“Idol Words” for Apple phones, tablets and the iPod Touch, takes you deep into the jungle to uncover as many words hidden in ancient stone carvings; swipe your finger across the right letters to discover the word. If players use all the letters on the board, it flips to reveal a new challenge. Though this game is similar to others we’ve tried, it’s more fun.

Maybe it’s the graphics, maybe it’s the pace. We enjoyed playing random opponents. Choosing options like the multiplier for boosting your score or freezing a frame to slow everything down, all added to the fun. There’s also a daily challenge and a global tournament. On the first try, we were better than around 400 players, but there were another thousand better than us. We’re getting better every second.
