Word Star


A fun game of creating words from a jumble of letters. Requires quick thinking and mental agility. Play single player or best of 3 rounds against the computer.

To play online matches against other players, download the Android version to your phone!

Spell words by typing the letters then hitting the + button. If you make a mistake, tap the < button to delete the last letter typed.

Words must be of 3 or more letters. Proper nouns are not allowed. The standard scoring for words is:
  3 letters : 10 points
  4 letters : 20 points
  5 letters : 30 points
  6 letters : 50 points
  7 letters : 70 points
  8 letters : 100 points

There are 5 ways to play:

Most Words - find as many words as you can from the same jumble of letters. More points are awarded for longer words. The letters are an anagram of an eight-letter word. If you can find the eight-letter word, 100 points are awarded. In two player mode, if both players find the same word, only the player who find it in the shortest time scores. There is also a small bonus for finding the first word in the shortest time.

Longest Word - Find the longest word you can from the jumble of letters. You can enter more than one word, but only the longest will count towards your score. In two player mode, the player finding the longest word scores an additional 100 points.

Word Scramble - Find words as quickly as you can, but each time you find a word, all the letters will be replaced. If you are given a poor selection of letters, you can replace them by tapping on the ~ button, but this costs a 50 point penalty.

Word Chain - In two player mode, the players take turns to find words. Each letter used is replaced by a random new letter, and play passes to the next player. Each player has a separate clock - whichever player runs out of time first endures a 50 point penalty. In single player mode, letters are replaced when used but play continues with the same player.

Reveal Word - Similar to "Hangman", the aim is to reveal the hidden word by guessing letters. In two player mode, the players take turns to guess, but if you guess correctly you take another turn. In a player runs out of time, all remaining hidden letters are awarded to his opponent. In single player mode, try to guess the word with as few guesses as possible. More points are awarded for correctly guessing rarer letters, points deducted for incorrect guesses.

More time on WORD STAR Thanks for these FABULOUS games. Please -- is there a way to adjust for more time allowance? This would give one some time to puzzle a bit over the answers when playing alone. Thanks again! LOVE these games!

Thanks for your message. The problem with allowing a different amount of time is that there needs to be a level playing field for the high score tables. Maybe there could be an option to have longer time but not save the score. I will think about how this could work and maybe add in the future.
