PopCap Games has announced the launch of a new puzzle title called Bookworm.
Originally released online and on PCs, Bookworm is a puzzle game where players must build words from tiles on a grid. Words can be selected via the d-pad/cursor, triple-tap, or predictive text entry, which is exclusive to mobile phones. Longer words grant bonuses as well as special power-up tiles.
“Bookworm is very well suited for mobile phones because it can be played in short bursts of a minute or two whenever and wherever the opportunity arises,” said Andrew Stein, director of mobile business development at PopCap. “At the same time, the game also offers a great challenge for marathon word-builders since itâ€™s essentially infinite in its replayability.”
The game is available now throughout North America and the UK.
