Awordabble, available for Android phones and tablets through the Google Play store, is a word game in which you have to guess a word from its definitions in dictionaries. Playing much like other word games, this looks and plays well, and also has a trick or two up its sleeve.
The main trick I was talking about is the ability to play in English and Spanish. This is great for those who are learning one language or the other, and adds a clever twist to the game.
The main aspect of play is via multiplayer, where Awordabble has many options and things for you to do, with online play the big focus. You can challenge you friends to matches, and try to beat them in online rankings. The online play works well, inviting Facebook friends to play the game is a breeze, and I liked the fact you can play an instant rematch to try to get some revenge.
Train your mind to think in multiple languages, be prepared to learn vocabulary.
Your mission, in the language of your choice, be guessing words and in return get clues to beat your friends in multiplayer mode and get the highest score in the ranking trial, the letters disappear leaving a puzzle to form the correct word.

The actual gameplay is fairly standard, but well implemented. The game sets you with the task of guessing a word from a series of definitions. Some of them are very easy, but there are some really tricky word sin here as well, which wasn’t helped by some of the bad grammar I found. However, these instances were few and far between, and I found guessing the words both enjoyable and rewarding. You can always skip a word if you get stuck, although be careful as you are on a timer.
If you perform well and keeping finding words right away, the game will reward you with more time and hints, which I felt was a nice touch.
The app features a built-in translator that you can dictate words you find in the game, to find out about the word in Spanish or English, which is a nice little addition. The graphics are pretty well done, with a nice theme running throughout and good use of colour and fonts. Presentation was good all round, and helps to keep you coming back to the game.
Overall, Awordabble is an enjoyable word game. The idea of guessing words from definitions is professionally built upon, and there are plenty of extras to keep you playing. The two languages are served well, and the multiplayer options are top-notch. Awordabble is well worth a second look.
