Wordfeud, developed by Bertheussen IT, is a cross-platform multiplayer puzzle game. Come up with bigger and better words, challenge friends or random opponents, and play up to 30 separate games simultaneously.
It is pretty much like scrabble for your iPhone and Android. It’s played on a 15×15 board with virtual tiles offering double or triple letter scores on the individual letters or the whole word if you cover them up. Just like the old board game you play one word from your seven letter tiles, refill your rack with letters from a tile pool as you use them and then it’s your opponent’s turn. When the pool is empty and there are no tiles for making words, the highest score wins.
What the phone version adds to your Scrabble-like experience is that you can invite friends from your contact list and challenge them from anywhere or you can choose to play against a random stranger. You can also play at your own pace (i.e. under the desk at work when nothing is happening, and then put it aside when there’s work to be done).
You can also play in a variety of other languages such as French, Spanish, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian and Danish.
