Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that WordsWorth is a word puzzle game in the same vein as Bookworm. Players must scour a random assortment of 36 letters and find words using letters that are adjacent to each other. It's a good tool for players to learn new words, but the game's online mode does allow players to compete against strangers and chat with them in real time. The game can be played in timed or untimed modes (with the latter providing a lot less stress).

QUALITY

Not since Bookworm has a word puzzle game been this engrossing. WordsWorth is less cartoony than the PopCap Games classic, but offers more diversity and (seemingly) a deeper vocabulary. Single player is fun, but the ability to play competitively with other players -- via WiFi, Bluetooth, or 99 Games' own online community -- adds another layer of fun.
