From the team that brought you Dice With Buddies and Mini Golf MatchUp arrives a fun turn-based word game. Like Letterpress, the goal is to claim and steal tiles to earn points by creating words until no more tiles are left free. However, Wordly does include a couple of extras that change up the gameplay. Wild tiles are randomly selected and offered for free once per match. These additional letters provide great assistance during dire times if utilized effectively. As for the second perk, it's about opponent flexibility. Instead of challenging friends and strangers, you can choose to compete in quick matches against skilled AI-controlled characters representing great intellectuals, such as Albert Einstein. The game features cartoony 2-D graphics, an in-game chat system, daily goals and achievements, and Facebook, Twitter and With Friends network integration.
