(xblig)Wordzy for XBLCG – Whatzy?

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

July22 Words, Words, everywhere there’s words, in books and on game shows, it’s getting absurd, read this and that, can’t you read the words?  What’s up with word games?  Word games for fun and profit.  Everybody likes word games.  Jumble, Scrabble, Crossword puzzles, etc.  So it’s with some pleasure, okay a little pleasure, okay not really, word games aren’t my thing.  Well actually that’s not true, I like wheel of fortune.  I don’t mind doing crossword puzzles every once in a while.  In any case the next review is for the Xbox Live Community Game called Wordzy.

My thoughts on the game:  It’s just ok.  It’s essentially a guessing game, and it gives you no hints as to what the mystery word is other than filling in the first letter and giving you a bonus letter.  If you want to know more, it’s after the jump.


Buzzword – Buzz, Buzz, BUZZZZZZ!

Today’s game is a mixture of match-3 and crossword puzzle.  The game is called Buzzword by Desktop Gaming.  I only played the trial which is 60 minutes, but I felt it was good enough to get a feel for the game.  The goal of the game is to reach the next level by filling the “honey” meter.  BuzzwordSS01
