Are you addicted to flash games that play with words? Do you play Scrabble® at every family gathering? Do you do crosswords in your spare time? Do you love looking at words and coming up with various anagrams or their palindromes? If so, then WordsWorth is the perfect iPhone of iPod Touch game for you.
WordsWorth is your typical online flash game, just ported over to your iPhone. Similar to Bookworm, this game is simply a word making game. While it is easy at first, the longer you play, the harder it gets. The game gives you a honeycomb of letters, which you then combine to make words. The longer the word, the more points granted. Plus, like Scrabble®, different letters are worth different points. Create enough words, and score enough points, you move onto the next level. You can grab WordsWorth at the iTunes Application Store for the price of $.99 until 12/28/2008, on the 28th it become $1.99 (there is also a ‘lite’ version for you to try out).
Hey look, a nifty little video
(Note, I am not in this video, this is provided to me by 99games. That said, ‘sue’ is an English word and a name, thus his comment proves nothing.)
Does WordsWorth Sound easy? Well, it really isn’t. You can not always find the words easily (though for those who love Crosswords, or play Bookworm regularly, this should be easy) and they often are too short to get many points. Add to this the fact that you can limit the minimum letters needed which lets you require 5 letter or more for each word words. Plus, there are some ‘timed’ tiles that make you use that specific letter quickly. The game does, however, allow you to ‘shuffle’ the tiles by shaking your iPhone three times or more per level. Though there are some ‘timed’ tiles, it is really more of a low-pressure time wasting game then anything else.
