Although we don't condone the use of the number '8' in words to replace 'ate' (it's a tired phonetic trick), we are in favour of more puzzle action on DS, and that's exactly what publishers Alten8 have lined up.
The aim of Wordsnake is to "build words of 3-8 letters from the random selection on the tile rack, and reach a target score before the time runs out," as Alten8 explains.
"Each new word is placed on the board from an existing letter tile, forming snake like structures, which means the words must begin or end with the existing letter. Subsequent tiles will disappear after a set time, which means the player must form new words to keep the snake alive and invalid words will reduce the players score."
So, if we're getting this right, it sounds like an interesting adaptation of Scrabble. Well, check out the first screens below and you'll see what we mean.
Wordsnake is due later this year, with the DS and PC versions expected first, followed later by Wii.
