It's been a down year for the Nintendo DS' puzzle library, which has seen only a trickle of great additions after a few years in which gems practically rained from the sky.
How savvy, then, of Destineer to send reviewers fresh copies of one of those games that got lost in the shuffle of 2007's downpour. "WordJong" combines two dependable concepts — Mahjong and Scrabble — into one sleek game that's simple enough to sell itself, and if you never played or even noticed it last year, it's as good an addition to your DS library as anything that actually came out this fall.
