WORDPOP! is a bit like Boggle -- you look for words on a grid of letters, the longer the better (though the letters have different values as well, as in Scrabble). There's a twist, though: After you find and submit a word, those letters vanish and the rest of the letter tiles slide down to fill in the gap. You can rotate the board clockwise, which causes the tiles to resettle, often allowing new words. You can also earn bonus tiles that you can place into empty spaces. The three difficulty levels give you different numbers of bonus tiles at start and have different scoring thresholds for earning bonus tiles. Each time you clear the board, you get a new set of tiles, and you continue until you can't find any more words. The game is fun and the interface looks great. It would be nice if the game detected when there were no more combinations, or perhaps an "end game" button. As it is, there's just a "new" button, which quits the current game and starts a new one, which is counterintuitive. Otherwise, for fans of word games WordPop! is a fun little diversion.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
