Clockwords: Prelude

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.

This game is supeb. I love the mix of being able to use your own knowledge with the letters given. I have played this game longer than any other game in recent history. The gameplay is challenging but not too much so and this game lats you play for hours on end. A 5 in my book and another game on my very short list of favorites! :)

Super game.

It has an original idea, it's a very interesting puzzler that can help you expand your knowledge and it's fun to boot. What more can you want. It's true that there are some words that cannot be typed, but that isn't a big problem in my opinion, especially since they were mostly short words. I understand if the longer words couldn't be typed - that would be a problem, but it is perfect the way it is. Oh, and I loved the comic-cutscenes too ^_^

This makes me want to read a dictionary.

snsnd I think I'm in love with you and your style. This game is amazing, completely different from some of the word games I've played before. It doesn't just get you thinking, you want to think and defeat. Thank you for spending so much time creating it. I really can't say enough about how awesome it is.
