Each Dabble game consists of 20 letters spread out over five different tiers which represent five different words. And so, its your mission to create five words of each exact length; two, three, four, five, and six letters. When a valid word has been made, the letters will turn from black to blue. You have five minutes to turn all letter tiles blue and solve the wordy puzzle.
Much like Scrabble, each letter tile has an assigned point value. More challenging letters like K, V, and X are worth a multiple of the standard letter’s value of 3 points. A word’s score is calculated by summing each letter’s point value and multiplying by the word’s length (e.g. VOTE would earn (12+3+3+3)*4 = 84 points). Subsequently, your final score is made up of each word’s score added to the points awarded for any time remaining (1 second = 1 point). Note: you don’t have to complete all five words to earn a final score.
After you’ve played a few rounds, make sure to check out the “Awards” section which contains badges for longest win streaks, fastest times, and highest scores. So far I’ve completed a 2 game win streak, a sub-two minute time, and a 600+ point round!
If you share your Android device with family/children or want to compete against friends, you’ll be happy to know there is the built-in ability to create up to five different profiles (each with its own badges and high scores). It would be nice to have global high scores not only across profiles on your phone but across all Android users.
Hint: start with the longer words first!
- Unique letters/words to solve each board
- Enhance your spelling and word-related skills
- Badges and high scores to track your progression
- Pleasant music and sound effects fit gameplay nicely
Areas for improvement:
- Add a global scoreboard to compare scores across profiles on a single device and across all Android users
Conclusion: The Dabble Android game is a challenging, fast-paced word game with high replay value. If you’re a fan of Scrabble and Wordfeud, you’ll surely enjoy this Android game as well!
