Word Crush is a brand new game that combines 2 game genres - block collapsing puzzle game and word search game, in which you must create words from given letters. Will you make it into TOP20 highscores?

How to play:

1) Press and hold the left mouse button and move over at least 3 neighboring symbols of the same kind in any direction to remove them. Longer chains you create, better score you get! Connect at least 8 symbols to receive extra +200 points!

2) Once you crush the blocks you will be given letters and your task is to create words from these letters in order to get the new blocks. Each word must have 3 to 10 letters. Remember, longer words give you better score!

4) To create words just tap on the letters. The game automatically recognizes if the word exists or not, if yes then the green button will appear on the right side from the created word. Press it to submit the word!

5) To erase the word just press the red button on the left side from your created word or on any already selected letters!

3) Collect various bonuses on your way (+50, +75, +100 points or "2x" that doubles the word points you create)!

I have to admit, I thought I have played all kind of word puzzle games in the WWW, but I can't recall the combination of a match-3 (or more) game with word search like this one.

And I'm kind of baffled that this mixure works in such a fluent and funny gameplay! Kudos, I'm sure I'm gonna play "Word Crush" every now and then.

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Reasonably well executed. The music is very repetitive; it'd be nice to have an option to mute *just* the music.

However the real reason for the 2.5 stars is: while you've tried to come up with a new iteration on the word connect genre, I'm just not convinced that what you've created really works as a concept. That is, I understand it, but it's far too simple. Connecting the shapes is just a simple chore, while putting letters together is trivial, since the letters can be chosen in any order (i.e., they do not need to be linked).

Don't get me wrong; I am a fan of the genre. It's just that I really believe people will find this game somewhat easy and probably a bit boring. If you want to keep the gameplay mechanics as-is, then you might consider rebranding this as a younger children's game, targeted at a younger audience. That's not meant as an insult! Good kids' spelling games are sometimes hard to find.

A "relaxed" (untimed) mode would be nice, as well.

Thank you for your comment/opinions and for 2.5*! :)

Well it would be almost impossible to create words if you would be connecting letters in a way that you connect symbols, for that you would need much much bigger board where you would have bigger groups of letters. (I tried to have it as you said and it was almost unplayable)

I will definitely keep it as it is (for casual players), but anyway thank you for your comment and ideas!
