Word-A-Fall is an iPhone game developed by Just Mobile Programs. In this fast-paced word-building game, you must help the Beaver Brothers (Bo, Bob, and Bubba) to rebuild their home before winter comes!
In Word-A-Fall, you must quickly spell words made out of tiles that are made out of water, wood, and leaves. You must use these tiles before the materials are washed away by the waterfall. Only by doing this can you help the Beaver Brothers rebuild their home.
Every tile with a letter on it also has a value from between 1 and 10. The longer the word, the bigger your score. There are also 8 action tiles which allow you to boost your score. However, some of the action tiles have negative consequences, such as blinding you or bombing the field of play.
Word-A-Fall features three different game modes to keep things interesting. There’s the classic mode, where you play a simple, two-minute timed round and try to get the highest score possible. There’s also the wordsmith game mode, where you need to make words that are at least four letters long.
Finally, there is the Rushing Rapids game mode. In this mode, the tiles fall faster with every word you submit. This is arguably the most stressful level, but also the most fun.
Overall, the game has a very simple, accessible interface. Each of the game modes features clear, engaging graphics, and the total package is a must-play for anyone who loves word games. Best of all, the framing device of the Beaver Brothers and their quest for a new home helps to make the game feel more directed and addictive.
Word-A-Fall is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 6.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
