Ratings and Reviews
Fun single player word game
If you enjoy word games like Scrabble and are looking for a single player experience, there's a good chance you'll enjoy Word Snack. The customers' tastes make you think about words in new ways. Of course, I'm a biased reviewer since the students in my class were the ones who made this game from scratch in a semester!
Unexpected puzzle fun
It's obvious that a good deal of work went into this. While there are a few words that I wouldn't call words, this game is pretty solid. The characters are cute and the gameplay is surprisingly deep. I'm still figuring out the most effective character combinations and there are many strategies to try
This game is so much fun to play. It's much more complex than typical Scrabble- or Boggle-esque word games, and that's definitely part of the fun. It's not just about making the longest word; you really have to play to each character's strengths. I played it over and over on a plane yesterday and it was hard to put down. Love it!
