This player vs player word game is a brand-new experience that will push your vocabulary to its limits. Search the board and form words in this witty word game by tapping the letters.

Protect your base while advancing toward your opponent’s by claiming as many letters on the board as possible. Don’t let your opponent get too close! One word spelled with one of the letters in your base, and you lose!

Customer Reviews

Completely ruined

The new update completely ruined the game! You get notifications about moves but it doesn't show up in the game!

When you switch back to the app it still shows the old state. I tried to pull down to refresh, but it doesn't always work, even after quitting the app and relaunching it still doesn't show the new moves. The same with chats, sometimes the never show up in the app, only in the Notification Center.

To whoever is reading this: Wordbase is an awesome app, but it's riddled with bugs. Until they fix it, don't download this app. It needs a major rewrite.

Mentally challenged indicator app

This app definitely identified my mental handicap in a timely fashion. As an added plus, it exploited this glaring disability for the enjoyment of others. I rest much better at night, after hours of losing games, knowing that someone is happy as a result.

Awesome but…

I love word base! You can play against friends and family or with random people. You can also chat with your opponent. It's such a fun, challenging, and an addicting game. Then again, I sometimes will try to submit a word but it says it's not a word but it really is a word…
