Classic Casual Gem

Bookworm Adventures is a refreshing mix of scrabble and RPG elements. You traverse side-scrolling levels fighting enemies one at a time spelling out words to deal heart damage. As you defeat enemies you earn exp which like an RPG allows you to level up and gain more hearts or stat bonuses. You're slowly introduced to items and special gear (of which you can only equip 3 at a time). It's rather amazing how applying simple RPG systems to a bookworm's tried and true game design elevates the overall package resulting in a more addictive and enjoyable game. Highly recommended.
