Word Derby Launches For iOS

A new app has launched for the iPhone and iPad called Word Derby. It’s sort of like a new generation version of the classic Scrabble.

Chillingo, the publisher behind many mobile games and a subsidiary of Electronic Arts, announced today that Word Derby is currently available for purchase for Apple’s mobile handsets.

The game is a turn-based, word strategy game where vocabulary is the key to victory. Fans of word games will surely find the title thrilling.

Ed Rumley, COO of Chillingo commented in the press release, saying…

“Word Derby is destined to be the next word game obsession,” … “This indie game creatively blends word building in a naturally competitive social derby environment and is bound to bring endless hours of non-stop entertainment for fans around the world.”

Unlike EA and Hasbro’s Scrabble, Word Derby is actually getting lots of rave reviews from customers and I suppose it’s because the game is free-to-play. You can grab a copy of Word Derby right now for iOS off the app store.
