Word Hookup -
Would you like to help letters hookup? In Word Hookup, you gotta hook-up letters so as to make words. Get the latest word game that everyone is playing! Featured as "Game of the Day" and in "5 New games we love" by Apple!
Like the billion word puzzle games in the app store, this game is also about finding the hidden words on the puzzle board. Yet it's sooooo different. This word search puzzler adds another dimension with a path finding requirement to hookup the letters. This changes everything, because now letters are not next to each other and the player really has to map the letters mentally to form the words. Why don’t you watch the app preview to get an idea!
The game has some great features like beautiful background artwork to provide hints to the puzzle theme, changeable key sound effects, earn stars by finding other words etc.
It has a simple beginning, easing you into the game mechanics, but the difficulty level slowly increases as the levels progress. This ensures that the user, once settled into the game's rhythm, maintains interest.
HOW TO PLAY:
- Start from a letter and Swipe up, down, left or right to hookup letters in correct order to make words
- To solve the puzzle, all squares of the board must be covered by the path(s).
- The background provides you a clue to the theme for the puzzle words. A plain background means there is no theme for the puzzle!”
- Earn STARS by Hooking-up other valid words. These words may be of any length and need not be from current theme!
- Every level is solvable, but you can get stuck if one of the paths you made blocks out some squares. Just use the RESET button if you get stuck.
- HINTS are available to help you solve the trickier levels!
- Free to play
- You are solving three fun puzzles - deduce the theme for the puzzle from the background, find the hidden words, connect the letters with a path that covers the entire board!
- Simple, easy rules - swipe and connect!
- No time limit, adjust your pace at any level
- Play offline! No Internet required
- Change sound effects between piano and guitar!
This puzzle game starts easy but starts to get challenging very quickly! Train your brain, and expand your vocabulary, improve your spelling, and have fun with this addictive word game! If you like word games, crosswords, scrambled or jumbled word games, word search or any other type of word game, you will enjoy word hookup.
I am a non-techie mom of 3 kids, and came up with this game while helping my kids with vocabulary. Developing this game has been a family affair, with everyone contributing their bit. My 14yr old daughter created the graphics for the game. I have 10 year old twins who helped me with compiling the word lists, and with testing. Hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it! Please send us your feedback through our website to the Feedback button in the Settings dialog.
Thank you for continuing to play Word Hookup. Four new levels have been added!!

Worth a download? Probably
Okay. I freely admit I am a word snob, a grammar nazi, a devoted worshipper of letters, spaces, and marks on a page. I call it an eccentricity; others call it a personality disorder. Potato, patato. I gave this 5 stars on the first night, but then I got to know it better and the magic wore off. This game has no mercy. I mean, the word "mercy" is not a real word according to the game dictionary. There is also no "pith." And while it admits there is such a word as "professor," it will not allow you to "profess." Strange, huh? These are just a few examples. I get that folks might not want to hook up with every word they meet, but here the dictionary appears to be a random selection of random words. I really like the game concept and the potential for strategy, but it needs a more respectable vocabulary. The puzzles are fun for an occasional hookup, but this not the kind of game you take home to meet the parents.
Not So Sure...
I love this game, BUT I am not earning any coins as I go along in the game... the only way I can figure out to get more stars for hints is to buy them. Another thing that I find confusing is that the stars I earn for finding extra words do absolutely nothing for me in the game—I don’t get coins or anything else as a result of finding these extra words and it doesn’t matter if I find all of the selected extra words or just find some.
Otherwise, the game play is great, but it can be pretty difficult, as one could imagine, with letters that look so random, especially when they are long or there are two words, as with the scout level. Because I cannot get coins to use for hints without spending money, I end up having to cheat. which is undesirable, but necessary in order to move along in the game.
Also, I see the update says I can send feedback from the settings on the game menu, but I cannot seem to find the settings in the game. Please help if I’m missing something or not noticing a solution to the issues I am having and I will update my review. Thank you!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your detailed feedback. We are adding in more ways to earn coins. An update to the game has gone live today that lets you earn coins daily through a daily reward box. A daily puzzle is coming soon, that would again let you earn coins. The settings button is on the game main menu, above the levels button and looks like a gear icon. We welcome you to send any feedback through that.
Good but limited. Looking forward to more puzzles
Good and clever game. I can’t say anything about the latest update because I just finished the game without it. I thought each puzzle was fair, though especially the non-themed puzzles were trickier than the themed puzzles since you could easily identify which words were right once you found them.
My only complaint and I’d happily change the score to a five, is that it didn’t take too long to finish the levels, so I’m sad there’s not any more. That being said I’m glad that while I definitely got stumped multiple times, after putting it down and coming back I’d always eventually figure it out and I never thought the solutions were unfair. Nothing too obscure or unknown.
