I’m obsessed!

As someone who rarely plays games and quickly loses interest in most games, I had about given up on finding the game for me. With a lifelong love of Scrabble, I was excited to give Downwordly a try, and I’m so glad I did! Downwordly is a word game unlike any other I have tried. I love that it has multiple modes: Multiplayer for some friendly competition with your Game Center friends, Puzzle to solve themed puzzles, Endless to test your ability to keep your board going for as long as possible, and the Daily Challenge to try to maximize your points with each daily board. I have played Downwordly every day since I found it! Not only have I learned new words, but the longer I play, the more techniques I learn for maximizing points, strategically revealing tiles, and using shiny tiles to their full potential. Do yourself a favor and try Downwordly asap!

A simple yet challenging word game

Downwordly is a simple word game that actively challenges your abilities in projection, logic, and spelling to make for a unique user experience.

There are four different types of play styles that you can enjoy. Endless allows you to create as many words as you can with a limited number of layers that grows as you take away letters, layer by layer. Puzzle allows you to enjoy an unparalleled experience in the world of word search games. Daily Challenges allows you to test out your abilities in creating words in a similar style to the Endless game mode, while only having a set of 5 layers. These layers reset daily for an exciting challenge each and every day. Multiplayer allows you to play with friends using Game Center and mechanics similar to the Endless game mode.

In addition to a great game complete with exciting game modes, Downwordly does not collect any personally identifiable data and it does not display ads, so you can enjoy your game without being tracked or hit with an annoying pop-up ad.

Overall, a fantastic game that can easily get you addicted with its fun game modes, and its many challenging Game Center Achievements.

Thanks for the kind review AertoneFX!

My favorite word game!

Downwordly is such a clever game! It’s sort of a mix between single-player Scrabble and Mahjong.

The daily puzzle is my favorite and I play it everyday. I also enjoy endless mode and puzzle mode. Puzzle mode can be a nice challenge and endless mode is a relaxing practice of trying to remember all the helpful Scrabble words.

I highly recommend Downwordly for those who enjoy word or puzzle games!

Hi fluxicle! Thanks for the kind words. I shouldn't tell you my pro strat for the daily but....

...since the last letter of each layer is guaranteed to be shiny, I always make sure to use that to my advantage and sometimes have words with four or five shinies if I play my cards right! Some other folks have used this strategy and their superior intellect to break 1000 on the daily boards!
