Word Works

EDIT: Sped up the menu and decreased the wait in between puzzles.

This is a word game that took less than a week to complete. The dictionary includes most words. Try to avoid using words in plural form or in past/future tense.

There's no music. I don't think it's necessary for a word game and I wanted to keep it under 100kb.

I love the concept, it's overall a simple and addicting game with good graphics and smooth gameplay. Keep up the good work!



The grapphics were very impressive, seems like some good amount time with this, but props to you on some very impressive graphics, and the game was actually fun very wellmade, i had lots of fun with it, so nice job on your part, hpe to see more games like this in the near future.

I would just leave it as is.

A fun game, very neat look to it but fun game indeed.


game, but the

+++ Nice gfx. Periphery (cogs, bg, etc) has a nice consisten scheme and the 3D shading on everything is pretty smart.

- Though I think the scheme is slightly boring. I'd maybe like something either unique and interesting like paper cut-outs, brushed work, whatever, or maybe just something more cartoony.

+++ After getting the hang of it, I enjoyed working out the words on the mode I was playing.

------ The menu scrolls way too slow. Seriously. Having menus scroll so slow is practically a heinous crime.

------ The letters should scroll onto the screen a bit faster, to ensure less of a gap between each puzzle.

- Though I enjoyed listening to Ani Difranco, it'd be nice to have some sfx in the game to give actions more resonance.

Looks like a good game, but the delays when waiting for the menu or the letters to scroll left a rancid taste in my mouth.

So boring...

^^Good Points^^
The graphics in this were very nicely done. Good shading and nice color scheme.

^^Needs Improving^^
This game is painful to play. The way that the menu scrolls out is grueling. It moves so slowly that I wanted to shoot myself. Then the letters scroll out and I have no fucking idea what the hell to spell. Perhaps different difficulty levels? Or atleast a faster paced game. This game just moves at a grueling pace.


Nice game but it lags
