Summary

I’ve really enjoyed my time with this game. The art style is both cartoony in nature and very pleasing to the eye.

This game is now a favourite of mine to spend those rare pockets of free time during the day. It’s easy to pick up and put down and due to the nature of the game, it’s different every time you play.

There are various power-ups that permit more hitpoints per word, and each enemy has a specific trait. For example, a three-letter word may inflict little to no damage on them. There is an RPG element to this game that I really enjoy, and for me, it becomes a game within a game. You can buy items from in-game characters that increase your hitpoints or decrease the damage that you take during battle. I find that this adds an extra dimension to the humdrum game that is Scrabble.

The soundtracks are upbeat and exciting. I often find that my foot is tapping on the floor whilst I’m captivated and looking for my next word.

At first sight, this game looks to have been intended for a young audience. However, after playing the game I can say that I firmly believe that it would be a worthy purchase for players of any age. Don’t let the games cartoony nature fool you. This game can hold it’s own in the brain training arena.
