Developer Snapshot: "Chicktionary is one of the most popular word games on the Internet and now you can hatch up some fun on your iPhone!"

Word games are one of my favorites, because I really do like stretching my mind, and recovering the vocabulary located somewhere in my brain! Chicktionary is a fun and clucking good word game that the whole family is sure to enjoy. In this game, each hen wears a letter on his tummy. The object of the game is to create as many words as you can which will take on the form of eggs that are then placed in the egg crates. Some of the fun features of Chicktionary are as follows:

- Shake your iPhone to shuffle the chickens and get an idea of new words.
- Play through 300 Levels of word fun.
- Earn Eggchievements for crazy stuff or just playing the game like a pro.
- Enjoy tons of other features such as save game, local and worldwide scoreboards,
hidden Easter eggs, game statistics and more.

When you open your Chicktionary app, you will be greeted with some awesome banjo strummin', finger tappin, country music. You will also be given choices such as Rules, Play and Connect to Facebook. Upon tapping Rules, you will be shown a fancy placard that gives you neat and detailed instructions on the game. Tap Play, and you will be shown another placard with options to: Play Chicktionary, view Stats and High Scores, Challenge a friend, as well as see your excellent Eggchievements! To play the game, you are provided with modes which are Speed Play (a 3-minute game) and Long Play (find as many words as possible in 2 minutes, then play the rest of the game at your leisure).

I played the 3-minute game, as time is always an issue, and was having a huge amount of fun making words, while both hearing and seeing the hens clucking and spasticaly moving around. Not only that, but I had a good laugh upon forming an incorrect word and hearing the hens cluck, "uh-oh!". You can get a Beak Sneak which shows you one letter in each of the unformed egg words (otherwise known as a big hint)! In your frantic rush, you will hear the clock ticking down when you're near the end of your 3-minute time allotment. I thoroughly enjoyed this cute and playful, family iPhone game powered by Bing.
