If you enjoy word games but have grown weary of jumbled word and anagram games, then Word Cracker may be the game for you. Instead of rearranging letters or making multiple words out of the same group of letters, Word Cracker presents words a bit differently. With each word given, only the consonants are provided – you fill in the vowels to complete the word. It sounds easy, but some words are tricky to make out without the vowels. Word Cracker challenges players word recognition and spelling skills and offers two modes of play – both with a few variations.
Players can choose to play timed or infinite games and play either alone or compete against a friend for the highest score. Three difficulty levels are included – easy, hard or random – to adjust gameplay to varying skill levels. All five vowels (Y is not one in this case) are always available and players drag the selected vowel into position in the word and tap submit when the word is believed to be correct. You score points based on the difficulty of the word and lose points when you pass on a word. (more...)
