Zynga brings back an old friend

Patrick Devaney


It is a distinctly satisfying feeling when an old friend comes back into your life. You’re simultaneously overcome with nostalgia for the good times, you shared in the past, and excitement of what is yet to come. Mobile game developing behemoth Zynga has inspired this feeling in millions by bringing back a game that is not only an old friend but also the perfect vehicle for connecting with old friends. Yes, Words with Friends 2 is now available for download.

Zynga has done very well with the sequel to the Scrabble-inspired smash hit. It is true to the original classic version, but it brings a few added elements to make it a good game in its own right.

New features include a new solo mode against AI versions of some of the world’s greatest minds, a collaborative team mode that puts teams of friends up against the clock, and a social dictionary with over 50,000 words. To make the transition easier, Zynga has made it so that if you upgrade to the Words with Friends 2 from the original, you’ll be able to bring all of your contacts and games with you. Even if you’ve started a game on the original, you’ll be able to finish it on the new version.

It has been a while since I handed out a beating on Word with Friends, but the sequel has more than enough to draw me back in. I’ve already started sending out invites to friends, but I’m yet to take on an AI opponent.
