WordsWorth Review

Posted by carolynn7 on February 16, 2009

For my second review, I’m going to talk about a game called WordsWorth. By it’s title, you would probably gather that it’s a word game. Now, I’m a puzzle game freak and my word game collection consists of very few games.
But WordsWorth will change your mind about word games. It’s brought to you by the fine folks at 99 Games Inc.

Game play is simple; trace the letters that make a word or touch each letter individually and press submit. The
screen will show you as you trace if you have created a word or not. (That’s great for finding those obscure words
you didn’t think existed) When you’ve reached a certain score, you go to the next level. There are various helper
tiles that appear during the game. There is also a red tile that is a timer. If you don’t use it before time runs out,
it’s game over. Now there are two game modes, Classic and Timed. In Classic mode your game ends when a timer tile’s
clock runs out. In timed mode, you have a certain amount of time to finish the level. If time runs out, well, you know
what happens.

What’s great about this game is that you can customize it in all sorts of ways. You can make the board bigger,
change dictionaries (They use TWL, SOWPODS, and ENABLE), adjust the minimum word size, and change the background and sound effect settings. There are lots of extras; Wild tiles, Bonus Point tiles, shuffle tiles and additional shuffles in the game to help you when you are hopelessly stuck. It also saves your current game for those times when you need to do something important. All these features make this game very replayable. You can make it as easy or as hard as you are in the mood for. I find the music very relaxing. The graphics are highly polished and you can tell a lot of work has been put into this game.
What’s not so great: Of course I’d like to see a global scoreboard, because who doesn’t like to compete for the best
score in the game? I’d also like to see a word list added so you can see what words you played, or a best word page
on the scoreboard listing highest scoring words, etc. The music is nice, but it can get repetitive. I’d like to see a
variety of music added.

All in all, I rate this game 5 of 5 stars. It’s addictive, has endless replayability and will change your mind about word
games. The developers are always working on updates and listen to suggestions to make this game even better. If you
don’t have it yet, what are you waiting for? It’s currently available in the App Store for $1.99
