Word Derby Review (Modojo)

John Bedford (Modojo): Presentation is everything in mobile gaming, and having a unique hook is essential if you're to stand out in this crowded marketplace. Word Derby's approach to this problem is to deliver a very satisfying and solid word game, then dress it up as one of those fairground attractions where you furiously hurl balls into a hole in order to make your galloping horse inch closer and closer towards the finishing line. The better your word-score, the further you'll travel, so a multi-round race to the finish determines the winner of each game. (iPad, iPhone, Word Derby) 4/5
