Piece Together Words

For many people, word games are their game of choice, as there is just something so addictive and challenging about them. The FastWord app is one where you'll be playing against other people in a fast-paced challenge. You want to put together as many words as you can before the letters disappear. Now you can take your time on the longer words if you like because they will be worth more points, but keep in mind the clock is ticking. The game board is actually a grid filled with random letters. You can use the letters in any order you want but you need to use them quickly because they actually disappear.

The game is free to play but there is a premium upgrade available for $0.99. This upgrade provide you with a bigger playing grid, you can have as many active games on the go as you want, and players have more detailed stats available. Because this is a new release there are no updates as of yet. It does however have a customer rating of 4.5 out of five stars and players seem completely hooked on it.

The Gaming Experience

FastWord is a very easy game to learn, the rules are simple and clear, the game controls are user-friendly, and you'll pretty much have the hang of it after the first round. Each match is made up of two rounds and each of the players will get a chance to starting and finishing a round. Each time you use a letter it disappears off the grid and the same happens on your opponent's turn when he/she uses a letter. This can really mess with your strategy so this is when thinking fast helps.
