Pretty close, definitely enjoyable!

I miss Bookworm so much and I was super excited to finally find a game that’s almost the same. I enjoy playing this game a lot. Just a few things I’ve noticed so far: my bonus word is “SUQ” but there are only “Qu” tiles so it looks like I’ll never get the bonus word. I wish the letter was just Q. Plus there are other words that have Q in them without U right after. Secondly, I liked in bookworm how you could tap the last letter of the word you created to submit it, rather than having to hit submit at the top. My last note is that I just miss our little worm friend. But I’m sure that’s a copyright issue. :) Overall, awesome game!

Thank you for the review. Good catch with the bonus word. I will change the Qu to just Q to fix this in the next update.

This is the closest to Bookworm that I’ve tried so far. It’s not bad. Really wish we didn’t have to hit “submit” at the top of the screen for ever word. It would be nice if we could drag and release to submit...

Thanks for your review. This game was heavily inspired by Bookworm, a game I played a lot back in the day. I will take your suggestion under consideration for a future update.

Love this game

This game is great and I sometimes play it for hours at a time (it can get addictive). I like word games but I haven’t found many like this. I like being able to search for as many words as you want (unlike word search games). There’s a good amount of strategy involved to align letters to make longer words, which is a fun challenge. The texting abbreviations category is fun too. Oh and no ads which is awesome.
