***** (5/5) "Word Wow is an explosion of thought-provoking, perplexing, and thrilling fun for almost all ages." - AppAdvice

Word Wow is a word game where you make words to dig deeper into the ground. As you dig down, the worm will follow until you can guide him to the bottom before time runs out. You need to be able to make words quickly (although a no-timer mode is available) to string together bonuses, as well as just to clear the path.

If you find the worm to be stuck and you can't come up with any words, you can use a bomb to clear some of the tiles. You have a limited number of bombs, but you can earn more as you make more words. As the worm moves down the board, more letters become available.

Each level has at least 1 hidden gem, and if you can find all the gems in all the levels of a world, a bonus level is opened where you can really rack up the points!

The bigger the words that you can make the more points you'll earn. Try and make enough points each level to earn all three stars.

Word Wow will sharpen your brain as well as your reflexes. Help a worm out!

* 140,000 word dictionary
* Fast action with the timer or relaxed mode without it
* More than 395+ Levels and 18 distinct worlds
* Bonus level for each world when you collect all the gems
* Lots of replay value as you see your ranking against all other players globally

Great concept, moderate delivery

This game is positively addicting. The timer transforms this game from an elementary word search into a strategy game. The higher your level, the longer the screen gets. The longer the screen, the more you’re forced to concentrate on the directness of the paths you make. You also have to plan ahead for the use of future vowels, which are not always in abundance.

I give it four stars because the game’s vocabulary isn’t great. Strangely, it recognizes crass terms for parts of the female anatomy, but, won’t accept the word “winsome.” It accepts three letter words only found in cross-words, but not “Caucasian.” A minor complaint, but, a frustration.

Great Game!

This was my introduction to Word Wow and I enjoyed it so much I completed all the levels and then searched for another version. Now I’ve been playing Word Wow Countries for weeks and had forgotten how simple this version is! Almost boring in comparison. Funny how perspective changes. I still think it’s fabulous though and probably good to start with this one before playing the more complicated version, especially if you don’t play a lot of video games, like me. But in some ways the country version is easier, like the stars and gems are easier to see. Thanks for such great games!

Love this game but....

I have played all the different versions you have and I really enjoy them. The only reason I cannot give it a 5 is because I stopped playing due to the fact that if I did not have time to finish a game I would lose it. I would press pause and then later when I tried to pick up where I was my game was lost. I like to play on breaks at work or breaks at home. But being a mom I have many interruptions. I would play again if I was able to pause it and save for later. I admit I have not tried in a couple months. Maybe this issue has been fixed. I hope because they are really fun games.
