WEBoggle is a web-based Multiplayer Boggle Game where you can play and have fun, but the website was already down this morning the second time I check it to write about it. The game is too much fun, and personaly I find it very addictive too. When the timer starts, each player searches the assortment of letters for words of three letters or more (four or more on the 5×5 board). When you find a word, type it into the blank and press the ENTER key. Words are formed from adjoining letters. Letters must join in the proper sequence to spell a word. They may join horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, to the left, right, or up-and-down. No letter cube, however, may be used more than once within a single word.
What’s interesting that the game is always running, and you may join it anytime, you don’t even need to register to start playing but of course you have to register to join the top scores. Online games are always gourmand in resources consuming, and certainly with AJAX the game should be running on a robust server to allow more players to join the game. You don’t have to download plugin or other to play just a browser and you can go. WEBoggle is available in two flavors 4×4 and 5×5. The game is written with Perl and AJAX and is using a 90,000 word dictionary.
