Word games lovers will have a blast with this one. After reaching great success on iOS, Hooked on Words hits Android with same expectations. I'm pretty sure they will achieve it since what we're a reviewing here is an addictive, challenging and highly playable game.
Select and slide your finger across letters the letters to form words horizontally, diagonally, backwards or with a combined direction. Forming 4 letters words or more will get you special tiles. Use them to create bonus words and score higher.
There are 4 different game modes. "Standard", complete levels at your pace trying to clear the level of tiles to get the highest score. "Timed mode" make as many words as you can in two minutes. "Collapse", after a few seconds more tiles will be added to your amount: clear them before the next load. Finally, "Scramble" make as many words as you can with the given tiles (they won't disappear after forming a word).
What makes the game so challenging is that you compete against real users from around the World thanks to online scoreboards provided by Swarm. You can also submit your scores on your social network.
Well-designed, addictive and challenging puzzle game. Highly recommendable.Tags: hooked on words, how to play expert mode on hooked on words, why does hooked on words game keep asking to log in.
