Summary: Pros: If you've played bookworm before it's very similar. The DS has to be held sideways (on the DS lite) the left screen gives you the bonus words etc... while the right screen is for you to create the words. Easy lay out on the eyes.
Summary: Been playing it on my sons 3DS (...I know) but its addicting. Not to mention he loves it (10yo) and its actually a good educational games I don't have to worry about. I see there is a multiplayer on there so can't wait to check it out since we havent had an opportunity yet.
Summary: I am a woman of a certain age (wink wink) and received a DS-XL for Christmas. I told everyone only puzzles or word games - no Sonic the hedgehog for me! I have never in my life played a video game, but I love word games, and thought this would keep my brain fresh.
Summary: This game had been popular on the PC for quite some time. the DS version somehow has improved upon this game. If you liked the PC version you will like this one even better. The classic game mode can last pretty long, maybe too long for a portable. it's good game overall.
Summary: Let me say first, I love Bookworm. I have it on my PC and was excited about the DS version. So much fun to play, just like the PC version. BUT, you have to play this with the DS held vertically, with the touch screen side on the right. This makes awkward play for left-handed players.
Summary: If you like the computer version, you will love this, too. The DSi makes this game portable and that makes it convenient. I have loved Bookworm since the game first came out. It's great for retirees, too!
Possibly the best word game for the Nintendo DS...for now

Summary: Book Worm--in any of its many forms--is a highly addictive word game. The game play is quite simple: you get a wall of letter tiles, and you have to connect them to make words, in a style similar to Boggle.
Summary: This is a relatively simple game, well suited for uncoordinated people like myself who lack the dexterity, eyesight and skill for playing all the action games available for the Nintendo DS and DSI.
