Fresh Android Games for Dec. 22: WordTwist Pro, Miss Jump

by Caitlin M. Foyt

Today's batch of Fresh Android games features a digital version of an old family word dice game and the feminine alter ego of popular Free Running.

WordTwist Pro (Android) ~$2.93

Word Twist Pro is a fast paced, Boggle-like action word game. In this game, try to pick out the hidden words in the scrambled grid of letters. Words must be at least three letters long and may include derived versions of this word separately. However, players may not use the same letter cube more than once per word. Sounds like it’s about time to whip out the old Scrabble dictionary and see just how many different words you can make. This full version includes two different game modes, "Unlimited Time" and "Time Pressure" and it does not include ads. A lite version of the app is available in the marketplace for users to try before deciding whether or not to commit to the full version of the game.

Miss Jump (Android) FREE

What Ms. Pacman is to Pacman, Miss Jump is to the game Free Running. In this running game, you must use the game’s tap controls to slide under obstacles, jump over hurdles and sprint in the direction of the right side of the screen. Like how all running games seem to work, the object of this game is to stay moving and avoid getting killed. The further you run, the higher your score. The graphics in this game, resemble a stick figure in pink.
