    wow what a marketing strategy.
    name would suggest it's some cool new rpg, but it's actually some boring educational puzzle game.

    Everything old is new again.

    It's pretty cool, but I really take issue with some of the 'which type of word is this' games. Some of the words have multiple definitions and literally have multiple correct answers even though the game doesn't think so.

    Unlike the US version (Spelling Challenges), the Euro version speak out the word instead of showing it to you (the case with the US version). So now, the game is playable and not a cakewalk like the US one is.

    It's now at par with the PSP version, with the bonus of having stylus control.

    This is on the PSP?

    On a side note, was there ever a GBA or NDS version of Boggle?

    Eh, good for an educational game, but it seems like anyone with halfway decent spelling skills can walk all over this game (played it on the PSP)

    Yes, it's the same game. Spelling Challenges PSP features voices as well.

    Yes, there's a Boggle on NDS, it's a 4-in-1 made by the shovelware guys at DSI. Passable if you like Boggle.

    Come on!

    Everyone knows the best game with the title of Spellbound was the Magic Knight classic from MAD on the 8-Bits back in the day...

    In fact, an update would work great on the DS with all those windows and pointers!
