Wordz Mania

Game Description: Build the required number of words before time expires.

How to Play Wordz Mania:

  • The game consists of 20 levels of play.
  • In each level you need to reach a certain number of words.
  • Words with more letters are worth more points.
  • Sometimes there are bonus words. Bonus words will appear on the right side on the sign post. If you spell a bonus word you receive extra points.
  • Build words by clicking the letters on the board, one at a time, with your mouse.
  • You may build words horizontal, vertical and diagonal, but each successive letter must share a common border with the prior letter.
  • When you complete a word click the GO button (located on the left side of the board.)
  • If the word you have built is on the Wordz Mania list you will receive credit for the word. If your word is not found on the list, you will not get credit for the word, and you will have to build another word.
  • While building a word if you should make a mistake by clicking on the wrong letter, or should you simply change your mind and wish to build a different word, just click on any non-bordering square and begin building again.
  • Letters in green squares are bonus letters. You get more points for using these letters.
  • Letters in red squares have a timer. You MUST use these letters before their timer goes off or the game ends!
  • Once you have clicked a letter with an orange square, you have to use it. If you don't, you will not be able to use it again.
  • There are a few blue squares where the letters keep changing. You may also use these letters to build words.
  • When you see a square with a question mark, this means you may enter any letter you want. Click on this square while you are building your word. Then use your keyboard to enter the letter of your choice. Type your letter on the right sign post in the space indicated. Then click OK.
  • If you press a square with a hidden bomb this changes all letters on the board.
  • The game ends when you fail to advance to the next level (either by runnning out of time, or when a red square letter timer goes off) or when you complete all 20 levels.

Wordz Mania Game Options:
  • You may adjust the graphics to low, medium, or high by clicking the graphics button located at the bottom of the board.
  • The sound may be turned on or off by clicking the sound button also located at the bottom of the board.
  • If you need to take a break, click the break button to pause the game. This control is also located at the bottom of the board.

Wordz Mania Playing Tips:
  • Watch out for the red square letters! Remember, these have a timer. You MUST use these letters before their timer goes off or it's game over!
  • You may use the same word on different levels, but not on the same level.
  • Sometimes you might want to try a combination of letters that you do not think is a word. Maybe it will be on the list of acceptable words and you will luck out.
  • If you get into a really, really desperate situation and you have a lot of red square letters timing down... this is is a longshot, but if you just start clicking random letters on the board you could get lucky and hit a bomb and change the entire board.

Richard's Rating: 3 out of 5.

Comments: Wordz Mania is not challenging on the lower levels. But, as you go up each level you are required to build more and more words. And not only that, there will be more and more red square letters with their timers ready to go off. Believe me, Wordz Mania is quite challenging indeed. This is the type of game, the more you play it the more you will appreciate it. If you like word games... you should enjoy this one.
