Match letters and show off your vocabulary in Bookworm

Bookworm is a word puzzle game in which you form chains of letter tiles to create words. The longer the word you create the higher your score will be. However some special tiles can make matters more complicated. Burning tiles burn their way through the tiles around them if one hits the bottom of the board the game ends. Gem tiles appear as rewards for making long words and grant bonus points if used.

An exercise in ludic sesquipedality

Bookworm is a game for word lovers one that challenges the vocabulary and the eye. Spotting an impressive word on the staggered board of tiles gives a great feeling of achievement. If you can't find a word you can gamble and rearrange the tiles but be warned: this also spawns a flood of burning tiles which can make things even worse. If you just want to mess around with some words and not have to deal with the time limit it's also possible to play in untimed mode. The charming game mascot Lex appeared in later sequels that combined word play with RPG-style battles.

Assemble optimal lexemes!

If you pride yourself on your vocabulary or just love a good word puzzle Bookworm is a great way to pass some time. It doesn't have too much variety in its gameplay but the basic premise is enough to keep you coming back.

Link letters and create words to feed the hungry, hungry Bookworm! But watch out for fiery red letters. . . they’ll burn your library down! It’s vocabulariffic!

This game is very similar to Scrabble, in that you have to link letters and create words. The bigger the word the more points you get. AS you play on and pass levels, the difficulty increases.


  • Cute character
  • Enjoyable word puzzles
