So far so good

This is a pretty interesting puzzle game. It's a mix of a lot of things to keep you preoccupied. It's a bit like scrabble, where you are given a set of letters to make words in order to 'defend yourself' after you have been attacked by mice, skeletons, etc. You face these beings in dungeons, and these dungeons are shown on a World Map. The map shows where you are, and how many dungeons you will have to go through (which are a lot).
You are able to choose your own game mode, and these are your options:
Kid Mode - starts with extra health, words do double damage
Normal - Standard Rules
Wizard - Experts only! Starts on Dungeon 4. No oracle tiles
You really have to get creative with the words, for you cannot use the same word twice (it seems ever), so I can see this being a perfect game for a person really into puzzles.
For me personally it was a pretty good game, but I don't think I would get through the entire map in one sitting. It's definitely something for me to check into every once and a while when I'm bored, because it is a challenging game, it's just a tad redundant.
However, once you amass a certain amount of points there are extra squares you are given that have powers that play to your advantage (like a healing one, extra points, oracle eye that creates the best word out of all your letters, etc etc).
But I love the added paranormal-ish element to it - it's not just a regular word game. There are probably added features that I haven't gotten to (I'm on the fifth dungeon right now), so I can't wait to see what else is offered. I also appreciate that there are different modes, so you can practice a little and receive hints on how to play in the kid mode before attempting the normal or wizard modes.
