BackWords Game is a fun and entertaining game of guessing words in reverse. Choose a word and send the recording to your friend. Your friend will hear your word played backwards and then mimic exactly what they hear. Their recording will then flip and play forwards allowing them to hear and guess your original word! You'll need a keen ear and quick tongue to be a master at this game.

You can play with distant friends using Game Center or free play passing the device between friends.

Good luck!

Fun but...

I played this game in the past and LOVED it. But I got busy, didn't have time to play, & deleted it. I just redownload bc I wanted to share with a friend. He downloaded it as well. HOWEVER, NEITHER of us can create matches. It only allows pass n play. ☹️. Very disappointed. Please let me know if this changes.

Fun game

We have really enjoyed it so far. None of the issues some have complained of. Playing with the family tonight.


Fun stuff! Needs text or messenger compatibility.

4 stars because it's a really fun game. I would give it 5 if they gave this app the ability to play over text or messenger. Fun still!
