Not what I was hoping for...

Meagan Knitt, Amazon

  • Summary: When I read descriptions from other websites, I purchased this product hoping that it would include the classic version AND a version of the Bookworm Adventures series. Instead it was just a remodeled and jazzed-up version of the classic game. Not to say that that's a bad thing, it does make it interesting, but it wasn't what I had hoped for.

Fun But Overpriced

  • Summary: Book Worm is a basic and fun word game for Nintendo DS. If the DS is your only gaming system then it might be worth a look. However, if you can play games on a smartphone or other portable device, there are dozens of titles that are more fun and a lot cheaper (only a few dollars or in some cases free). As for the game itself, the controls are fine and it's easy to play. If word games are your thing then give it a shot.

Spell "Fun" and "Flawed"

  • Summary: Don't get me wrong: this game is addictive. Just trying to find words is engrossing enough, but then there's the added challenge of trying to find words that are in the books. Add to that the fire tiles, word of the day, and bonus words, and you get a word puzzle game that has it all. Even the little worm that greets you is cute and likeable.

Good puzzle game, but harsh penalty system may be off-putting

  • Summary: From PopCap Games, makers of the fun and addictive Zuma and Plants vs Zombies, comes Bookworm, another challenging puzzle game for casual players. It's a good way to work your brain as well as make the time go faster on commutes, while waiting at the doctor's office, or exercising on the treadmill. The idea is simple. The goal is to string together tiles to form words of 3 letters or more. The longer the word, the bigger the score.

  • Summary: Have really enjoyed this game, nice and simple a typical word puzzle. Not in the same league as scrabble but good never the less.

Quite boring!

K. M. Hicks, amazon.co.uk
9 November 2011
  • Summary: I love word games but I find this one quite boring and uninteresting. Not a lot happens, it isn't very challenging and I'm not sure what the point of the game is. There don't appear to be any specific goals which makes it difficult to stay involved.

OK

  • Summary: This game is ok, but it doesn't have much variety. It could have done with a few more variations on the theme. I would say it's only worth buying if you can get it for a few quid. I recommend Puzzler World if you want wordy games with more variety.

From a puzzle nut ...

Bengz "B16 Reader", Amazon

  • Summary: I first got to play this game while on a flight across the Pacific - an on-board game! I liked it then I am hooked now! The reason it only got 3 stars is because I am a scrabble player and I noted a couple of everyday words that are not accepted by the game. I am not even going to those mind-boggling scrabble-acceptable words!
