Microsoft has launched the Android version of its popular word finding game Wordament, on the Google Play Store and introduced Xbox Live achievements on the platform.
Wordament was launched back in 2011, by two Microsoft team members, for Windows Phone 7. It gained popularity among the Windows Phone users and was launched for Windows 8 as well. Microsoft has been using this game to introduce Xbox Live achievements on various platforms for quite some time now. In 2012, it was launched for iOS and became the first game to feature Xbox Live achievements on a non-Microsoft platform while in early 2013, it became the first browser-based Xbox Live game.
The game has always been popular for its achievements and ranking system and is successful at showcasing Microsoft's Xbox Live system to a wider audience. Users can get the Xbox Live benefits by signing in with their Microsoft account while playing the game. In addition to this, Wordament also supports login using Facebook and ability to post scores to Facebook and Twitter.
Along with the launch of the Android version, the developers have also updated the Windows Phone 8 version to run natively on the platform for a smoother experience. Android users can head to Google Play Store and give the game a try.
