Well-made and fun word-search game.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that the downloadable DSi word game, BOOKWORM, does not offer a lot of variety of gameplay. There is one basic task throughout the entire game -- finding words on a board of tiles by connecting adjacent letters. However that one element is presented very well, and for the five-dollar price tag on the game, certainly provides one's money's worth. Still, parents should be aware that children averse to wordsearch-type puzzles won't be interested.

Book Worm Has A-P-P-E-A-L

GIN

  • Excerpt: Welcome to the world's most superfluous game review. I say that primarily because I'm summarizing for prospective consumers a game experience that you can sample firsthand, for free, from Pop Cap's website, and secondarily because I love any chance to use the word "superfluous" in a sentence for an audience. No, really, I just got a happy little shiver from that. This is how I know that I am precisely this game's target audience.

Bookworm (DS)

The Review Busters
22 February 2010
  • Conclusion: Bookworm is an addictive word game for your Nintendo DS. The game might have took some time to come out on the DS but the wait was well worth it. Both classic and action modes are a lot of fun on all occasions. Multiplayer is a nice little touch so you should be able to have quite some fun with this budget title from PopCap Games. Rating Breakdown Gameplay: 8 out of 10 + Learning has never been this much fun.

Bookworm

Game Revolution
15 January 2010
  • Excerpt: I suck at Scrabble. I love my word games, but for some reason I suck at Scrabble. Bookworm , for the uninitiated, is a simple concept: You're given a screen filled to the brim with letters, and you cobble words out of the madness, making sure all of the letters in the word are touching each other. That's really all there is to it.
  • Pros: Still fun after all these years, Easy to pick up and enjoy, Multiplayer is a joke, Playable for, Nothing new about it... at all

The word of the day is: get!

  • Conclusion: Bookworm is an addictive word game with an adorable host. It's been available on PC for years, but this DS version adds an exciting Action mode and an amusing (if slightly underwhelming) multiplayer feature. All the stat tracking is also nice and it will take you a while to complete all the books and build your entire house. Word game fans that've never played Bookworm should pick this one up post haste.
