***** (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!

* Fast action with the timer or relaxed mode without it
* More than 560+ Levels and 27 colorful 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

My favorite game is now on iPad!

I think that ANY “Word Wow “ game is a wonderful word game to play. You can choose to be timed or not to be timed. You can choose EASY, MEDIUM, or HARD! You have to love a game that allows its players these freedoms...I control my game. The music is comfortable, non-annoying and gentle on your ears while engrossed in creating words. The character actions are fun and there are a good number of awards. You can replay a level! Customer support answers in a timely manner....That’s a word wow, right there.....( think a sec, you’ll get it...😀) No hidden ‘play now, pay later’ features, either! Get those ‘letters out’ now! 😁😁😁😁😁🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️

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!

Glitches lately

I love this game. It actually takes some thinking, as opposed to the games where you just try to pop balloons or whatever. But lately, as soon as I start a game, the screen suddenly turns black and I’m logged off. Not always, but often enough so that I’m just gonna stay off it for a week or two. Support says this doesn’t happen on their devices, which does not help me. It Has anyone else had this happen? I would have rated it five stars if it weren’t for this glitching up lately.
