Scrabble Meets Mahjong: FIGHT

ablegamers.com
3 July 2010
  • Excerpt: WordJong, quite simply put, is mahjong meets Scrabble. You are given tiles arranged in various patterns and piles then you have to lift them away by creating words. For example, if you picked up the tiles to spell "Gamers," those tiles would be removed from the pile. You can't grab tiles that are boxed in or buried by other tiles, so there's some challenge involved in making words out of what you're given to work with.

WordJong Review

GameSpot
18 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Considering that you can play WordJong for free at various Web sites, or for just a few bucks on your cell phone, the Nintendo DS rendition of it had better offer something beyond portability to justify the $20 price tag. The good news is, it does. In addition to packaging two of the most popular variations of this addictive brain teaser together on a single cartridge, Destineer and Magellan Interactive have also included a battle mode that lets you test your word-making...
  • Pros: Scrabble-style mahjong is pleasantly addictive, Three different play modes, including an online battle mode, Touch-screen controls are intuitive and responsive
  • Cons: Graphics and audio are extremely plain, No one is ever online to play

WordJong review (DS)

  • Excerpt: The change actually makes for a much more interesting experience, since your mind is now put to the test a bit more. There often will be a few options available, so your job is to figure out which will do the most to help your score. For example, why settle for 'cede' if the letters for 'succeed' happen to be available?

  • Summary: WordJong is a modest game, a simple puzzle game that does only one thing ... but does it very well. There's a lot to love in Destineer's newest portable puzzle game, including a fantastic multiplayer mode and daily puzzles. It's not for everybody, but if you like to spell then here is the game for you! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.

  • Excerpt: As I have mentioned before , I have a long commute to work. I live in Philadelphia, but work in the burbs. This means that I spend an hour and a half on the train in each direction. Ultimately, I'm left with a lot of free time. To help pass the time, I have a newspaper subscription, my podcasts, and my DS.  And since purchasing my little hand-held, I have had a few games that have kept me riveted.
