Within the game your opponent throws random letters at you and you need to form a meaningful word from the bunch of jumbled letters. At the same time you also challenge your opponents with scrambled letters, twisted and turned to a custom difficulty level. The dual task of challenging as well as solving puzzles at the same time is what makes it fun and a fast paced game unlike the traditional puzzles games where you can have your share of time. The opponent and you get limited words to complete from scrambled letters and whoever does them all right and fastest wins the game. The rules are quite simple to start off with but a handy tutorial is definitely a must in the game which we found missing.
The game controls are simple and self explanatory, just drag the letter across and drop them to place them at the right spot. Due to being relatively new, the game lacks active players, sometimes you may need to wait about four to five minutes before a random player is assigned to you but you are sure to enjoy it more with your friends and family bragging your high scores and setting up new challenges. The quick invitation process and leaderboards helps you explore high scores from the people in your circle or other gamers around the world.
