Falling letters are filling up the grid interface fast. You need to prevent the letters from flowing over the top. Does this game mechanic sound familiar? It is not surprising that a Word game that manages to grasp the same game drama of Tetris would quickly become a personal favorite.

In Popword you not only need a quick mind, but quick clicking skills as well. You use the mouse to click and drag on bordering letters to make words. As time progresses, other special letters appear that may either help or hurt your progress. 

My only real problem with this game is that it seems to be more about luck and quick reflexes than strategy. Getting longer words gets you more points. But with the grid continually filling up, you sometimes end up in a clicking and dragging panic to see if you can make any kind of word before you lose.

I believe that the game would have really benefited from a multiplayer type mode to compete with friends or even a computer AI. Nevertheless, the game in and of itself is very fun, addicting and challenging.  New Word games often hit me as stale, offering very little in the way of new design or UI, Popword, however was a refreshing breath of fresh air to the category.
