  1. If you've ever enjoyed a puzzle game, you'll dig it, and when it makes you smarter, just consider that a nice bonus.
  2. It's a very addicting puzler that rewards you for strategy as well as your vocabulary. [Dec 2007, p.157]
  3. WordJong is a modest game, a simple puzzle game that does only one thing ... but does it very well.
  4. There are no cheesy touch-screen mini-games here either; just solid gameplay. It is the perfect pick-up-and-play title for any book worms this Holiday.
  5. Overall, WordJong is a pretty addictive game. And even though it is a budget title, there is plenty here to keep players word-smithing for a long time.
  6. 75
    The game's got a very addictive nature, and there's a good amount of different modes (including two player battle mode) to keep things interesting. It's just a bit of a bummer that the programmers don't wean certain players (i.e. the older casual crowd) into its gameplay mechanics with a tutorial mode.
  7. For those who haven't taken the New York Times Crossword puzzle out of their handheld in six months.
