Whenever I travel I try to have a few activities to keep me busy. These will mostly consist of reading, but that’s not enough. My eyes get tired eventually, and I crave a video game. But without a portable gaming system I’m out of luck. Thankfully, there’s always Word Mole on my BlackBerry. It’s not the greatest, but it’s free. Here are some other free word games for your BlackBerry that can keep you entertained as you move to and fro this holiday season. The first is WordSearch, a new and free game from our store. There’s not much really to explain with this one. It’s a basic word search game. It provides puzzles of different sizes: 8×6, 10×7, 12×9, and 15×12. With over 2,700 different words you could play this for a while before you’re finding the same words over and over again. That’s fine — it is free, after all. You can get WordSearch at the Store. If you really dig it you can buy the premium version, which includes bigger puzzles, for $1.49. WordDefense is another game, but this requires a bit more proficiency with the keyboard. Basically, you type words as they appear on your screen — the faster the better. In that way it’s akin to an app that helps boost your typing speed. But it’s pretty fun at the same time. And it can make you look busy, too. I’m sure I looked like a guy furiously typing an email when people saw me playing it on the subway. You can get the first three levels of WordDefense for free. The full app just costs a buck. We’ll be enjoying the turkey tomorrow, so you won’t see us around these parts. From all of us here at BBGeeks, Happy Thanksgiving.
