Wizard’s Words puts a 3D twist to the usual word game you might be accustomed to. The game will have you link up letters to form the correct words and complete the level. Of course, the game isn’t as straightforward and easy sometimes, especially once you start encountering obstacles like bomb or frozen letter tiles. There are hints for you to use too, if necessary.
Wizard’s Words doesn’t really have a storyline except for the basic idea that you, much like Harry Potter, a.k.a. the Boy Who Lived, are enrolled in a school of magic that specializes in “word magic”. Every level you face in this game is a class you need to ace in order to proceed to the harder stuff.
Before we dive into the gameplay, I’ve got to say, Wizard’s Words is a very well-optimized game. It runs really well on my phone and, unlike certain word games that I’ve played before (I’m not naming names), the swiping mechanism feels a lot smoother and is more accurate.
That being said, if you’ve played any word game before, you should be able to get into Wizard’s Words really easily. The controls are very simple to grasp since you mainly need to swipe at the letter tiles to link them up and form words. But if you find swiping isn’t working for you, then you can tap on each letter to chain them together.
Now, the words you need to form to complete a level can be really specific. You’ll be given several empty boxes above. The boxes may make up 1, 2 or 3 words that you’ll need to find. These boxes will show you how long the mystery words are, and which exact location on the word is the bonus letter (they come in several tile colors) located. All of these clues will help you greatly so be sure to keep them in mind.
Not to mention, as the game is in 3D, there is usually a few sub-levels of words you’ll need to find before you can complete the entire level. This is pretty unique for a word game, but I find it a tad bit disappointing because there are just so much more the developers could do with this 3D concept. They could allow players to link “down” or “up”, for instance, but this feature isn’t available here. So, aside from the multilayer sub-levels, the 3D aspect of the game is just wasted here.
To spice things up, there are a couple of obstacles, including the bomb tiles in which you’ll have to use them to form the correct word (usually within a minute or a minute and a half) or the tile will explode, resulting in a game over. There are also frozen tiles where you’ll be forced to find the first word before the frozen tiles for the second word is thawed
Sometimes, in a level, you’ll be able to form bonus words, which basically means words that are valid but aren’t the “correct words” the game is looking for. These bonus words will fill up the kettle (that looks a lot more like a cauldron, by the way) below. Once full, you’ll get a nice prize – free hints!
Hints are like the power-ups you use in other games – they are designed to help you. Every hint will reveal a letter on a random word you have yet found in the level, and you can use a few of them in a row if needed. You can get more hints simply by completing the daily puzzle and missions, watching video ads, or getting them as a prize via Lucky Spin’s Wheel of Fortune. If you want, you can buy them using real cash as well.
Looking for an even better deal? Well, you can subscribe to the game’s Diamond Subscription at a price of $7.99 per week and get tons of perks like 15 free hints daily, 2 more extra Wheel of Fortune spins, a whopping 50% more hints for all in-app purchases. You can try the membership out for 3 days for free, but since the subscription is on auto-renewal, you must remember to cancel it before your free days are up.
Aside from the expensive subscription fee, the other red flag here is the fact that a Diamond Membership advertisement will be shoved right in your face whenever you first start up the game, asking you to sign up for a free trial. Thankfully, you can exit from this free trial offer without accepting it by tapping on the inconspicuous “X” at the top right corner of the screen. However, I believe there might be some players who will get forced into accepting this trial deal just because they don’t know how to exit from the ad.
Wizard’s Words is strictly a single play, word game and as such, the game doesn’t have any social features to speak of.
The graphics in this game are perhaps among the best I’ve seen in a word game. It may not have a gorgeous background that can rival that of Wordscapes, but everything looks bright and cheery enough to give the game a pleasant, lighthearted feeling. In terms of sound, the game has very nice ambient sounds that are designed to help you relax. There’s even a mischievous-like tune that will be played while you’re trying to solve a level.
All in all, Wizard’s Words is a welcoming change to the usual word game format, unfortunately, the whole 3D concept isn’t very well-explored in this game – there is just so much more they could do, such as allowing players to chain up letters from various layers of letter tiles, which literally increases the “depth” (pun intended) of the game.
So, aside from the unique 3D look and a couple of tweaks to the gameplay, the game is pretty much a standard, though very well-made, word puzzle game. Unless you are looking for something completely revolutionary and different, Wizard’s Words is still a decent game to play. Find Games Like Wizard's Words
