• Want classic Word Jewels word-finding, that's even better? Try Classic Mode!

• Do you love making it to high levels, but get frustrated when you get snookered by a Z in the corner and have to start over? Try Endless Mode!

• Want a super-hard challenge that's not for the faint of heart? Try Challenge Mode!

• Got ten minutes? Try Rally Mode to play ten levels of patterned jewels that are just like the multiplayer game Word Rally, but solo!

I ADORE WORD JEWELS 2 & play it several times EVERY DAY!!! The EASE OF PLAY makes it a dream! NO HASSLES!!! It never crashes. I can stop at any point in any game & come back later & it is ALWAYS gonna be right the way I left it.....ready to continue on! Great stress reliever for 5 minutes playtime or an hour! It helps keep my mind sharp, while also fun! The rewards & praise prompts are also a very nice touch. I do play with the sound muted, but still see the stars & encouraging phrases when I complete a section. I recommend WORD JEWEL 2 to everyone I meet that's into NON-mind numbing games. The developers of this game are far & away my favorite game developers of all. Any game they have created has been really nice to play, with ease for users very well thought out & incorporated into the game play. I enjoy all of their games I've played, but WORD JEWELS 2 is my daily addiction. Another nicety is that if you send a question or need help with one of their games, you will get a response from the actual game developer, not a hired hand. I'm all into Mom & Pop enterprises vs corporate machines. So give 'em a try. BOY HOWDY is a delight in my book!

Terrific but could be tweaked

This is my favorite word game, and I've tried lots of them. I'm amazed at the obscure words that often materialize when I'm just hopping around on letters. Sometimes, though, when I'm going for a longer word I feel cheated when a shorter
word pops up - for example: I want "skiing" and I only get credit for "ski" because that's a legit word in itself. I'd prefer to have to click a key to record the word I really want so I could try a series of letters without committing myself to the first word that may appear.
I'm not sure I'm expressing this mild "complaint" clearly but sometimes a potentially
really impressive word is pruned down to a very simple word. But it obviously isn't a big problem because I've been playing the endless version for well over a year. Hats off to Howdy Games!


Absolutely addictive! I can play for hours. In fact, I have played over 750 games in almost a month. No two games are alike. Started out finding only three letter words. Just last night I got a NINE letter word. The more the letters, the more the points. Less common words also get lots of points. Games like this help your mental processes which is good to delay senility. At 60 I want to delay that as long as possible.
