WORDS MINE is a free-form word building game that has one basic premise: Build words out of the available letters as quickly as possible, scoring higher for using more difficult letters. It accomplishes this task very well. The dictionary used for the app is large, seemingly containing all well-known words, including some swear words. Players don't get a bonus for spelling longer words, however. The app has an option to view game records, which includes high score, highest level achieved, the number of new words that have been entered, and the highest score for one word. The gameplay itself is simple, fun, and well done. Some of the things surrounding the game, such as mediocre instructions and ads at the bottom of the screen, detract from the experience, but are easy to ignore.

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.
