It looks like you have a new excuse to get kicked off a plane, as Zynga has released its latest iOS word games, Scramble With Friends.
In order to play, you’ll spell words by dragging your finger over letter tiles in a variety of directions, find as many words as you can before the time runs out and score more points than your opponent. There are three rounds per game and each round last two minutes. There are also power-ups which can help you find words or stop the clock and, of course, you can always use in-app purchases to buy tokens for more power-ups.
“Scramble With Friends takes one of Zynga’s earliest games and sprinkles the magic of ‘With Friends’ games to enhance play and bring players a raucously fun mobile social experience,” said David Ko, chief mobile officer for Zynga, in a prepared statement. “Our ‘With Friends’ franchise brings new twists to classic favorites and Scramble With Friends is no different. We’re dedicated to innovating in mobile social games and bringing more play into everyone’s day wherever and whenever they want.”
Now that Zynga is a public company, look for it to continue to push into the mobile space with more games. You can download the ad-free version of Zynga’s Scramble With Friends for $2.99 here (iTunes link) and there’s also a free version in the App Store with ads.
