Summary

A truly original app for iOS and Android, Moxie Classic is a deceptively easy-to-learn word transformation game. It allows you to form words at your own pace from the letters that are individually presented. Though you don’t need a vocabulary the size of Webster’s dictionary, strategic thinking is a huge asset in building valuable words and avoiding the dreaded “Twaddle.”

Description

Moxie is a word transformation game invented in 2009 by Christopher and Velva York. The object is to create the greatest number – and value – of words possible as letters are presented one-by-one without breaking the word chain (an infraction known in Moxie as a “Twaddle”). The option to make higher-value animal, vegetable, or mineral “Moxie words” provides an additional level of strategy.

Having debuted in the early days of the iTunes store, Moxie has maintained steady growth since early 2009 and benefits from a very active and loyal fan base. It has received positive attention from such notable publications as Mashable148AppsIGN Wireless, and TUAW.

By the end of 2014, Moxie had been downloaded more than 900,000 times, and 70 million games had been played.
