Word Shuffle has just received an update with some great new features!

Everybody needs friends, so we’ve made them a little bit closer. The game now gives you the option to add people you’ve played with to a friends list so you can play again at any time! Also about those ads. Nobody likes them, right? Well, now you can remove them. Along with that comes a long list of visual and performance improvements, better game notifications, and bug fixes.

What are people saying about Word Shuffle? Just look at some of these Google Play comments:

“Amazing. This game could have never been better! I recommend it for all Android users! “

“Exciting! Once the board is set, I instantly feel jazzed to get words.”

“Great!  If you love word games like [WordHero], or Scramble with Friends, this game will hook you! It's super fast (you only get ONE minute), and very addictive.”

About Word Shuffle:

Sure, you’ve played word games before. And sure, you’ve played them with friends. But not like this. Indie developer David Goemans has re-imagined a classic. First, he brought you a 3D bomb-clearing game, and now a word game with explosive combos, beautiful 3D graphics, a leaderboard and stars. Don’t forget the stars!!

Playing on a 5x5 grid, you need to find all the words you can in 60 seconds. Points are awarded for the length of the words and the current combo. Combo timers count down, just to add that extra pressure. And if you’re rocking those words, there’s a leaderboard for the best scores. With 3 dictionaries to choose from - English, Dutch and German - it even helps international diplomacy!

So go ahead and try it now. It’s free! And it has stars!!
