Here's another word game for your Windows Phone. Don't groan too loud because this one could make you a millionaire. Well, sort of.
Spelling Millionaire challenges you to correctly spell fifteen words in a row. Features of Spelling Millionaire include:
- The option to choose between British and American dictionaries
- Definitions for every word
- One Lifeline for the spelling challenged
- Online leaderboard
The game is patterned very similar to the popular "Who wants to be a Millionaire" game show. The more correct words spelled, the higher you move on the money tote board. Get fifteen words spelled correctly and you win a million bucks.
Game play has a word displayed on the screen and your job is to decide if it is spelled correct or not. At the bottom of the screen you have your earning if you lose, how much you can walk away with, and your earnings is you get the word right. Up to you have your life line and a button to pull up the meaning of the word. I'm still trying to figure out the life line. If I had to guess, each tiny little square represents a vote one way or the other. The choice with the most squares is the recommendation.
All in all, Spelling Millionaire was a fun game to play. I do wish the game had more life lines and a help section. I did encounter an odd stability issue. In running Spelling Millionaire on a Nodo HD7S, the app continually crashed.
In running Spelling Millionaire after I updated to Mango on the HD7S, it ran like a charm. In looking at the comments on the Marketplace a few commented on stability problems but most compliment the game. No telling what was causing the issues with my HD7S running Nodo.
Hopefully, the instability is a rare occurrence. The good thing is that Spelling Millionaire is a free game so you can try it without it costing you a dime. You can download Spelling Millionaire here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.
