What It Is
Word Grab is a free word game app that is similar to other popular crossword apps. With Word Grab, though, the object is to have more letter tiles of your color than your opponent's on the board. Each letter tile you place is worth one point, and you can grab points from your opponent by making a word that intersects with one of your opponent's words. So, if you make a word that goes through your opponent's word, the shared letter becomes yours. If you use the shared letter to only begin or end your word, you don't grab the additional point. The letters of your word have to surround the shared letter. The game ends when tiles run out or when players can't place new words for two consecutive turns.
Players have multiple play options in Word Grab. First, players can choose to make words in English, French, or Spanish. Players can also play against the computer in Single Player mode, with an online player in Play Online mode, or with a friend at their side in Pass & Play mode. If playing against the computer, there are three difficulty levels: easy, normal, and hard. The difference between the levels has to do with the length of the words the computer will play. Smaller words in easy and longer, more high-scoring words in hard.
Is It Fun?
Fans of word games will like this easy-to-play game. Because there is the chance to grab your opponent's points, you need to be strategic in order to win. This app lets players play with friends, but if they're looking for a quick game where they don't have to wait on another player to make a move, playing against the computer is a great option.
Who It’s For
Mega Space says Word Grab can be played by all ages, but we think it's going to appeal to fans of word games ages 6 and up.
