4J Studios Ask iPhone Gamers:‘Will You Wuggle?’

Dundee: Friday, 9 October 2009:

“Wuggle, verb, meaning to play with or to arrange letters.”

There are many things we’re encouraged not to do as children, such as don’t play with your food, don’t play with the worms in the garden and so on. If there’s one thing the creative types at Dundee-based developer 4J Studios do want you playing with, it’s your words.

The innovative studio recently announced Texas Wuggle for iPhone and iPod Touch consoles, launching late Octover. Now, see where the series started with the original version of Wuggle, available now on iTunes for£0.59/$0.99/€0.79.

The aim is to move letters around the screen to form a word then strike them together to submit it for scoring. Your word score is based on word length and the individual letter value. It’s a fast-paced and insanely addictive take on the popular Scrabble format.

Boost your score with multiplier chains. Spell a word with four or more letters to gain a x2 multiplier. If you are a word-ninja however, you can boost your multiplier up to x256!! Can you reach the dizzying highs of Wuggle mastery?

Wuggle has two exciting game modes including‘Survivor’, which is a race against the clock to find as many words as you can before the time runs out. Extra time can be gained by entering words, with more time rewarded for bigger words.‘Title GP’ swaps time limit for tile limit, meaning you must get the highest score possible before you run out of letters. Can you Wuggle them all?

4J Studios has just revealed a hilarious new gameplay trailer for Wuggle that you can view via the link below:

So, we hope you will want to review Wuggle and it’s big brother Texas Wuggle on your website. If you would like screenshots and promotional codes for either game, please get in touch with Dave at Ink Media.

This just leaves, one question…

Do you Wuggle?
