Yea I was editing my post to include that I couldn't tell if it was sarcasm or not but I went through a tunnel and lost signal. It read more like a teenage girl from California, not a guy from Scotland

Microsoft made an app supported by iAds. Interesting.

Anyway, I like Boggle, achievements, and free games. Hooray!

I like it.

I don't get how these new games don't support the iPhone 5 screen.

Awesome news, I played this game all the time when I had a Windows Phone. It's addicting.

Love my Xbox achievements, hope more games do this in the future. Love the Xbox Smartglass app, it has never crashed my iPad. I'd much rather have Xbox Live support on iOS games instead of Gamecenter.

Nice try Microsoft...

I still won't sign up to the rip off known as Xbox live. I'll stick with my far superior PS3 and its exclusives, thanks.

So, Microsoft has released a Microsoft version of Game Center? As if Game Center wasn't bad enough...

Not a fan of these types of games but good for MS for some cross platform integration.
It's not that it's not Apple. It's that it's Microsoft of all things.

The XBOX and the 360 took over a large part of the gaming console market only to be pieces of garbage that break for no reason but have very many good games. The PlayStations, on the other hand, were more reliable (not as good as Nintendo) but had terrible controllers and didn't have Halo. If there was no XBOX, maybe some other company would have something to compete with the PlayStation. But that's a weak point. I wish Nintendo just stayed with traditional controllers instead of pushing motion gaming gimmicks and also made their systems powerful enough to do the job of an XBOX or 360.

Window 8? I think there's a typo.

Cool game. Hate the ADs though. Don't like apps that have ads.

They show common words, but you're finding obscure ones..

This is pretty addictive. Bravo MS for bringing this to iOS.

I've been playing Wurdle on my iPod since 2008 and the screen is exactly the same, rules are exactly the same, swipe words with a time limit, and you can play others. Although your breathless review does sound a bit like someone with a dog in the fight for this app. Maybe?

Fine then I'll revise my quote.

"Xbox live is a complete rip off and I will never opt in for it even if it does come to the iphone"

Happy?

There should be a link to create a Xbox live account on the login screen. I am to lazy to google search for it.

You pay for P2P game hosting... Meaning you and others are hosting it, not Microsoft. Big ripoff.

Superior except that there's no Halo, and the controller is bad
N64 and GameCube are better than both anyway.

Only real difference from Boggle is this game assigns points to each letter, Scrabble-style. In Boggle you get a fixed amount of points depending on word length only, regardless of the letters used. I always preferred Big Boggle (5x5 grid).

Hmm since PS3 came out, I had to replace it 4 times due to various faults. Xbox I only replaced once and that's cos I wanted to swap my original release one for the newer small one...

Been playing this all day. It's pretty fun. Except for the fact that it's plainly obvious that a lot of people are cheating.
