Boggle Free is an Android game based off the original 'board' game by Bill Cooke. The aim is to link letters together to form words. The longer the word the better your score.

Boggle Free allows you to play a solitaire game, in which you try to beat your own high score, or enter 'pass and play mode', where players take it in turn to hold the tablet hand have their go.

Quick Mode is the classic version of the game. To start the three minute timer, shake the tablet, and a 4 x 4 square of lettered dice will be jumbled about to give you your playing board. You can link letters horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Once you have completed a word, tap on the last letter, and it will be added to your list. If the word is not valid, however, you will receive an annoying buzzing sound.

To help increase your score, there are bonuses you can use. For example, you can stop the timer for ten seconds, ask for a clue, or triple the score of your words for ten seconds. You can use these up to eight times.

At the end of the round, you will be told your highest scoring word, and longest word. You will also be shown how many words you found out of the ones available. What I find annoying here is just the sheer amount of obscure words on the list that you would never expect to be valid. These are typically three letter words such as 'aal'.

There are Extra Modes you can play too. These include the previously mentioned Pass n' Play, Scenario, and Custom. With Custom Mode, you get to change some of the rules, such as swapping letter round on the board halfway through a match. In Scenario Mode, you are given the task of finding certain words within a time limit. Sometimes these words are already on the board, and other times you have to make other words to rearrange the letters about.

There are several achievements that you can unlock while playing, and overall Boggle Free is a good game. It has one fundamental flaw, however, which is a tendency to crash. It might depend which tablet you have, so it is worth downloading to see if it works for you, but after my first few games, it started to crash continuously, and I had to uninstall it.
