Wordament® is a unique kind of word game—a word tournament—where you are competing with the whole internet to be the best word searcher in every game. Every player is competing on the same board, in real-time, to get the highest score. Will you be the Wordament champion? Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer! Tap names in the results list to add them to your personal list of Frenemies™, which is shown at the end of every game. Your Xbox LIVE friends will be automatically added! Wordament features unique, highly playable games. Every board is guaranteed to have over 100 possible words, and every tile is playable. Our dictionary is tuned to help you find the most common words you missed. We also have themed games, like Digrams, where we introduce a simple, but fun secondary goal of using a two-letter tile in as many words as possible. User interface available in English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch and Swedish. Game boards remain in English. Watch our blog for details on new languages coming soon. How you play and how you win is up to you!
If I recall correctly, you will also have to use your Live ID, instead of the screen name you use in the non-XBox Live version.
I’ve downloaded and replaced the non-xbox live version. I didn’t think it would be anything except achievements but to the devs and Microsoft’s credit they have added tons of features that adds so much more enjoyment to what was already an awesome game.
They show in bold the percentage of words you discovered and also the percentage of players you beat in the round. I like the music playing and even the sounds and music that plays to let you know the time is almost up.
Wordament just got even more awesome!
Well, I didn’t see your reply, but I just discovered it will replace the old one. Nice work by the devs! I wish Doodle God/Devil had done that.
I Love the updates! You’re right: the music is nice, especially the countdown. I think it’s even brighter or easier to see, too. Very much worth it. Nicely done.
