I’ve long been a fan of the thousands of different iPhone apps available for free and for purchase. Naturally, I have a soft spot for the free games, as they’re easy to download and can simply be erased if I don’t like one. I’ve been playing iPhone games for over a year, ever since I bought the phone. I’ve gone through my phases and love affairs with so many of them, but when all is said and done, there’s one that I like more than any other.
Scramble, made by Zynga, is the most addicting iPhone app game that I’ve ever played. Sure, I’m a sucker for puzzle style games to begin with, so this plays into my personal tastes. Still, I’m not the only person saying that Scramble is the best iPhone game out there. There are a few reasons I feel this way, and here they are.
First of all, I love the ease with which you can drag the letters to form words. This is great.
Secondly, I love the thrill of going against a timer. I’m also able to enjoy the versus mode with my girlfriend, as we can compete against each other to see who scores higher (I usually win, but don’t tell her I told you that!).
Third, the online play is spectacular. Instantly upon loading the game, you can go up against at least 90 other people, all of whom have the same exact board as you. This is great to see how you stack up with others.
