Ruzzle is the newest turn-based multiplayer word game released for mobile platforms. It takes inspiration from Boggle and the hit iOS title Scramble with Friends. The no-frills gameplay and simple touch-based controls will charm both casual gamers and word game fans.

The rules are simple: You and your online opponent take turns to make as many words as possible from 16 letters randomly laid out in a 4x4 grid. To create words, all you have to do is draw a line across letters with your fingers.

There are no strict rules regarding word formation. You can make words horizontally, vertically, diagonally, arrow-shape, in reverse order and any pattern recognized by the game, but make sure the line should be continuous and without breaks.

You can battle Facebook friends or play against random online opponents. Every new game is as challenging as the previous, forcing you to be quick and clever. However, forming plenty of words in 2 minutes is not easy. Here's how you can cheat at Ruzzle:

How to Form Words and Defeat Opponents

1. Create simple words first and then work your way through rare letters to create high-scoring words. Make 3-letter words and then go for 4-letter words.

2. Remember that each letter carries a point. Rare letters such as K, P and O carry more points. Try to combine common letters (alphabets with low points) with these rare letters to make a high-scoring word.

3. The game introduces special letter tiles a la Words with Friends. These special letters are scattered all over the grid and have icons like DL, DW, TL and TW. Creating words using these special tiles doubles/triples the score. In the example screenshot to your right, the word TOE carries a high score. “Os” value is worth 4 points (DL – Double Letter Score), whereas the word TOE is worth 12 points (T= DW or Double Word score). Try making words by combining these special letter tiles with common tiles.

4. Make sure you don’t miss any words. Start from the top portion of the grid. Later you can take care of the bottom portion of the grid to create words. This ensures you create maximum words from the grid.

5. You can create words from one word. The trick is to find letters ED, ER or S in the grid. (Example Bore – Bored, Long – Longer, Like - Likes)
