Game Description:

Wordament ® Snap Attack ™ is a brand-new, fast-paced word-building tournament that challenges your brain in 2 1/2-minute rounds. Players from around the world compete on the same board, using the same clock, making as many Snaps as possible. At the end of each round, a real-time leaderboard shows how all participants ranked by score.

In Wordament Snap Attack, score points by building words with colored movable letter tiles that connect to fixed black letter tiles on the game board. Snaps are valid words that can be read from left to right or top to bottom. The more tiles a Snap includes, the more points it’s worth.

Wordament Snap Attack tracks your progress by maintaining rich statistics about your gameplay, including your best Snap, total score, first-place finishes, and more. Xbox Leaderboards show who’s rocking it for the day, hour, and overall. Climb the ranks and earn achievements and bragging rights along the way.† Will you be the next Snap Attack champion?

    This whole affair is so idiotic. MS platforms, the major sources of the company’s wealth, are fighting for differentiation and relevance, and Nadella is giving away the differentiation to MS’ competitors for pittance, and everyone is scratching his head as to why things aren’t working out. Nadella’s apologists say protecting and reinforcing your ecosystem is an old fashioned way of thinking. But that is like saying Force = mass x acceleration is also an old way of thinking. Seriously you guys, until the universe radically changes Force will always equal mass times acceleration. Likewise, it will always be sound thinking to protect and reinforce your ecosystem, and not compromise it for a relatively few bucks, so that it unravels. When all is said and done, MS’ competitors and customers could have never asked for a better MS CEO. This guy is practically handing the keys to the castle to them.

      As if Ballmer wasn’t doing the same thing. It was a company policy before Nadella was elected as CEO this is nothing new at all. Changes aren’t going to be radical soon as he gets his foot in the door give him a few years then start blaming I’m sure he isn’t even thinking about meager word games being cross platform at the moment.

        For quite a number of years, MS has been increasingly becoming heavily cloud and cross platform based. All these point to probable Nadella influences, and the likelihood that Nadella for a while, has been a (if not the) top candidate, to take over from Ballmer, after Ballmer left.

        My guess is that Ballmer was pressured to go cross platform heavily, but he resisted as long as he could, per his instincts on the matter. Ballmer’s instincts were correct. People act as if new eras mean the principles which govern their world have changed. Principles never change; only landscapes and opportunities do. It is always the case that you never sacrifice the integrity of your ecosystem / community, for the ambitions of individual members, or else you will lose the ecosystem / community. What Nadella wants to do, can have no other effect than shatter the current Microsoft platforms focused ecosystem, putting the investments of developers and other partners in the lurch. Because when (not if) Windows crashes, so will the value of MS’ partners’ products / services / businesses. Windows and Microsoft may have been able to withstand the pressures of previous cross platform efforts, because they were relatively subdued, but Nadella’s no holds barred approach, will rupture the ecosystem, and then the value of Windows, as well as partners’ software and services on the platform, will plummet.

    The other day I was thinking, after Skype, Office (touch) and Cortana -as MS stated-, will be better in iOS and Android, why am I there?
    Then I thought we still have neat games like halo and such which makes it different.
    Now, I’m Done. Back to iOS. to get a better Microsoft’s services fully-featured in other platforms.
    Nadella is all about services, where the money is. And leaving their own platform.

      I thought about iOS then I looked at the thing and nightmares of the return of the apple newton returned. They really need to redo that lame UI and get a larger phone. I really don’t like their finger print reader either the longer I stick with a WP the more attached I become. The thing is I don’t play wordament or many games on the thing anyway..

    And I bet, it’s a matter of time before Microsoft sees less popularity for their platform (Windowsphone, Windows) , after -Ballmer’s time- getting market share quickly and threat to other’s platforms
