Make sense out of alphabet stew. In Rustic Citrus, rush against the clock to make as many words out of a jumble of letters as you can. You gain points for building smaller words, but if you find the biggest word possible, you’ll advance to the next round and get a chance to build your score even higher! Start off with 5-letter jumbles, and if you’re feeling daring make the jump to 6-letter and even 7-letter games. Take some time to stop and notice the smooth visual style, the intuitive gameplay and animations, and the jazzy soundtrack – but not too much time, you only have 2 minutes! Rustic Citrus features an enormous dictionary of over 27,000 words so every game will be fresh like an orange. If you’re in the middle of a great run and you’re interrupted, don’t worry – you can save any number of games and return to them at any point. If you're up for the challenge, there are also 55 fresh achievements for you to earn. And if at last you just can’t get that one word, Rustic Citrus saves all your local high scores so you’ll know when you’ve gone further than ever before. Rustic Citrus’s two minute rounds make it perfect for playing a quick round when you have a spare moment. Add some flavor to your alphabet soup with Rustic Citrus!

Best Text Twist Game for Windows 8!

I was looking for a text game like text twist for a long time! The other ones in the store aren't as polished and beautiful as this one, and you can even stop and start a game/save your rounds so you don't always have to give up on your score when you need to run. The game has 5, 6, and even 7 letter game modes if you're looking for a challenge! Pretty addicting!

Incredibly enjoyable and well thought out

Let's first start with the fact that the title itself is an anagram of itself. That alone shows that more thought went into this version of text twist than any other on the market. The game then uses the title for a theme that results in a very clean appearance. The three different modes (5-, 6-, 7-letters) is a pleasant change from other versions, seeing as it provides more challenging gameplay. Definitely provides entertainment!

many real words are not accepted

axe is a real word. *** is a real word

Better than Text Twist

Some words are not really words (nohow) but I still like it and am looking forward to competing against myself. I haven't figured out if I can see other players scores yet but I hope there is a way.

Love this game

A friend suggested this game as I like word games. Rustic is citrus spelled backwards. The game is quick paced and fun. It is challenging on many levels as you try to find as many words as you can in a specified time period given 5 or more letters. This is certainly keeping me on my "mental toes" This is fun for all ages.
