Make Words or Die! is a word anagram scramble game with a colorful indie art style. It rewards vocabulary and speed, as every word made helps to keep back the approaching horde of Moldies!

• Story mode 50 levels
• Endless survival mode
• 4 difficulties for all ages and ability
• Challenge and Boss levels
• Leaderboards
• 150,000+ word dictionary means great replayability

You play as Chao the janitor, who, along with his sidekick, the Italian cappuccino machine Mr. Ernesto, try to save the world from the terrible Moldies. Stop these dastardly things by guessing passwords to the installation's weapon systems! Bigger words equal bigger weapons that do more damage, or play many smaller words quickly to keep the Moldies from the barrier. Mr. Ernesto is not just a pretty cappuccino machine, so expect upgrades, advice, and of course plenty of good Italian coffee.

Very Fun!

I've only played the "fun" levels and not the "challenge" ones yet, but this game is very addictive and fun. Easy to learn, no glitches so far, and no ads (which is awesome)! Really gets your brain working without being impossibly hard. Only critique I'd probably have is the writing in the story. It's not very good, but it's easy to forgive that since the game is so fun.

Excellent game. And fun

A very challenging game that demands that you think quickly and creatively. If you don't get enough words in time then you get eaten by Zombie-like creatures. Some of the creatures are quite disturbing. But it makes the game more fun.

Add more words!

I started with challenge mode and that gets hard around level 8. While playing, I spell out words that really are words but get denied. I find this frustrating. Beside this, I do like the game, it's simplicity and the addiction to getting a flawless play at the end of each level🙃.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. Adding an expanded word list is on our roadmap for the next update.
