I made a new version of Vocabulary Mosaic. This version has larger tiles, some visual improvements, control improvements, and perhaps most importantly, it can save your progress automatically so long games do not have to be played in a single sitting.
- Windows Installer
- Mac OS X Application
- Debian Linux .deb package (also for Ubuntu)
- Android Phones and Tablets (also in the google app store)
- Plain zip file (Windows or other Linuxes)
Info and screenshots below are about the old version from 2010:
I had recently been playing a lot of Words-With-Friends with my Sister and my Brother-in-Law, and that had me thinking about word-tile games.
One thing I don’t like about word tile games is the limited size of the board quickly cramps the word space, and the double and triple score boxes force any winning strategy to emphasize small words on score boxes in favor of long words.
So I set out to make a word tile game that rewards long words most of all. The result was Vocabulary Mosaic.
There is more information about the making of the game in the hamsterspeak article. (old version)
