Can't decide, which is the better game?
They are... opposites.
Do you like slow, relaxed gameplay? Or fast, frenetic gameplay?
Exactly! Answer the question above and you have your answer. I have both, but I am an addict!
Honestly, they cater to different interests so my question to you is-- do you want a fast-paced, spontaneous experience like Boggle or a slower, more contemplative experience like Scrabble? WordFu is build around coming up with as many words as you can in a short amount of time whereas WordJong is built around specific, daily puzzles that need to be solved (though there is usually more than one solution)
You can't go wrong with either. Presentation and replay value are excellent in both titles, but you may get longer-term enjoyment out of WordJong
have both games, and dig them both. I prefer the pace of wordjong a bit more. wordfu can be stressful sometimes!
Plus, the wordjong daily system is better for comparing scores with friends. Its never quite even ground with wordfu. both games really need online leaderboards tho...
Stay tuned for our next update! We'll be loosening the timer up as on option and adding a way to compete with your friends on an even ground
WordFu -- I like the quicker pace myself.
Any chance a lite version of WordFu will be coming out? Because I've been looking at it for awhile and have it on my snipe list for $.99 but would love to give it a try before I buy it at $1.99.
WordJong looks good too, I just really haven't decided what to get yet. Although the slower pace of WordJong sounds good.
The sound effects of WordFu are what have me sold Now I'll have to look into WordJong too... I hadn't heard of it.
WordFu is phenomenal, you're going to have a hard time finding anyone who regrets flipping out the two bucks for that game. Between the hilarious sound effects, the unique letter dice mechanics, karate chopping to enter words, and unbelievably fun multiplayer... It's a steal for $2.
You can pretty much just blindly press "BUY NOW" on any ngmoco game and end up with something good.
This is already one of my go-to games any time I'm bored, any "enhancements" are icing on the cake.....WordFu.
Depends on your mood really...I play both and they're terrific. Lately, WordJong has been getting a little more play because it can relaxing to play without time constraints. But, on days when I need some heavy word action, WordFu all the way.
i have both and id pick wordjong over wordfu. atm, wordfu is a bit laggy and frustrating at times since letters dont register when you press them. i dropped my iphone once since you have to shake to submit a word... lame. as someone had mentioned before, wordjong is less frantic and allows you to be more creative in creating longer words
both very polished games, but wordjong gives me more enjoyment.
well, looks like I'm picking up WordJong too
The interface is WordJong is pretty polished, and you get a daily puzzle with a high score that you try to beat. Because the game is based loosely on a Chinese game Mahjong, tiles are visible but they're only active based on which tile you select before. A nice feature is the Undo button, and you have some perks such as a Bomb which allows you to destroy a tile to get to another one and a Wild tile, which can be used to represent any letter to help you spell a word. It's a good thinking game without worrying about beating the clock.
You don't have to shake the phone to submit. You can tap the word you are spelling up top to submit as well. Or if you like to shake and don't want to shake as vigorously, you can set the Shake Sensitivity higher in the Options.
yea i changed the sensitivity soon after i dropped it. as you mentioned, i was probably being a bit too aggressive as far as shaking goes, so ill take some of the blame
if youre really from ngmoco, is there any word on an update for wordfu? any fixes for some of the aforementioned issues in my previous post?
I ended up going on a word game spree and bought WordFu, WordJong, and WordsWorth. All 3 are awesome games, and I'd recommend all of them. I probably like WordsWorth and WordFu the best so far. I'm not a big fan of the WordJong graphics. But it's a much harder game than the other two.
Yes, we have an update coming soon. We're trying to finalize it currently. It will have a few bug fixes, ability to listen to your iPod music while playing, starting time options, and another cool feature you'll find out about soon.
Thanks for suggesting WordsWorth
Thanks for suggesting WordsWorth. We are waiting to hear your feedback on the full version of WordsWorth.
