***** (5/5) "Word Wow is an explosion of thought-provoking, perplexing, and thrilling fun for almost all ages." - AppAdvice

Word Wow is a word game where you make words to dig deeper into the ground. As you dig down, Worm will follow until you can guide him to the bottom before time runs out. You need to be able to make words quickly to string together bonuses, as well as just to clear the path.

If you find Worm to be stuck and you can't come up with any words, you can use a bomb to clear some of the tiles. You have a limited number of bombs, but you can earn more as you make more words. As Worm moves down the board, more letters become available.

Some levels have a hidden gem behind one of the tiles, and if you can find all the gems in all the levels of a world, a bonus level is opened where you can really rack up the points!

The bigger the words that you can make the more points you'll earn. Try and make enough points each level to earn all three stars.

Word Wow will sharpen your brain as well as your reflexes. Help a worm out!

May never sleep again

I came upon Word Wow while searching for a substitute for BookWorm that apparently is no longer supported. Word Wow is really a blast. Cute, addictive, much more interesting, and challenging with fun bits like gathering bombs and jewels. There are times when I prefer a more calming, mindless game like BookWorm where you are not trying to beat the clock. So be it. Word Worm is my new #1 in word games. I’ll try the other versions as well.
