Windows 8 Game to Create Words Using Alphabetical Grid: Word Up!

Word Up! is a free app for Windows 8 and 8.1 devices in which the aim of the game is to create words of as many letters as possible by clicking on the letters shown on the alphabetical grid. When you run the game, you will be presented with an option to start the game. Once you have started the game, you will be shown an unordered grid of letters on your screen. You have to click on these letters in such a way and order that they form a meaningful word at the bottom of the screen, and once you have done that, simply click on the Word Up! button and you will be awarded the points for the same. Each incorrect word costs you negative points, and each correct word grants you score depending on the length of the word that you have typed.
