Reached #1 Word Game in the US, UK, Canada and Australia!

Create words as the letters fall down and pile up on the screen. Making long words and using rare letters is a risky strategy, but will score much higher. But watch out, if the letters reach the top of the screen it's Game Over!

Designed to make the most of your Mac, WordCrasher will test your typing skills as well as your word skills to the max. Although faster typists will benefit from using the keyboard, players can also use the mouse to click on letters directly if they prefer.

‣ HD graphics and animation
‣ Recognizes 5 languages - English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
‣ Three difficulty modes, Easy, Medium and Hard to cater for all levels of skill
‣ New INSANITY mode will test even the most battle hardened of touch typists. Seeing the Game Over screen within 15 seconds should not come as a surprise. Not for the faint of heart!
‣ Realistic tactile physics
‣ 6 music tracks
‣ New sound effects
‣ Super smooth 60 frames per second animation

Love this game. It is addicting. Have had no technical problems with it, which is an absolute must, to get a 5 star rating. Great way to pass the time while you are waiting in line. This a simple game that gets harder as it goes. Also feel it is a better way for kids to spend their time than shooting at things. At least this way they practice spelling. I’m not saying all shooting and fighting games are bad, I just like this kind a lot better. Also like the music because it lets you know when you are about to time out. Keep more like this coming.

This game is seriously addicting. Gotta go and play some more.
Garter Trout on 9/10/2012
Really? I played a few levels…Like Steve Martin said in an old stand-up routine, and I paraphrase " How much does it cost to get in to this comedy club? It's still $5? Wow. I was going to throw my five bucks in the street but I can come in here? " I should have thrown my five in the street...
Cute game

Fun... Fast moving... Well done app....
Great fun, teases the brain, yet low time-commitment
VA User 0403 on 11/27/2011
I love this game for the way it teases my mind and makes me think. My one complaint is the dictionary. I essentially have to memorize which legitimate words it doesn't take so I don't get stuck in a critical situation trying to type "zen" or another unapproved word. i wish I had the option to choose between dictionaries like I do with other Scrabble type games. I will say the dictionary issue is an issue with other word games too. Overall, this game works my mind while providing solid entertainment value.

Great fun. Definately addicting!
Should be named MacCrasher

Froze my computer :/ I don't appreciate that…other than that, a fun game
Fantastic Game!
Papapya1 on 8/9/2011
The most fun I have had in a long time! Highly recommend this game for youngsters and elders! It is exciting and fast moving. Love, love this game.
great - but why you change the logo! O_o
deviousdaffodil on 8/4/2011
Very addicting app, especially after you first purchase it. The fever does, thankfully, wear off a bit over time, however the game still has a lot of replay value as a fun time-waster. I would recommend it, decently priced and very fun. If you like any kind of word game, you'll love this. My only issue is that they changed the icon. Call me a creature of habit but I liked the "W" logo and this "stacked chips" thing just isn't working for me. =P

I'm very glad I purchased this game. I enjoy playing it although it is very addicting!
The next best app to Word Play online
foodlady on 7/5/2011
I wish there was an option for online challengers like Word Play. Very challenging, fast moving game that is fast and always engaging. No crash issues and well worth the money. An instant favorite for any word lovers out there. Thanks.
Challenging and fun to play
Lisa Koch on 7/1/2011
Once they start dropping fast it becomes quite challenging. Not sure if it relieves stress ... or creates it! LOL
Good price for a great game
wardcurry on 6/22/2011
This is a very fun game that is easy to play and like others have said, it is addictive too, as you will want to play again to better your scores and see what new words you can create with the letters. The possibilities of this game are only limited by the span of your understanding the English language (ie there can be several thousand possibilities for any given set of letters). The graphics are great too, very colorful and fluid, and the game can be played either in a window or in full-screen mode. The sountrack (audio) is very nice as well, and this game is really a sight for the senses. The price can't be beat either, this game is fully worth the $1.99 and that is why I gave it five stars.
A Great Game!
et al. on 6/8/2011
I love word games and have not been able to find very many. Maybe I just don't know where to look. Anyway I was thrilled to find this one. It's great fun. Although I find the easy game still a little fast for me. It does keep my brain active, and I am getting better at it. I'll just have to keep playing until I can get to those higher levels. I like the look of the game too, with all the pastel colors, and the music is cheerful but not frantic. Very, very well done!
Just plain fun
Izon Ltd on 6/1/2011
A game that stirs the mind. Better than mindless games for sure
Simple to Play, Tough to Master
Aeolil on 4/10/2011
Addictive and simple fun. Definitely right for the nice low price. If you like any of the Flash word games popular on social media sites, this one is more convenient and not pricey.
Addicting and fun.
KWontroba on 4/2/2011
Nice music and very pleasing gameplay. No crash issues. Lost a star 'cause it gets impossible hard after the 10th level, even in easy mode! Still worth the $. GET IT! :)
Love it!
DeBeeBell on 2/26/2011
Fun and challenging way to keep the mind active. Even youngsters with small vocabularies like the colors and challenge of finding words in the jumble of letters.
TeachinMomma on 2/21/2011
This is addictive! It's a challenge to build words and try to beat previous scores. Easy to pass hours upon hours...thank goodness for a long battery life! Got it for the iPhone too. Love it!
glitterbell on 2/19/2011
I love word puzzle games and i'm happy i purchased this one. Many different modes to choose from and it's a very addictive game. A must buy indeed! it'll have you going bananas looking for words to come up with : )
iMac Newbie

Great game for iMac newbie who loves word games.
Randy6T9 on 1/14/2011
best word game ever
Fun & addictive but tends to freeze and shut down....
nkbiggs on 1/11/2011
This is a really fun game to play and is quickly addictive, however; many times the app has either shut down unexpectedly or has frozen-up mid-game. When it shuts down it's not that big of an issue, other than losing current data, because it will easily restart. Unfortunately, when it freezes, I have had to force quit the game and restart my Mac. We all know what a pain that can be!! Fix the bug and I'll be happy to update rating to 5*.
Requires Speed and Wits!
Galaron on 1/9/2011
This is a rock solid word game for players of any age. I actually prefer this game on the iMac than I do on my iPhone because of the keyboard support. Insanity mode is this ultra challenging "can I survive for 1 minute!?" sort of experience that has me playing dozens of games in a row. The elegant interface reflects the nice rule structure: go for the biggest scoring word or just spell a word that takes up the most space but won't get you as many points? It's a simple structure that makes for one of the most addictive games I've played in ages. WordCrasher will be on my Dock for a long time.
Not challenging, not for learning.
Pilcorito on 1/7/2011
Beautiful, well done UI. This game is fun if you're into mindless typing. Otherwise, it's just an exercise in letter jumbling. I bought this hoping it would be a good educational game, it's possible it might be for kids 3rd to 5th grade, but if you're looking for something suited for new readers, try Montessory Crosswords instead.
Very Addicting!
MusicMan0207 on 1/6/2011
This game is very addicting and fast-paced. It really makes you think and is most definitely worth the money!
