Enrich your vocabulary with WordTwist

You have two minutes at your disposal to make a word and score as much as possible. But because the application is free, there will be times when you will be annoyed by that advertising banner. I am suggesting developers to try a different placing, as it really troubles word twist windows 8 word gamethe player. You can use the Twist button to arrange differently the letters, if you’re out of ideas. And sometimes, that really helps!

Also, the achievements board is another motivational tool to get those words flipping. You have 4 different colors, according to the difficulty, which is represented by the length of the word you’re going to create. So, if you’ll make a word out of 3 letters, you’ll fill out the green column and so on. And, of course, you will get a smaller score for doing that and a bigger one for managing to discover a longer, more difficult word. And if you’re playing in team, you can always prove that your word “makes sense” with the help of the dictionary tool, which proves to be very useful.
