Decode anagrams on your BlackBerry

Do you enjoy stimulating your mind from time to time? Here’s a game that’s perfect for you. If you love working with puzzles and words, then you’ll definitely enjoy Unscramble. The player is tasked to think of as many words as possible with a given set of 8 letters. Of course, this is easier said than done considering that a time limit is imposed and a certain score must be reached. Longer words mean more points. Decoding the 8-letter word also gives bonus points.

Sadly, this brain teaser is only available for the BlackBerry Z10 and its Porsche Design counterpart. Do not fret. Future updates will include compatibility with the Z30 and the Q models.

If you think that this is the game for you, then head on over to BlackBerry World. It can be downloaded for $0.99.
