“As a score chasing title, Word Science is one to dive into for short periods of time but it’s surprising how often one comes back for more.” -148Apps
Get ready for some spellbinding, wordsmithing fun with Word Science!
In this fast-paced spelling game, your words power Dr. Von Vocab’s crazy lab! Grab letters as they whiz by on conveyor belts and form words as fast as you can to keep Dr. Von Vocab’s experiments going… or else. Are you ready for Word Science, a new word game that only science could create?
To make the game even more interesting, Doctor Von Vocab has included some mad word technology for you to use:
BLANK TILES! Not seeing that letter you need? Put in a blank tile, which can stand in for any letter.
SPELLEMENTS! Spellemental tiles have twice as many letters on them and earn you more points.
SCORE BOOST! Green tiles offer you a straight up point bonus, because, clearly, GREEN has MORE SCIENCE.
EXTRA TIME! With the press of a button, add time to the clock. The 4th dimension is yours to control!
SCRAMBLE! With the flick of a switch, speed up all the belts in the lab for a new selection of letters to choose from.
FRIENDLY COMPETITION! Challenge your friends on Game Center and Facebook. Wow them with your words!

No challenge to be found
The tutorial starts by showing you the various power ups. I exited that stage with a very high score and it was soon clear it could only be beaten with more power ups. However, unless you intend to dump cash in, that doesn't seem to be the primary way to play the game. Depressing being unable to match your score from the tutorial.
Also, scoring is totally non-sensical: the reward for speed is so great that putting together big words feels punishing more often than not. Quickly putting in the most basic words you can is much more efficient than actually challenging yourself to do some 'word science', not so fun.
This app is a great idea poorly executed. The most annoying thing is there is no audible warning if you try to enter an invalid word. If you "fat finger" a letter you won't know it until you've overfilled the word space and by that time you may have wasted several good words, all lined up behind that one mistake. Maddening!
It would be nice if there was a special sound when you tried to enter a word that was invalid. Maybe next revision...
Like another reviewer wrote, I'm deleting this app because I can't figure out how to turn off push notifications. It is always sending me push notifications, all the time. Games are supposed to be fun to play not annoying. I haven't even played this game because every time I start to play it, it sends me a push notification. Developers, if you want your game to be played make it good to start with so people will want to play it, so you don't have to send push notifications.
