wordamentIf you’re the sort of gamer who absolutely must collect every achievement in a video game, you might be interested to learn that Microsoft’s Wordament game for the Windows Phone and Windows 8 platform has made its way onto Android. The word puzzle game will allow gamers to play as a guest, or log in with their Xbox Live account and use their gametag, which in turn will allow them to start racking up achievements. Xbox Live achievements was previously only available for Windows Phone devices, at least as far as mobile gaming is concerned, so this would make it a first for an Android game to allow a gamer to collect Xbox Live achievements and points at the same time.

For Windows Phone users, Microsoft has also updated the game and will be native to the Windows Phone platform, removing the letterboxing format. The update will allow for logging in via Facebook and will support new languages as well. Oddly enough it seems that Microsoft is not syncing the achievements, meaning that if you’ve played the Windows Phone or iOS version of the game, you will have to collect the achievements all over again. The game is available for free so if you’d like to check it out and start collecting new achievements, hit up the Google Play store for the download!
