Bookworm is a classic and interesting word game with similarities to Scrabble and Word searches. You must create words using the various letters on the board. There is one stipulation however – you can only join letters together that are adjacent. Keep creating new words to increase your score and try to think as quickly as possible!

Each letter has a certain score and the more letters you match in a word, the higher your score. Watch out for special green tiles – these provide a bonus score so try and use them as often as possible! There is also a special flaming red tile that you have to get rid of in a set amount of time. This game is great fun and really challenges your intellect and creative thinking!
