WordUs2 on iPod Touch

Anyone who follows me on Twitter will know that I think the twitterverse is spending too much time following Charlie Sheen’s antics and not enough time on the important matters. However, when Grammar Girl had a twitter contest on Grammar Day incorporating Charlie Sheen, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to win the WordUs2 iPhone game.

With a little bit of help from the good Doctor Seuss, I managed to win!

Green Eggs and Ham anyone?

The point of all of this is, I won, then I downloaded the game, then I played it, thought it was silly. Then gave it a second chance and now I’m hooked. I LOVE IT!

I managed to grab some screenshots of the game from my iPod, so I’ll try my best to explain the rules.

You’re given words (in this case a 5 letter word that begins with C) and you have to try to guess the word. I’m playing the Calm and Collected mode so you have unlimited attempts to guess the word.

Once you make your word and hit Enter, it lets you know whether your word is the correct word or has letters that are in the correct word.

If the tile is Orange, it means the letter is in the correct place. If the tile is Blue it means the letter does not belong to the word.

If the tile is yellow, it means that the letter is in the word, but not in the correct place.

Once you guess the word, all squares will be orange and it takes you on to the next word.

It’s addictive.

It’s fun for everyone.

It’s helpful, especially for people who like to play Words with Friends (or Scrabble).

I danced with the Angry Birds

“This is the best game ever!” my friend exclaimed as she pulled out her iPhone and started to show me how to play Angry Birds.

“That’s the best game ever?” I thought to myself, “you’re just flinging birds at pigs!”

Fast forward two months and I finally purchased the iPod Touch, one more month and I finally downloaded Angry Birds — the free version.

Then I downloaded the paid version.

Flinging birds at pigs has never been this fun! And I’m not the only one who thinks so! Angry bird is popping up all over the place! Let’s see, there is …
