TechBit: Ruzzle lets users connect letters and connect with each other

A good time for the word nerds

Wordsmiths, this is your game. Similar to Boggle, Ruzzle gives two users the same grid of letters and challenges them to find words hidden in adjacent letters. Players connect words by sliding their fingers along the grid vertically, horizontally or diagonally. You can accumulate points by finding more words, finding longer words or using tiles with special values. The app has a somewhat limited vocabulary, however, so don’t expect to gain points for words that are too obscure.

Users can choose to play with friends or with strangers — there is also a chat function so you can congratulate each other on a game well-played. Android and iPhone users can play against each other, as well, expanding your playing field considerably. Free, for iOS and Android devices.
