By popular demand, KRAPPS will periodically review “legit” apps through a network of guest authors. Carolynn is our first guest author at KRAPPS. Her work can also be found at Andy’s Review Of iPhone Games And More and followed on Twitter @carolynn7.

Title: WordsWorth

Judging by it’s title, you would probably guess that WordsWorth is a word game. Now I’m a puzzle game freak, but my word game collection is minimal. WordsWorth will change your mind about word games. It’s brought to you by the fine folks at 99 Games Inc.

Game play is simple … trace the letters that make a word or touch each letter individually and press submit. The screen will show you as you trace if you have created a word or not (that’s great for finding those obscure words you didn’t think existed). When you’ve reached a certain score, you go to the next level. There are various helper tiles that appear during the game. There is also a red tile that is a timer. If you don’t use it before time runs out, it’s game over. Now there are two game modes, Classic and Timed. In Classic Mode, your game ends when a timer tile’s clock runs out. In Timed Mode, you have a certain amount of time to finish the level. If time runs out, well, you know what happens.

What’s great about this game is that you can customize it in many ways. You can make the board bigger, change dictionaries (they use TWL, SOWPODS, and ENABLE), adjust the minimum word size or change the background and sound effect settings. There are lots of extras – Wild tiles, Bonus Point tiles, Shuffle tiles and additional shuffles in the game to help you when you are hopelessly stuck. It also saves your current game for those times when you need to do something more important. All these features make this game very replayable. You can make it as easy or as hard as you want. I find the music very relaxing. The graphics are highly polished and you can tell a lot of work has been put into this game.

What’s not so great: of course I’d like to see a global scoreboard, because who doesn’t like to compete for the best score in the game? I’d also like to see a word list added so you can see what words you played or a best word page on the scoreboard listing highest scoring words, etc. The music is nice, but a bit repetitive. I’d like to see a variety of music added.

All in all, I rate this game 5 of 5 stars. It’s addictive, has endless replayability and will change your mind about word games. The developers are always working on updates and listen to suggestions to make WordWorth even better. If you don’t have it yet, what are you waiting for? It’s currently available in the App Store for $1.99.

    I'm totally addicted to this game..

    I'd been looking for a game similar to Bookworm ever since I bought my iPhone. I found WordsWorth via a review thanks to one of my favourite sites KRAPPS.com. I highly recommend this game if you like Scrabble and other word-constructing games. You know what, I'd recommend this game even if you don't like the aforementioned types of games. It's a great way to increase your vocabulary. It's got great “replayability”, you'll be coming back for more. I've tried a number of iPhone games, and this is one that will stay on my iPhone forever.

    Of all the really KRAPPS out there, this is an absolute GEM!

    I highly recommend this game..

    Thanks for the feedback Art and I'm sure the developers at 99 Games will love to hear this positive experience from their customer.

    As noted, we are expanding KRAPPS to include “legit” apps, so it'll be twice as fun and the best of both worlds … we can laugh at the KRAPPS, while finding gems like WordsWorth
