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

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! Play the featured daily puzzle for each of the mini-games, complete them and submit your score to see how you compare against players worldwide! Aim for the most points to top our global leader-boards and to activate delightful doodles which are drawn before your eyes as you find the right words!

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 20 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 Awards 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!

Customer Reviews


you do not change anything even if suggested many times. do not use proper names, also do not highlight all words at the end of game, only those missed. the same letters come up too often and many words are often suspect. even dictionary does not list them. what is the distinction between dark lettered words and light lettered words? it is either a word or not. thanks

also I do not play the other games because the instructions are not available or clear. I am refering to the games you try to make words. with one the middle sometimes helps make a word and sometimes not. pleae just list instructions.

A lot of fun. Makes you think.

Several different word games come with the app. It is easy and fun to play. I find the Shuffle game to be particularly addicting. Definitely worth the price


I enjoy hexed, word search, and gridlock. Shuffle isn't to bad, but there are words that are used that aren't in the dictionary. Still highly recommended.
