    This was well done, but I just don't enjoy the concept. It looks beautiful, but it was frustrating not knowing how my words would be scored and not being able to control the anagram selected. it might be better using arrow keys / the accelerometer instead of just tapping.

    I miss more content in your game.

    It felt like you put more effort into the game engine than the game play, and the engine is very nice. The wheel turning when it hits the ground is a nice touch. However, I didn't find the game itself engaging. It isn't clear what the challenge is, or how the scoring works (it only found one word even though there were many other combinations possible). Sometimes letter would show up very high and impossible to skip.

    Overall I think the engine would have been better utilized for a more traditional arcade game. You got a pretty good start with the engine.

    It's a nice idea, but can get repeating after some games.

    lol, it was definitely unique if anything. I can't say I loved playing the game, but I've never seen anything like it before.

    Adding keyboard support would be nice.
