Hooked on Words
Hooked on Words by Plasmaworks LLC is a word gaming app that offers four different game modes including: standard, timed, collapse and scramble. This word game app is rare not because it’s free to download, but because there are absolutely no coins to buy or gameplay that pushes you to make in-app purchases! I love that. It’s just a cheap and safe game with plenty to offer! There is one in-app purchase you can make, and it’s to remove the ads. It costs $0.99, and is worth every penny, because the ads are pretty lengthy! I think it’s thoughtful that you have a choice to play the game for free with the ads, along with a cheap choice to get rid of them!
The timed-mode is my favorite! I get a rush trying to beat my last score. Hooked on Words’ timed-mode gives you two minutes to find as many words as you can. With each word you find, you’re given points. Your points are tallied up at the end giving you a score to try and beat next time! Trying to beat my high score is always a challenge for me.
Hooked on Words does offer a tutorial that includes six lessons that show you all the ways you can select the letters you want to use to make a word! You can slide from left to right or right to left. You can even form words diagonally. If you find a word that is four or more letters, you earn special tiles. There is a bonus word, and if you find it, you can create super tiles! Hooked on Words can keep any word game lover entertained for hours! The set up is great offering the free and paid mode! If you love cheap word games with twists that keep the challenges coming, try out Hooked on Words! You have four different modes to check out! Although, the timed-mode is my favorite, I love collapse and scramble, too! Sometimes, they just bring me too much of a challenge!
