WordPop! Game Gets Updated

Smart Box Design has released an updated version of WordPop!, its challenging word creation game, for Palm OS devices. The newest version features audio and visual effects designed to take advantage of the high-resolution screens and audio capabilities of the latest handheld devices based on the Palm OS platform.

From the developer, Those who enjoy word games such as Boggle and Scrabble will find WordPop! a must-have part of their PDA game collection. Players are challenged to create words and use strategy skills to rack up high scores. The game requires players to take a strategic approach to assemble various combinations of words on a game board comprised of randomly placed letter tiles. The object of the game is to clear the board by creating words from the letter tiles. As each word is formed, the tiles in the word are removed and the remaining tiles fall into the vacated spaces and create new word possibilities.

WordPop! was designed for players of all ages and skill levels. The breadth of the games’ word list allows players to push the limits of their vocabularies and creates an excellent educational tool for parents and educators. WordPop! has three difficulty levels, Easy, Medium, and Hard, to accommodate both novice and advanced players. Each level also offers a distinctive experience, giving players the choice of playing a relaxing game or challenging their intellect.

Smart Box Design developed WordPop! with a host of options to enable players to keep track of their progress and help develop skills necessary for getting higher scores with each subsequent game. The game offers a “Best Words” screen, which displays the highest-scoring words created by the player and “High Score” screens to show the number of rounds accomplished and points scored. A free trial version is available as well. [BUY]

“The addition of sound effects adds a fun new dimension to WordPop!,” said Todd Sherman, president of Smart Box Design. “We’ve really listened to what our loyal customers have been requesting and our new version of WordPop! clearly demonstrates that we respond when we receive feedback from players.”

I get annoyed by game sounds really easily, and usually wind up turning them off, but this game has subtle sounds that fit well.
