What's good: Word game aficionados have cause to celebrate because Oh, My Word! 2 is now out for the iPhone and iPod touch! In this game, your objective is not another variation of the usual forming of words out of available letters. Instead you'll work with two given five-letter words and guess a specific word that falls between them alphabetically. You have a limited number of guesses that will replace your initial clues as guides which you will use to bring you closer to the correct answer, as well as hints to help you out of trickier situations. For example, two words are on the board: 'crave' at the top and 'style' at the bottom. If the word you need to get is 'dream,' you'll eventually find it out as you narrow down the possibilities by guessing, say, 'deals' and 'fresh' and so on. This expands the game to include elements of luck and strategy to enter as many correct words in as few guesses as possible. Prove your vocabulary skills to unlock Time Attack and Survival modes where you battle against your own limited lexicon and the clock, respectively. All in all, Mobile Pie does an extremely great job by coming up with a creative new take on a crowded genre that not only packs hours of diversion but is great to play anytime and anywhere!

Suggestions for improvement: Add more features to the main gameplay, such as letter scores and power ups. Although not necessary, background music can really makes things more exciting.
