If you've ever played a word game at a party, you probably remember how much fun it was. If you've ever been at a party where you're looking for a game to play and can't find it, you probably remember how little fun that was. Word Party is a word game for the iPhone that is similar to Taboo or Catch Phrase, but everything you need to play it is on one device.

When you load up the app, you're treated to some decent tunes for this type of game. You can read through the instructions for a remind, but basically you just can't say the word they give you, any of the words listed under that word on the card, do a ?sounds like?, or charade it at all. When you go into the actual game mode, it has you set two teams which you can name. From there you begin the game.

If the person reveals too much information, they press the oops button and are given another word. If they get it right, they press got it and pass the iPhone to the other team. The team that gets to three completes in the fastest amount of time wins. There are plenty of words in the game and the fact that it can be so easily updated means that there can be free additions to it or even expansion packs too.

IF you're not sure that you want to plunk down the money for a multiplayer only game for the iPhone, try the lite version out first. This game is definitely worth paying for if you're constantly with a group of friends and looking for something to do. If you're not into that type of scene, then you should probably pass over this app all together.
