Love word games? Then look no further - Astraware Word Games is the best brain-teasing pack of 5 different word games for iPhone and iPad!

Each game has a choice of difficulty levels or grid sizes and options for Classic or Timed games. All 5 games include instructions and tips on how to play. Complete the featured daily puzzle for each of the mini-games, activate delightful doodles which are drawn before your eyes as you find the right words! Compare your word power with Game Center friends and aim for the most points to top our global leaderboards!

The 5 games are:

* Shuffle - Find anagrams and make as many words as you can with the letters provided including the 5, 6 or 7 letter target word to unlock the next level. The more small words you get, the bigger your score. Use the Shuffle button to spin, twist and mix the letters up and help yourself spot more words!

* Hexxed - Make words by tracing your finger through the tiles to make a chain within the hexagonal grid! Two play modes - limited tiles or limited time. Create long, interesting or unusual words to keep your word power score up and earn more tiles or time!

* Wordsearch - Find all the listed words within the grid of letters, horizontally vertically, or diagonally! Play using the standard dictionary, or choose from over 8 special lists of themed words!

* Gridlock - Make words by tracing your fingers through the letters to make a chain. As you make words this lights up the tiles. Light up the whole grid to level up! New levels bring new board shapes and board sizes to complete, each with a different challenge. Use special tiles to boost your word power, score bonus points and help you to solve the trickiest puzzles!

* Spellmaster - Challenge your spelling skills against words of increasing difficulty. Choose the correct spelling from a choice of 4 words, 3 of which are misspelled! Easy at first, it gets more challenging as you are tested on words that you certainly don’t see every day!

The game also includes a built-in dictionary where you can check the definitions of obscure words. Access it through the Bookcase tab or by tapping on a word while you play! It will also keep a handy text scrapbook of the recent words you've seen in case you want to find out what a new word means and you can even share the definition on Facebook or Twitter!

View the bookcase full of awards to see various achievements within the game, each of which is based on a classic book, with its own custom doodle for you to see!

Great game! I like word games, they are so much more challenging than matching colored tiles! I can get lost in this game for hours. I used to play this a few years ago on Windows and was disappointed that I could not find it to work on the new tablet I had purchased at that time. Now that I have an iPad, I can play it again! And having 5 different games rolled into one app keeps me from getting bored. I did try this game over 6 months ago, but had to delete it due to a few bugs. The worst one was the game hesitating when submitting words. I thought I would give it another try and I'm glad I did. The bugs I experienced when playing before, have been resolved. Tile and word turnover are fast and smooth. Only glitch I can see is that you cannot select and open the books in the library to view special achievements. But that is the only issue I have.

Absolutely Love it but it has problems.


I LOVE this app. Had it on an old tablet and was thrilled to find it for my iPad. Sadly, it crashes after a few games and then, though it still functions, it loses some of my favorite features. Most notably the feature that lets you find out what a word means. Every time it crashes it resets itself so former accomplishments are gone. I can delete and re- download the game to restore full functionality, but it crashes again after a few games. As I am on limited data plan I cannot keep doing this over and over. If you are willing to put up with its foibles this is a great word game. I just really wish the folks who sold it to me would deem it worthy of a fix. Seems only right.

Good games but problems


Opening the program on my iPad is a chore. It acts like it is opening then just closes. I reopen it and it takes several seconds to get to the game choice screen. When I choose a game and then the level, there is another delay of several seconds. It has crashed a couple of times and given me messages about “encountering an error.” When - and if - I get to the games, it seems okay. I like the choice of games, the hardness levels, and especially the “doodles.” When it’s working correctly, it’s a great game to kill an hour or two and can be easily set down without any major problems. I hope how soon Astraware updates, as I would like to keep the program on my iPad.
