Panda Poet (A Word Game for Kindle) by Spry Fox

5 stars, 6 reviews

Do you like word games? And pandas?

With Panda Poet you use the letters on the game board to form words. Words formed from letters in open spaces create pandas. Words formed from letters near pandas make existing pandas grow.

The goal is grow the biggest panda possible. You get the highest scores from either creating the biggest possible panda or from forming the longest possible words.

To add to the challenge, each letter is only available for a fixed number of turns. Each time you enter a word, all the letters on the screen come one step closer to expiring. When a letter expires, it is replaced by a skull, which prevents you from growing your pandas in that direction. This makes playing Panda Poet a delicate balancing act: you must consider where a letter is located on the grid and how soon it will expire, not simply spell the longest word you can.

Try it today and see!

  1. Nathan, just wanted to give my feedback on something related to your blog. One of my preferred features for blogs I visit is being able to see who has left a recent comment. I know near the bottom right of the page you have that feature, but I think it is preferable to have in near the top, with the box displaying the first five comments or so. Like the way the Digital Reader blog has it set up.

    Just my two cents.

    • Thanks for your feedback. I was actually thinking about swapping it for the most viewed section on the left side since that pretty much stays the same. I don’t know though. I need to change the styling on the comments if I do that because the layout is kind of hideous the way it is now.
