Word games have grained a lot of popularity recently, especially on the mobile platform. They are easy to play and provide a great way for nourishing your vocabulary. Words games surely are fun and can help even your kids in learning new words. If this genre fascinates you to the extreme, then you might want to try games like Words With Friends or our previously covered Scramble With Friends. But if you’ve already gone through those and looking for another word game to quench your thirst then give Word Stack a shot. Developed by Mochbits for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, the game lets you solve a number of different puzzles by sequentially matching word blocks and stacking them over one another. The words can be synonyms, antonyms, compound words and/or may have some other relation. What the player needs to do is intertwine the words in the best possible combination. Read on for an in-depth review of this awesome puzzler.
Word Stack sports five different stack packs (General, Common, Ordinary, Usual and Familiar). Each pack contains 40 unique puzzles (yeah, more than enough to keep you busy for a long time), and you can instantly jump onto any puzzle you want. When you start the game, you’re given a word block with eight more blocks stacked on the left side of the screen. You need to choose and drag each block over the other so a perfect word association is created. As mentioned earlier, words can be synonyms, antonyms or any other combination. A perfect match is highlighted green, but at times, there are more words that have the same meaning or relation, so its up to the user to decide which block makes the best association.
Players can re-stack the blocks as many times as they want, or completely start over by pressing the reset button.
Talking about the presentation, the game has a well crafted and clean menu design. The calm background music is satisfying enough and fits well to the overall theme of the game.
Conclusively, Word Stack is one of the best word games available on the iOS platform. There are 200 levels in total, that sound quite a a lot for killing some serious time. And last but the not the least, each puzzle requires some brainpower to solve (in case you’re not using a dictionary of course).
