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.

Summary: The graphics aren’t the most amazing things in the world, but they are very good for DS standards. The asian-themed wallpaper are static, and all of the letter tiles look like wooden Scrabble pieces. There is no animation other than the letters flying to the top screen when you create words.
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.

It's not for everybody, but if you like to spell then here is the game for you! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.

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.
