Unless you have a brain like a dictionary then it’s highly likely that as a child you dreaded taking spelling tests at school.
Nothing exposes your weak grasp of English more than being tasked with correctly constructing massive words, so you’d expect a game based around spelling to be about as entertaining as a Jedward acoustic gig.
However, we’re pleased to report that AbraWordabra manages to achieve the impossible. It skilfully combines frantic touchscreen action with Scrabble-like gameplay, and the end result is a family-friendly title that tests your reactions as much as that soft, spongy object located inside your skull.
Cunningly fusing word play with finger-friendly action, AbraWordabra offers something that’s a little different from the norm, and is well worth investigating
