Anag7ams, a word puzzle game by Persephonae Labs, is now available over at the Zune Marketplace for Windows Phone 7. While the game title may have a unique spelling, you'll find the game itself having a bit of familiarity.
It's a scrabble game of sorts where you are given six letters and you must find all the hidden words those letters spell. Find all the 3,4,5,and 6 letter words before the clock runs out and you'll move on to the next level. Ultimately, your goal is to reach the Challenge Round where you have a single, six letter word to unscramble.
Anag7ams has four gaming levels ranging from easy to expert and a practice/just for fun mode that allows you to practice your skills without facing a clock. The game has over 10,000 words to unscramble so it will take some time before Anag7ams gets stale.
While the game's premise isn't all that unique, it by no means takes away from the addictive quality the game possesses. With each defeat, when you see the words you missed, you feel compelled to try once again. Persephonae Labs made game play simple requiring only to tap the letters you want to fill in the squares to create the words. With each correct word, the word is revealed revealed on the master list of words for that particular letter group.
I liked the game and found it to be entertaining, challenging and a fun way to pass the time with. Anag7ams isn't graphically stunning but neither is the game of Scrabble. I would have liked to have seen a little more flair but the the game play and challenge makes up for that weakness.
If you like word puzzle games, Anag7ams (link will open your Zune browser) is worth looking into. It's available for $.99 over at the Marketplace with a trial version available to let you try before you buy.
