Wordsworth is a word making game by 99Games. $1.99
Wordsworth is an addicting game where you must achieve certain point totals by creating words that link together on the grid. Everytime you achieve the required total you move up a level. This game is easy to go and play straight away. When the game finished downloading I automatically went to play the game and got the hang of it straight away.
The graphics are quite simple and expertly done. There is nothing over the top or in your face as it is not needed for a game like this. The game has a slick feel to it with the ease of making words.
There is a nice background music when playing the game. It is easy to listen to and most of the time I can't even notice that there is in game music. Sound effects for the game are used for everything in game and fit the app quite well. A nice option to turn off the background music while keeping the sound effects was recently implemented.
The game is played with letters on hexagonal tiles. Grids of 4x4, 5x5, 6x6 or 7x7 are used in the gameplay. These can be changed in the options. You must make words on the grid bigger than the minimum word length which you can set again the options. Three different game rules are used for any type of person. TWL which are the US rules. SOWPODS are the rules for all other English speaking countries, as they spell words differently (color, colour). ENABLE is the most researched and maintained word list, so both TWL and SOWPODS. When in trouble there are bomb words which are on a timer and will explode if not used in time. You have a chance to having green or gold tiles to come out as they have special multipliers to that letter.
This is a game for anyone. The addictive gameplay will keep you coming back for more. 99Games listen to feedback and regularly tune the game to what the customers ask which is great. I would recommend you try the lite version and if you like it don't hesitate to buy it!
