Word Up Dog is one of Randy Jackson’s favorite sayings, but it’s also the name of a new Android Game from Sarah Norway maker of the fine strategy game known as Rebuild. Word Up Dog is about as different as you can get from her previous game, and it’s also unlike any other word game you’ve ever played. Word Up Dog is the tale of a hip-hop loving puppy that’s become stuck underground after falling into a hole. You’ll have to go to the bottom to rise to the top and you’ll accomplish this through digging and stringing together words. Think of it like Gem Miner, but with letters instead of gems and a cool cast of 80s inspired Hip-hop characters in place of the dirty old miner. Needless to say digging for words is a blast and the game puts a fresh new take on the tired and overdone word game genre. I’ve only spent a short time with Word Up Dog, but it’s quickly become one of my favorite word games. It’s obvious from the opening intro that the game has a lot of humor (nice Fresh Prince nod) and you’re going to have a lot of fun digging your way through its funky world. We’ll have a full review up of this one next week, until then I highly suggest you check it out for yourself. You can pick up Sarah Norway’s Word Up Dog for $1.99 on Google Play.
