Note: Dropwords 2 is a rewrite of my old Dropwords game. It includes the same play style and mode modes, but has some technical improvements, including running more smoothly on modern devices, using much less battery power, and more graceful handling of different screen sizes!
Dropwords 2 is word-finding puzzle that combines some elements of Scrabble and Boggle. Valid words boost your score and the dwindling timer; used letters disappear and new ones drop from above.
The game includes six game modes: Normal, Hard, Lightning, Blocker, Relax and Untimed. Whether you just want to relax, or are looking for something challenging, there's a game mode that will suit you.
The game offers three dictionaries:
1. Scrabble: contains all the 2-to-8-letter words from the SOWPODS list of Scrabble competition words. This amounts to 114575 words, including both US and UK spellings. Because this is a Scrabble dictionary, proper nouns like "June" or "Rome" are not included. Plurals are included.
2. Webster's: based on the Webster's New International Dictionary, 2nd Edition, this contains 120127 2-to-9-letter words. Includes some proper nouns, but not plurals or Scrabble-specific words (such as my own favourite, "QI"!).
3. Both! The combination of the Scrabble and Webster's dictionaries; this is the dictionary used by default.
You can switch dictionary via the game's Options dialog.
1. More visual themes.
2. "Bomb drop" game mode.
