Word Drop Android game will keep you entertained

by Tim McLain

Ben Garrett's free Word Drop game combines a little bit of Boggle, a dash of Scrabble and a touch of Bejeweled for good measure. It all adds up to a time-killer game that will challenge you to find words to clear each puzzle, with fresh letters dropping down from above.

When you start the game, a wall of faux wood blocks will rain down, filling your screen. It's now your job to find words hidden amid the chaos. Use any gesture (left to right, up to down, even zig-zags) to connect the letters together into words. Alternately, you can click each letter in turn to link them together into a word.

Correct combinations will result in the blocks being cleared, and new letters will rain down to fill their place. Guess wrong, and you'll simply be told you're wrong. (So there!)

Along the way, you might want to shuffle the letters on your screen, or discard all of them for a fresh set. All the while, a timer is running. The longer the words you create and the faster you clear them, the more bonuses will be awarded to both your score and the remaining time.

And when you select a valid four-letter word, a combo multiplier letter block will drop to fill the void it leaves. Using the combo letter gives a boost to your score and time bonus.

With game modes spanning normal to hard, lightning to hard and blocker to relax and untimed, there's never a dull moment to be had when you launch Word Drop!
