Word WarpWhat word games do you usually play? Are you familiar with Word Scramble, Jumble, Boggle, or Text Twist?  If so, it will be easy for you to play and enjoy Word Warp, especially if you like to challenge your word building and vocabulary skills. So you have your tablet or mobile device and you’ve downloaded the game, but are you ready for the Word Warp challenge?

 

What is Word Warp?

Word Warp is an anagram game that requires you to form as many words as you can from a given set of six letters within a limited time. You will be given points for every correct word you are able to guess. The catch is that you have to correctly guess at least one word that uses all six letters if you want to move on to the next level.

How to play

As mentioned, in each level, you are presented with six letters. On top of those letters are six empty circles or boxes where you can form words. The words must be at least three letters long. As you choose a letter, it goes into an empty space until you form a word. Upon formation of a word, tap or click the “Got it” button. If your word is correct, it will appear in the upper section of your screen where there are blanks that represent the words you can form. These “blanks” are grouped into their respective word lengths, so three-letter word blanks are together, four-letter words are also together, and so forth. Every time you are able to guess a word correctly, it will fill up the blanks that correspond to its number of letters.

Instead of a shuffle button such as the one in Text Twist, Word Warp has a warp button. Use this to rearrange the six letters to possibly view other words that you haven’t formed yet. Sometimes, a different order makes you see words that you were not able to see earlier. There is no limit to using the Warp button, so you can use it as many times as you want.

Another useful button is the Last button, which when used, shows you the last word you played. This is useful when the letter S is included in the six given letters – it will be easier and quicker for you to play the plural forms of nouns or the singular forms of verbs.

Time limit

Unlike other word games, Word Warp does not limit you to a certain number of minutes; YOU are the one who sets the limit for yourself. That’s right you can set the amount of time you want to find words. You can set a longer time limit to find more words or you can shorten it to challenge yourself even more. You do not have to stress yourself with finishing within the time limit you set because you can still end the game early by using the end button. Or you can stop the time and return where you left off after a while. Whether you have given up or want to continue the game at a later time, there’s no denying that this feature makes the game highly convenient and can a great deal more challenging to play.

Finishing a level

As mentioned earlier, you only complete a level if you get at least one six-letter word. Every time you finish a level, you move on to more difficult ones and gain higher scores. When playing in timed mode, once the time runs out, you will be able to view the words that you have guessed and those that you missed. You can even click on any of the words and be directed to their respective entries in an online dictionary.

Adjusting the settings

You can adjust the settings of the game by using the small letter “I” located at the upper part of the screen. You can change the game’s background and adjust the sound settings. In Word Warp Xtreme, click the settings buttons to make changes.
