Here’s a fast paced and fun game that’ll have you translating and matching jumbled words in no time (dljuem = jumbled = mixed). Jumbled is a word game that scrambles up regular every day words and tests your ability to correctly decipher them and match them up with a word that it most closely resembles. It sounds pretty simple, but as you progress you’ll see things can get hairy quickly. Words keep getting longer, time continues to slip away, the pressure of every decision gets greater, guessing is risky because incorrect answers take lives, and before you know it your brain is scrambled. Do you have what it takes to conquer Jumbled?
Created by DREWSE, Jumbled measures your ability to think clearly and logically under pressure. Big-time scores can only come from big-time players. The likelihood that you play the game often enough to memorize every word combination is slim. That’s because there’s over 100,000,000 possible word scrambling combinations within the game. SAY WHAT!
Jumbled caters to all levels of players by offering three levels of difficulty (easy, medium, hard). I can say first hand that easy mode has the tendency to lull you into the sense of feeling slightly genius before it quickly slaps you in the face! I cruised through the first dozen or so jumbled words thinking I was unstoppable. Once I reached the 100,000 points level I was quickly put into my place. Out of nowhere I found myself staring at words longer, the optional in game hints that display the first two letters of the word after half of the time has passed became a frequent occurrence, my brain started to go blank, and my streak of correctly answered questions quickly turned into a downward spiraling guess fest. Before I knew it I’d burned through all five of my lives!
Jumbled is best described as fun under pressure. After several attempts I became more and more comfortable with the pace and pressures of the game which helps tremendously. The faster you answer questions correctly the more points you earn and the further up the global leaderboard you climb. The games rewards you with up to 20 achievement awards if you’re kicking but, and the opportunity to compare your high scores with the rest of the Jumbled playing community provides the fuel to keep you playing time and time again.
On thing I can say for sure, Jumbled is definitely a fun and challenging game that players of all ages can enjoy. If you’re the type of person that loves time killing apps and games, and loves things like crossword puzzles, Sudoku, etc., then you’re going to absolutely love Jumbled. At first glance it’s graphics, effects, interface, and imagery aren’t very impressive, but for what lacks in looks it makes up for with fun factor. It faced paced and addictive quality will likely have you turning to it time and time again whenever you’re looking to kill some time.
