You can’t spell “bubbles” with Locust viscera in Epic’s Gears of War 2, and you can’t scribble “pregnant” on a wall in Monolith’s F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. Even if you could spell the words, neither game would reward you for the feat. Intense violence doesn’t mix well with the fine art of constructing words.
The first word I spelled in ngmoco’s WordFu was “dildo.” I gulped a giggle and looked around the room anxiously to make sure no one had witnessed my scandalous assemblage of consonants and vowels. I returned to the game shortly thereafter, safe, and managed to spell ten more words with the time I had left. Without realizing that I had done so, I went into another match. And then I went into another, and another, and so on.
Once the timer ends, the match is over. But you probably won’t want to quit. New, unknown letters may give you the opportunity for wicked scores and a chance to smash your highest totals. I’ve put off hours of work thanks to the points and how damn easy it is to get into the next match.
Score: 8 -- Great (8s are impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding them back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash.)
