If you love word games but are getting bored with basic crossword games like Words with Friends, then Lexatron is just the game to flex your vocabulary muscles.

Lexatron is basically a word race. Players lay down letter tiles to make words just like in Scrabble; however, instead of trying to rack up the most points, the objective is to snake a path from one corner of the board to the other. The first player to reach the opposite corner wins the match.

While it's a good strategy to try and make words that block your opponent's letters, both players have the ability to detonate a bomb that will clear the bath and allow for words to continue in a given direction.

Lexatron is a fun word game that's very easy to learn, but requires quick thinking and strategic planning as the number of letters and bombs available diminish over the course of a match. Word wizards with an iOS device can download the game for $0.99 when it's released on October 10th, 2012. Stats for Strategic Linguistic Games Trending: Older & Mild
