Wordament Gets New Platform and Update

By Rebecca Smith,
Wordament is already one of those games that you would struggle to avoid. The free-to-play title is available on Windows Phone, Windows 8, iOS and Xbox.com. Now a fifth platform has been added to the list. Wordament (Android) is available on any device that uses Android 4.0 (Ice-cream Sandwich) or above. Developer You vs. the Internet would like you to take it easy with these new players "as they are a few months behind". The title can be downloaded from here.

If that wasn't enough, Windows Phone players can finally download version 2.6, which is a Windows Phone 8 native version of the game, from the marketplace. Previously, as a Windows 7 native game, the title may not have displayed properly depending on the screen aspect ratio of your device. This has now been solved. The new version also includes a patch that should improve the connectivity to Xbox LIVE. The developer is looking for feedback on this patch to see if it really does solve all of the problems, so be sure to let them at wordament@microsoft.com if there are still issues.

All versions of Wordament have now entered the beta stage in Norwegian and Turkish. The developer has been struggling with the Norwegian language as it "is a pretty difficult language to "get right"", so they are looking for feedback if any Norwegian speakers find "invalid" words during play. They are also lacking native Turkish speakers. Any problems in either language's lexicon need to be reported to wordament@microsoft.com.



Finally, non-English languages have received some of the new potpourri puzzle types. These include High value X, X in the corners, Either/or, and Speed rounds.

The new language changes will appear automatically the next time you load the game, as no update is required.
