Review – Bookworm Palm OS game from Astraware

by Reads (12,775)

Book Worm is not an easy game to describe. It’s a little bit Scrabble, a little bit Tetris, and a lot something else. This one will be a challange for adults, but might also serve as a nice pacifier for children learning to build words.

You are presented with a screen full of letters, and you must link them together to form words, which disappear, thus changing the board. Add to this things like burning letters, bonuses, and trying to create more complex and high-scoring words, and you have the idea.

It sounds simple, and it is. But it’s also challenging, in a relaxing kind of way. Book Worm is a sit-back-and-stretch-your-brain’s-legs kind of game, and it offers a great go-at-your-own-pace puzzle/strategy feel. It’s easy to play, but difficult to play well, and it inspires you to try to get that couple extra letters that make your words better.

Book Worm also features High-Res with sound for the Sony Clie, and OS5 High-Res with sound for the Tungsten|T and NX series. There is also a Pocket PC version which is virtually identical.

65K Color screen
270K free memory (Low-Res)
351K free memory (Clie)
365K free memory (OS5)

Astraware has a free demo or you may purchase for $14.95.
