Android: WordCube – Daily puzzle game

Due to the success (and small amount of addiction) of my browser-based wordcube game (see here), I decided to make a WordCube application for android.


  • Anagram / Wordsearch based puzzle
  • Small file size (~100kb) and footprint
  • Updated daily
  • Share score with twitter integration (compete with friends)
  • Saves your last attempts so you can continue at later time
  • This also means you can continue your last game offline
  • Several achievements can be unlocked (more to come, also looking for suggestions for achievements)

Find as many words as possible using letters from the grid. The words must be 4 letters or more, contain the central letter and each letter may not be used more than once. There is at least one word that uses all of the letters in the cube.

The main interface is by tapping the letters in order to construct a word, but keyboards (and on screen keyboards) are also supported.

Twitter Integration
Once you have attained all the words that you can, you can post your score to twitter and then compare with your friends to see how they did in comparison. In order to use this feature you need to have a twitter client installed, I would recommend twidroid.

The pro version is available for £1, with the money going to support the developer and the development and maintenance of this application. The pro version features all of the latest features and in the near future will support personal statistics to keep track of performance.
