Imangi may seem like just another word game a first glance, but Imangi has a twist that makes the game different and challenging. Each row and column is actually a dial that lets you rotate the letters. The plan is to get as many words as possible on that one board. Imangi seems like it would be simple, but it is actually very difficult.
The instructions page, which can be accessed from the home page is well written and explains everything you need to know to get started. It also breaks down Imangi into sections, so if you are only confused about one part of the game it’s simpler to find help rather than searching through 100’s of words of text in order to find out one little thing. The game options lets you choose your word list, toggle the game sounds, and decide whether you want to have popup instructions appear during gameplay.
Once you push new game, Imangi offers up four game types. The first is pretty standard — there’s no time limit and just involves getting as many words as possible. Speed, also self-explanatory, is a timed game that allows you to clear words as you form them as well as create adjacent words to earn extra points.
Daily Challenge is a gameboard that gets posted each day. It allows Imangi players from all over the world to play the same gameboard and see how they rank against others. Friend Challenge follows a similar idea. If you do well in a particular game you can challenge your friend by sending them the same board to see if they can beat your score.
One of the best things, however, is that Imangi isn’t limited to the English dictionary. Imangi supports many other main languages including Spanish, French, and Italian. So, not only is Imangi more challenging than other word games, but it’s the most inclusive I have seen yet.
