joustyMention Mobile has made the paid release of their fun word game, Word Derby (normally 99&cent) FREE today, so if you are still playing the ad-supported version, now’s the time to switch.

If you’ve never played the game, it’s a mix of word game and carnival horse racing, where you earn tickets as you attempt to build the best scoring words to propel your horse forward to victory against the other wordsmithing jockeys (Facebook friends, strangers or AI). The tickets can be used to purchase single-use power ups or additional steeds which have special abilities. Right now, you can purchase the horse named Jousty for FREE.

Already Own Word Derby And Having Issues Since The v1.4 Update?

If you recently updated your Word Derby game and now you see some other guy’s matchups and a whole ton of tickets, you will need to uninstall the app, re-install it and re-authenticate with Facebook, to regain access to your horses, tickets and online matches. If you haven’t already, don’t forget to unlock Jousty once you are in your account again.

Mention Mobile is working on making a fix available as soon as possible for the bad update.
