    A perfect puzzle game. If you like Mahjong and Boggle, then this a game you will enjoy. IGN's comment about a lack of a tutorial is a joke as the game is about as simple as you can get anyone can figure it out.

    For a crossword fan, this is an ideal supplement. Good fun, seemingly endless puzzles.

    Quite addictive. However the dictionary is not as extensive as the dictionary found in other games of this genre. Words such as January and June are not valid words. Other than the dictionary size this is a great title.

  1. Usually, it's a pretty safe bet that a DS version of a Flash game isn't a good deal. However, WordJong has some new features and comes in at a great budget price.
  2. It's a very addicting puzler that rewards you for strategy as well as your vocabulary. [Dec 2007, p.157]

    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.
