Overview

This application is recommended for ages 7+.

Love word games? Then look no further - Astraware Word Games is the best brain-teasing pack of 5 different word games!

Each game has a choice of difficulty levels or grid sizes and options for Classic or Timed games. All 5 games include instructions and tips on how to play! Play the featured daily puzzle for each of the mini-games, complete them and submit your score to see how you compare against players worldwide*! Aim for the most points to top our global leader-boards and to activate delightful doodles which are drawn before your eyes as you find the right words!

The 5 games are:

SHUFFLE - Find anagrams and make as many words as you can with the letters provided including the 5, 6 or 7 letter target word to unlock the next level. The more small words you get, the bigger your score. Use the Shuffle button to spin, twist and mix the letters up and help yourself spot more words!

HEXXED - Make words by tracing your finger through the tiles to make a chain within the hexagonal grid! Two play modes - limited tiles or limited time. Create long, interesting or unusual words to keep your word power score up and earn more tiles or time!

WORDSEARCH - Find all the listed words within the grid of letters, horizontally vertically, or diagonally! Play using the standard dictionary, or choose from over 20 special lists of themed words!

GRIDLOCK - Make words by tracing your fingers through the letters to make a chain. As you make words this lights up the tiles. Light up the whole grid to level up! New levels bring new board shapes and board sizes to complete, each with a different challenge. Use special tiles to boost your word power, score bonus points and help you to solve the trickiest puzzles!

SPELLMASTER - Challenge your spelling skills against words of increasing difficulty. Choose the correct spelling from a choice of 4 words, 3 of which are misspelled! Easy at first, it gets more challenging as you are tested on words that you certainly don't see every day!

View the bookcase full of awards to see all the achievements within the game, each of which is based on a classic book, with its own doodle!

Version 1.2 Increases the in-game dictionary to 150,000 words, adds many additional Wordsearch lists, adjusts the difficulty to gain some of the awards, and fixes many minor bugs and stability issues!

    Very nice, well worth the $$$ spent

    Great games and they work perfectly. Best game app I have bought on the nook so far.

    Worth the cash!

    I promise you, if you are a word game fan such as myself, you should purchase this application. I have purchased the Werdle app and it does not hold a candle to this app, there are games similar to boggle but still different enough to hold your interest and some games so different from boggle that it is impossible to turn away! Please purchase this if you enjoy word games, you will not regret it!

    Awesome game, some glitches.

    Few times the game has crashed out or caused me to have to shut off the Nook due to black screening. Also the Astraware loading screen keeps adding itself to my personal pictures.

    Would also be nice to be able to look definitions in the dictionary.
