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.

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.

What happened?

I’ve played this game for years and always loved it but now it seems like it has been made harder to score, and the top levels start out with no reverse or group swaps, but guess what? You can buy your way out of a tough spot! I’m constantly being urged to purchase Gigawatts to stay in the game. It’s not worth it for a finale that has always been anticlimactic to say the least. Feels like it’s less of a vocabulary game now and more of just a way for the developers to make $$. Feel like I’ve lost a friend but I’m pretty much done with this.
