BackWords Game is a fun and entertaining game of guessing words in reverse. Choose a word and send the recording to your friend. Your friend will hear your word played backwards and then mimic exactly what they hear. Their recording will then flip and play forwards allowing them to hear and guess your original word! You'll need a keen ear and quick tongue to be a master at this game.

You can play with distant friends using Game Center or free play passing the device between friends.

Good luck!

Fun stuff! Needs text or messenger compatibility.

4 stars because it's a really fun game. I would give it 5 if they gave this app the ability to play over text or messenger. Fun still!

Can’t hear a thing

So I saw this you tuber (EventubeTV) do a backwards challenge
with this app so I wanted to try it but once I tried to listen to my recording to make sure it was the right word I couldn’t hear a thing! Then I thought “ok maybe that’s not how the game works” but when I tried to listen to my opponents word I still heard nothing even when i turned up the volume as loud as i could! So then I ended the game over and over again and even read the the instructions again but still I couldn’t hear a thing! But idk if it the app or my iPad but I’ve never had this prob before so I’m %99.9 sure it not my iPad! So I was very disappointed that I couldn’t play this game! So only 2 star sorry!☹️☹️

Fun but...

I played this game in the past and LOVED it. But I got busy, didn't have time to play, & deleted it. I just redownload bc I wanted to share with a friend. He downloaded it as well. HOWEVER, NEITHER of us can create matches. It only allows pass n play. ☹️. Very disappointed. Please let me know if this changes.
