AndroidTapp.com Android Game Review:
WordUp! Android Game brings the fun and excitement of the classic Boggle word game to G1 or Android powered phone users. The game is played using a grid of lettered dice, in which players attempt to find words in sequences of adjacent letters. Playable in the traditional 4×4 letter grid or 5×5, rush to get as many words/points as you can against the clock.
Gripe Alert: When playing WordUp! you have to trace the cubes carefully as to not accidentally include the wrong letter. We would suggest the developers add tapp and/or trace options in spelling words as the trace is not as responsive. One workaround we found was; when tracing… try to slightly hold on a letter then quickly slide to the adjacent letter (Rinse and Repeat). Otherwise you would have to trace slowly which could affect your time.
Also a nice feature enhancement would be to save your high score and/or see how you score against other Android users.
