    Overview

    No Caption Provided

    Wordament (also known as Microsoft Wordament) is a free-to-play massively-multiplayer online digital word puzzle game developed by You vs. the Internet and released digitally by Microsoft for Windows Phone on April 1, 2011.

    Playing similarly to the game Boggle, Wordament has players finding as many valid words from a 4x4 grid of letters (where each word can only be constructed by adjacent/diagonal tiles, each tile used only once) as they can in a limited amount of time. Unique to the game is its multiplayer functionality, as all players join a single continuous synchronized multi-round session. All players are given the same puzzle and are ranked among other players in the post-round leaderboards (which reset after some amount of time).

    The game later supported Xbox Live functionality (including optional gamertag usage and achievements), multiple language support (both with the user interface and with the puzzles themselves), and updated graphics. As a free-to-play game, it uses in-game banner advertisements.

    It was later released for Windows 8 PCs on October 26, 2012 (as an official launch title for the Windows Store), for iOS devices on December 21, 2012, for online browsers (via MSN Games) on January 31, 2013, and for Android devices on October 4, 2013. It is notable for being the first game for non-Microsoft platforms to have Xbox Live support. The game later received a sequel in 2014, titled Wordament Snap Attack. The PC version of the game was later replaced in 2017 with the collection Microsoft Ultimate Word Games, which includes an updated version of the game along with two additional games (Word Twister and Crosswords).

    It is considered to be a successor to the Microsoft Entertainment Pack game WordZap.
