Customer Reviews

Bummer - no longer supports 32bit OS

I just upgraded to this latest version without realizing that it does NOT support older 32bit OS and now I am W.E.L.D.E.R.-less. :-( Have contacted support several times to see if there is a way to back level or download an old version with no response. Love the game, but hate that I can no longer enjoy it or get help from the developer.

Word Welder

Thanks for the fix to allow us to use with OS maverick. I missed you. I do wish the the levels 8,9, and 10 (which is as high as I have gone) did not have so many hot tiles and consanats so I cannot readily use the reverse, group options. I always have them left at the end of the game and think that shows a disproportion. Thanks for the fun game.

Awesome Game

The game is fun and educational. I really love this game. It makes you think and strategize. Just like chess, you have to think a few moves ahead to maximize your score.
