Word Challenge is a 1-player word forming game similar to the Parker Brother's game Boggle

In standard mode, players are given a 4 x 4 grid of 16 randomized letters, with the goal of making as many 3-or-more letter words as possible in a period of time. Words must be formed by using the next nearby letter, and each letter can only be used once in forming a word. The game includes a built-in dictionary, and only available words may be used to score points. The player competes against a computer opponent, with the goal of typing more correct words in a given time period than the computer opponent discovers.

Players can modify the skill of the computer opponent, timer time, size of the game board, scoring method, and other aspects.
