Dropwords is a word-finding puzzle, played against the clock.

Dropwords is word-finding puzzle that combines some elements of Scrabble and Boggle. Valid words boost your score and the dwindling timer; used letters disappear and new ones drop from above.

The game includes six game modes: Normal, Hard, Lightning, Blocker, Relax and Untimed. Whether you just want to relax, or are looking for something challenging, there's a game mode that will suit you.

The game offers three dictionaries:
1. Scrabble: contains all the 2-to-8-letter words from the SOWPODS list of Scrabble competition words. This amounts to 114575 words, including both US and UK spellings. Because this is a Scrabble dictionary, proper nouns like "June" or "Rome" are not included. Plurals are included.
2. Webster's: based on the Webster's New International Dictionary, 2nd Edition, this contains 87416 2-to-8-letter words. Includes some proper nouns, but not plurals or Scrabble-specific words (such as my own favourite, "QI"!). I have added certain words that seemed to be missing in error: BOX, HAS, KID, NEAR.
3. Both! The combination of the Scrabble and Webster's dictionaries, comprising 153136 words. This is the dictionary used by default.

You can switch dictionary via the game's Options dialog.

Includes optional access to PapayaMobile's social network, global leaderboards, and achievements!

Have fun!

* Note to Samsung Galaxy S2 owners: there is a known fault with this dual-core phone where sound playback can cause crashes and/or freezes. Please ensure the game's "Mute sound" option is ticked (in the Options dialog, accessible from the highscores screen). *

Coming soon:
1. Make the Save Game/Abandon Current Game sequence slicker by allowing the player to just press "Back" to auto-save and drop back to the highscores screen.
2. Get the game to auto-save when it gets backgrounded (by the player switching tasks/taking a call).
3. More themes.
4. "Undo" option.
5. "Bomb Drop" game mode.

Not Worthy!

Trace pattern isn't exactly accurate, can't spell more than a four letter word because it messes up the trace pattern after the fourth letter. "Mired" becomes "Mredi". Most words aren't accepted such as "ill" or "inn", or even "leery". But other "words" are accepted such as "zef" or "limpt" which have no definitions. Put down the crack pipe and pick up a dictionary, preferably English.

Excellent time killer!!

It also helps with learning spelling!! Some words spelled correctly are not accepted, but that does not happen that often. The undo button is a good idea. Keep up the great work and also keeping it free!!

Slow since update

Used to be my favourite game, but an update a few months ago ruined it, now it is slow and laggy and almost unplayable. I wish I could get the old version
