WORD BOOM is the next addicting word game where a ticking bomb is the enemy and your brain is the weapon. Play too slow and you'll EXPLODE!
In this game, you'll try to create words, but WATCH OUT because when you least expect it, a bomb could be coming your way to destroy your progress!
Powers ups and boomer will affect your game play at every level. A power up can get you double or triple points but the boomers can speed up the bomb fuse or even flip your touches so that left is right and right is left.
Word Boom is simple to understand and may seem easy, but don't underestimate the ferocity of a badly timed boomer!
★★★ SINGLE PLAYER MODE ★★★
You are given a set of seven letters that you must use to create words and fill up the empty word blocks in order to advance.
Filling up the entire board is not required, but keep an eye on your "letters left" counter. If the counter does not reach 0 by the time your bomb goes off you will not advance.
You can SHAKE your device to scramble your letters.
NOW STOP READING AND START PLAYING!

Ratings and Reviews
Great concept could be better
I really love the concept but the dictionary of acceptable words is just plain odd & I'm not thrilled with many of the spin results. I think the timer is enough of a challenger without needing to do things backwards or loose words when they are bombed away. I'm also not thrilled with the incessant pop up add to download other apps from the developer.
Needs some work
Great fun and good practice for other word games, but there are bugs. Game closes when I leave sometimes; need buttons to scramble (can't always shake) and pause (can't always finish). And what jacked up dictionary is used? It wouldn't take RAPTOR...really??
Too many errors
Still too many simple words missing, like Latin, and strange pseudo -words included. I love word games but have finally given up on this one. Earlier versions seemed better even though the dictionary was still limited.
