Author Comments

Clockwords is a hectic word game set in Victorian London. You are a genius inventor who discovers plans for a mysterious machine that runs on the power of language. Then your lab is infiltrated by mechanical insects that have come to steal your secrets!

You must think and type quickly to fend off the invaders. To destroy the bugs, you need to collect powerful letters. Some letters can be combined to increase their power.

Tip: Hit 'ESC' to clear all the letters you've typed.

I'm actually learning from this! I never knew boringness was a real word! And Einstein worked too...

Quite impressive

I am always looking for unique games to play and this fits the bill well. At first I thought that since it was a prelude, it was only going to be cutscenes at first. I was of course pleasantly surprised to find that this was not the case and it was an interesting game. I liked the designs of the mechanical spiders even though they looked different in the cut scenes. Being a fast typist, I thought there would be no challenge in this. You really made it interesting by making it so that you could become stronger by using certain letters.


Summary: Great game
Review: really enjoyed it, not bad for its genre.... would give it an 8 or 9.
