SUMMARY: See how fast you can unscramble the words in a test against time

iJumble is another enjoyable word puzzle for the iPhone that pits you against a fast moving timer in an effort to unscramble word after word to score the ultimate high score. It can get very addicting and fast paced, plus there's always room for you to skip a specific word if you get hung up on it.

When you start out the game, the jumbled letters are dropped directly in front of you and it's your job to switch them around so that they make sense. You gain points for every complete you get as the clock ticks away, so the faster you go through it the better.

But if you do get caught up on a word, you can lose some points to find the first letter of the word or skip that word completely losing even more points. They take the points away as a percentage of your total, so you'll probably want to use this sparingly unless you're ok with a zero score.

It's an interesting word puzzle style game, but having a price attached to it does make it less attractive. iJumble is very simple and straight forward with no real bells or whistles. It does have a hand up on games like Blanks, but it wouldn't really hold it's own against Sextuple Word Challenge.
