“Waggle Words is a nice hidden gem among the App Store in recent weeks. I’m always up for a good word game, and this one is definitely a new favorite. I love the exquisite graphics and amazing sound design. Casual is the mode that I’m enjoying the most, but Daily gives me something to look forward to each day, and Speed is a real test. The power-ups provide variety and can change the tide of the game, helping you get closer to clearing out board. Replay value is high with this one, and I’ll be coming back to Waggle Words for a long time.”
After three plus years of development, Waggle Words launched on the App Store as the world’s first Augmented Reality enhanced word game on September 28th!
Since launch, Waggle Words was featured in the Made With Unity Showcase at Unite Austin, and attracted the attention of several other platforms and publishers.
Today, Rob Funnell wrote a glowing review of Waggle Words on TouchArcade. We are flattered at the level of detail Rob went into with his analysis of Waggle Words! It’s well worth the read!
Kind Words - TouchArcade
“However, Waggle Words excels amongst it’s peers in a far more unconventional and unexpected way for puzzle games – with some pretty ridiculous graphical effects.”

“Waggle Words works as both a showcase of the iPhone’s potential and an engrossing option for puzzle game fans, and hopefully will open the floodgates for even more similar titles pushing the boundaries of what mobile is capable of.”
