What’s New

Version 5.19.0

Hello welders!

This version of W.E.L.D.E.R. will soon (not yet!) be shutting down. We have built a migration tool to save all your game data and load it up on the new version of W.E.L.D.E.R. so you can have a seamless transition.

Sometime before the end of March you will receive a notification in the app to start migrating your data. This update has some bug fixes and behind-the-scenes improvements to help with the migration process.

Thanks being a W.E.L.D.E.R. player - we will see on the other side!

I’ve had this word game for more than a year and completed all levels once. About to do it I hope for a second time. This game is captivating, genius, lots of fun and very challenging. The biggest challenge is to determine a necessary strategy to succeed as you go up in level. Fantastic feature is never losing your current position in a game even when closing the app or updating the app. This has been great while on the airplane or if you need to wait on something. I find time passes quickly and at night I definitely force myself to put this game away or I'll be up too late. It is amazing to see words that you would never thought were legit. You can access any word made during the game and at any completed level to learn its definition. I highly recommend this word game- an excellent creation.

Oh, what could be!

This is a game with an almost infinite range of possibilities and one with great graphics as well as many engaging features. It also has a couple of glaring faults. The worst of those faults is its dictionary. That dictionary includes many 'words' that really are not words at all, just strings of letters that have appeared on line in the postings of careless typists and sloppy editors. On the other side of that dictionary coin are the many real words - ones that appear in standard dictionaries - that are not part of the Welder dictionary. The second major flaw of this game is not one of design but one of administration. The developers have allowed the game to be hijacked by a fairly large community of cheaters. While it is probably not practical to police the game so intensively as to stop the cheating, it would seem easy enough to identify and label the cheaters as such.

Thanks for the feedback. You can always request new words be added by using the word lookup feature. Swipe up on the gauges area below the board and a pop-up will open where you can look up a word and see if it's in the dictionary. If not, you can choose the option to email us the word to consider adding it. We are doing a new update soon where the dictionary will get some new words from this list.

If you have words you think should not be included, first tap the word in the word tube to see it's definition. We have tried to remove most arcane words, but some slip in. You can also choose to look the word up on which is a great resource. If you still find that a word is too ridiculous to be in WELDER, please send us an email by going to Help > Contact Support from the main menu.

Regarding cheaters, please email us in support and we will investigate. Thanks!

Best Word Game on AppStore

WELDER, a game I initially happened upon years ago, is the best word game I’ve played for my IPad. Whereas so many other word games feel like either clones of some other game or just so extremely simple you wonder if it’s a word game or just a vehicle to show people adds for other games. WELDER is actually challenging and fun. It’s no wonder it’s the game I’ve had on my iPad the longest and one that I always end up coming back to when I’m in the mood to play a good word game. The asynchronous multiplayer is a ton of fun and so are the multiple single player modes.
For word game fans that don’t mind a challenge I can’t recommend WELDER high enough.
