Welcome to Whack-A-Word, the exciting fast-paced word recognition game! The rules are simple. If it's a word, whack it!
One by one "words" appear on the screen. Some of them are real words, but others are fakes. If you can whack the real ones and eliminate the fakes, you win! But each time you make a mistake, your word remains stuck on the screen. As the game goes on, the words come faster and the mistakes start piling up. Finally, the game ends when there's no room for a new word to appear.
Whack-A-Word chooses its words from a 200,000-word dictionary, and offers you a choice of 3 different methods for generating its fakes. The standard game goes on forever (sort of like Tetris), but you can also play with a time limit, play until you reach a target number of words, or play a Round Robin Tour of several games and try to get the highest cumulative score.
Whack-A-Word version 1.0 includes nine different built-in variations, plus the ability to customize your own rules and difficulty settings. It has optional sound effects, configurable font and color schemes, and a high score list to track your top 10 games. Download your copy of Whack-A-Word today!
