Free Games on Kindle! Every Word and Shuffled Row

Well, we've all wondered (ok, at least I have) where the apps are, once Amazon released a developer's kit. It appears that two of them are now in the Kindle store and both are (currently free) games! The pictures show them being played on the newest Kindle, but I don't see any mention of which Kindle is required in the descriptions .... but, you can only purchase and download this title if you have a 2nd or 3rd generation Kindle or DX, it appears. Also, pick the kindle you send it to carefully. Unlike any books I've purchased, these can only be sent via whispernet once, it seems. After that, you'll have to transfer via USB cable to any of your other Kindle devices.

Every Word

If you like word scrambles then Every Word is the game for you. Test your vocabulary as you try to find as many words from the scrambled letters in this fun and fast-paced word game.

Here's how it works. You are given six or seven scrambled letters with the goal of finding as many words as you can. You score points by filling out the words in each empty spot on the board using only the letters that appear at the top of the game board. Keep at it until time runs out or until you fill up the board. The more words you make, the higher your score!

Your score is comprised of two components: first make a lot of words, second try to make the longest word possible in each scramble. The best way to increase your score is to do both, but it's a huge bonus to find the longest word possible. Why? Because when you do, you earn the right to play a completely new level with a brand new set of letters. As long as you keep finding the longest word, you can move on to a new level with a new jumble of letters and push your score higher and higher.


Shuffled Row


Can you keep up with Shuffled Row? See how many words you can make from 60 lettered tiles.

The tiles are added to your row one at a time so you'll constantly be working with a new set of letters. After you submit a word, the letters you used will be removed and new ones will be added. Increase your score by using less common letters. Create longer words and increase your score even more.

If you don't use the letters fast enough, they'll disappear and new ones will take their place, so you'll have to decide if you want to play it safe and use short words or try to wait for more letters to form longer words.

Test your vocabulary and how well you can think on your feet with Shuffled Row - try it today!
