Developed by Fuzzy Bug Interactive

After over 25 million plays in coin-op form, the addictive word game, Word Soup, comes to iOS, Android and Blackberry this month.

How do you play?

A strategic word creation game - clear the grid of scrambled letters by finding the longest words you can. Blocks disappear and fall down as you create words. Tactical play and clearing the grid will earn you big points and see you crowned king of the Soupers. 

About Word Soup

Originally launched in 2003, Word Soup started life as a coin-op game in pubs and bars across the UK. It quickly became one of the most popular games, eventually installed in 30,000 pubs and boasting over 25 million plays.

After launching on PC in 2004, the game was then selected by Microsoft in 2009 as a launch title for their Xbox 360 Indie Games initiative. It went on to seize the top spot in the launch week.
