EA, Scrabble, Electronic Arts, Apple, iPhone, iPhone 3GFingerGaming reports that EA’s Scrabble, which they showed off last week during a press demonstration, will only have a local Wi-Fi mode. When Electronic Arts announced the game for Apple’s iPhone many gamers hoped that this addictive board game would have an online multiplayer mode. According to EA it’s Apple’s fault that they can’t put an online mode in Scrabble because they haven’t made this ability yet. Because Apple doesn’t have the ability for online gaming yet developers are using other tools such as Neutron from Exit Games.

Use a tile and the game replaces it by the one below it. Clear an entire column and you score extra, clear the whole board and you get even more points. It’s out in the App Store for £2.99.
