Bookworm Games List for Computer and Mobile


    1. Bookworm 1/Deluxe Game for PC

    From: PopCap Games | Genres: Word, Brain-Teaser, Puzzle.

    Essentially, there is no difference between Bookworm 1 and Bookworm Deluxe. As the gameplay in both Bookworm games are the same. Bookworm Deluxe is just a newer version of the original Bookworm game. I have included links for both versions below.

    Description: Have an appetite for words? Then join Lex the Bookworm in the hit word-puzzle game created by PopCap, makers of the best casual games this side of Jupiter! Link letter tiles left, right, up and down to build words to keep Lex sated and smiling. The bigger the word, the better the bonus. But watch out for burning letters — they could spell disaster for you and Lex! If you need a quick word break, link letters fast in Action mode. If laid-back wordplay is more your style, go with Classic. No matter which mode you like best, you’ll relax and tune up your brain every time you play! [Source: Amazon]

    How to Play

    Make words by clicking on the 1st letter tile. Then dragging your mouse to adjacent next letters to link them. When you have made a valid word, the letters disappear. And get ‘chomped’ by Lex the bookworm. And the tiles above drop down to fill the gaps. If you are stuck and want a new arrangement of letters. Click on Lex to scramble the letters. But beware, as this will mean red ‘burning’ tiles will appear. And if any of these red tiles reach the bottom of the board. Then it’s game over!
    You can play Bookworm in Classic (un-timed) or Action (timed) modes. Action mode also includes random burning tiles to add to the pressure!


    The longer the words, the more points you will score. And if you include reward tiles in your word. Then you’ll get extra points. Reward tiles include Green, Gold, Sapphire and Diamond Tiles. And reflect your word play skills. So for example, gold tiles can be earned by making words of more than 5 letters. You can also earn bonus points. By making the bonus words shown in the left-hand panel, under Lex. This sometimes requires you to strategically make other words first. In order to get the required tiles moved into the right place! Or clicking Lex to scramble the letters again.

    2. Bookworm Adventures Game for PC

    Description: Build words to help Lex the Bookworm battle monsters and save the oracle Cassandra in this wacky, wordy adventure! Use your spelling might to vanquish over 150 villains. Boost your word power with gems, potions and treasures. It’s the ultimate test of your vocab valor! [Source: Amazon]
