Cross platform word game Ruzzle gets bumped with Notifications and stats for Windows Phone

Ruzzle, the popular word game akin to Boggle but with the ability to play with friends across iOS and Android, has managed to get a decent update today. Version 1.1 is now live in the Store and brings Toast Notifications and user stats for your game history.

Boasting over 35 million players, the game was first launched on iOS back in March 2012, later going to Android and finally landing on Windows Phone 7.x and 8 devices just over two weeks ago. Much like Wordament, the game involves users trying to find words in a grid of letters, scoring higher points for larger, more complicated ones.

The app goes for $2.99 with no free trial, which means even we haven’t bought the game. A free version is reportedly on the way though, so you casual players won’t have to fork over your coffee money if you just want to dabble.

Currently, the game ranks in at 4.5 stars (out of 5) from 703 users, which is quite high for such a game--taking the risk to buy it seems like a valid gamble, if it’s something you think you’d play a lot.

Pick up Ruzzle for all Windows Phones, including 512MB devices, here in the Store. No trial.
