3. Allowing you to move entire game to SD card.
    4. Much quicker dictionary look up.
    5. New logo! Green and beautiful.

    Again, feed back is obviously much appreciated. I think this really puts this game on a good foundation. We intend to continue updating game modes to make this game more and more educational. Thanks!

    Also, I wanted to get your views on creating another version of this as a paid app without any ads. Do people prefer to get rid of the ads and pay a dollar or two ?
