You know you are good at words and letters but... How good are you? The only way to know it by heart is by challenging other players to beat you in word puzzles. 1303productions' WordwarX is a word game which puts your spelling and reflexes to the test.
WordWarX features four different game modes, all of them played online against other real players. In 'Thinking' you get 60 seconds to find the highest scoring word made up by the six given letters. Letters have Scrabble's scoring values. 'Thinking' is the only game mode available in the free version.
In 'Strategy' you must find a word and then stop the clock when you think you have a winner horse... or keep trying. 'Power' game challenges you to find as many words as possible in 60 seconds. Finally, in 'Speed' the winner is the first who find at least a 4 letter word.
You can check your stats and rank, edit your profile and view online leaderboards to check how other players are doing. WordWarX can't be played as a guest, so you must sign up to play it.
That's one of the points that could be enhanced. It would be nice to have the chance to try the game before registering. In addition, the game needs a deeper social layer with features like adding opponents as friends, chat and weekly tournaments.
Regardless, the game is set in minimalist yet neat and polished graphics. The different game modes and the online features make it a highly recommended game for those who don't want flip effects and animations but challenging word puzzles.
