Bookworm is a word puzzle game that allows you to show off your vocabulary skills. The game works by forming chains of letter tiles to ultimately create words. The more letters the word you create is, the higher your score will be. There are some features in the game that make creating a word more difficult. For instance, a burning tile can burn through the tiles around them and if one of them hits the bottom of the board, the game is over. If you make long words, gem tiles appear that will grant you bonus points if used.

This is a game for book lovers who love a challenge. You get a sense of achievement when you are able to spot a long word on the board. If you cannot find a word, you do have the option of making a gamble and rearranging the tiles. However, it is important to note that this will release many burning tiles that may ultimately make your situation worse because they can burn many tiles and ultimately end the game for you. It is also possible to play the game in untimed mode if you feel like being timed could put extra pressure on your game play.

Bookworm is an excellent game to play if you have pride in your vocabulary skills and would just like to have a way to pass the time. Although there isn't too much variety in Bookworm, the basics of the game will keep you coming back on a continuous basis.
