Two specific names come to mind when one thinks of word games: Scrabble and Words With Friends. With two powerhouse word game apps firmly ensconced on the iPhone (as well as other iOS devices), is there room for a new kid on the block?
After a few minutes with WordsWorth, it became blatantly clear that comparing it to Words With Friends is like comparing Angry Birds to Cut The Rope. Sure they’re both physics games but they play completely differently from one another. Ditto for comparing WordsWorth with Words with Friends. They’re both word games but that’s where it stops. With WordsWorth the letter tiles are already spread out in a hexagon board. How you form words is by tapping on a letter and using the adjoining letters of the last chosen letter to expand the word. While this spelling method isn’t easier or harder than placing tiles, I personally found this spelling approach more enjoyable. This method allowed me to quickly and easily experiment with words before I submitted my final answer. Even if you’re a hardcore advocate of other word games, I highly recommend giving this tile variation a play. And yes there’s a free version that you can try out by Clicking Here.
It goes without saying but yet I’m saying it–multiplayer is where it’s at! WordsWorth includes the same type of turn-by-turn play found in similar games. Playing with your friends is well supported as is the option to play against a random player. But now spinning this topic the other way around–the single player blew my mind! The single player might be as infectious as the multiplayer with its different single player modes. So if you’re waiting in-between multiplayer games, play Single Player mode and you will find yourself just as entertained.
The Bottom Line: 9/10 (Super!)
WordsWorth is easily one of the best word games to ever grace my iPhone. If you’re a word junkie like myself consider yourself forewarned that you just might become addicted.
