Build words. Whomp friends. Be a Bookworm Hero!

Get ready to rumble in an all-new test of vocab valor! Play for free and face off with friends as you build words from letter tiles and whomp foes. Hire literary Heroes to join in the fray and use their prodigious powers and special gems. The bigger the word, the badder the damage, so be sure to build the best word possible. Can you spell your way to victory in this vocabularious word challenge?

Play head-to-head against friends via Facebook or skip logging in and choose a random opponent.

Assume the role of Lex the Bookworm or be a famous character like Hamlet or Polyphemus and use their special powers to supercharge your words.

Choose from a host of Pets that each have their own magical powers to add extra bonuses, damage or health. But use them wisely!

Boost your word power with Emeralds, Diamonds and other gem tiles from the original Bookworm game.

Earn Coins as you play to rent or buy new Heroes. Plus, you could win extra Coins at the end of each game with a special bonus payout.

The Bookworm series continues with more wordy fun for all ages. With millions of fans worldwide, Bookworm is one of the most popular digital word games ever!

    Excellent and very addictive game!

  • Love it

    by Bugsauntie

    I love this game. I've always loved bookworm and I love how it is now a multi player game where you can challenge others in spelling :-) lots of fun

  • Bookworm Heroes

    by Coors Medic

    This is one of the best games on the net! Challenging. Never boring. Best graphics of any game I have seen. The only thing I would improve is a way to chat back and forth with your opponent. I give this game 5 stars. If it was possible to rate this higher, I would. Keeps your brain tuned up and on your toes.

  • FUN GAME BUT ......

    by Blondie083

    Too many sore losers who quit playing when they start to lose. PLEASE make a option where if there is no activity after 3 days, that game is deleted & those coins reimbursed. People quit playing and it's a waste of time and coins !!!!

  • Its a fun game but...

    by Giovana Gallo

    Only if you are willing to pay for stuff, or connecting to Facebook... Which I really don't think it'll do any good and if you guys want advertisement you should buy some "space" on Facebook!!

  • Nice

    by ChrisG5267

    Great game

  • Game Center Support

    by Anonymous 63627362763827382

  • Bookworm

    by Bjefferys

    Good word game against friends

  • Splendiferous

    by Grumpy McGee

    One of the most satisfying mobile word games I've ever played. I love how you have to balance word length with high-scoring tiles to create the best possible attack. The different hero characters and special tiles are really fun and interesting. Great work!

    by The Ea

  • Love this game

    by Icesis68

    I have lots of fun with family and friends and random players

  • Weak Sauce

    by Bragg baby DJ

    After purchasing coins, the game had a glitch and gave me an entirely new account. All my hard work, erased and I was forced to assume someone else's identity. Overall, made the game not worth playing and I would never recommend this game for anyone else.

  • Boooo

    by Brittanie Sidebottom

    It won't let me continue the game I have started, and tapping on it does nothing. That and all of the Facebook integrating=me unhappy=possible deletion of the game!!!! I'll give y'all a chance to fix it, only because I'm nice.

  • Disappointed

    by Alitlbird

    Downloaded then erased after I found I needed to log in thru Facebook.

  • Worth playing Worth Getting

    by MrQuan18

    Best game I'm playing by far still like the classics but this is better than the classics worth getting worth your time

  • Addictive

    by Inyovaginaor mouth

    Great game! I have to limit my time on this or I get into trouble!

  • Bookworm heroes has just messed me up royally. Lost all my contacts, 50,000+ coins and my ID.

    by Cinike33

    One of the few games I enjoy. Being able to play with unknown folks makes it interesting and convenient! Wish there was a way to keep track of how many point each player has continuously. While i am questioning the game, how is it that I constantly getting an Unproportionate number of gems, I get five , while my opponent gets 13 ! crazy

  • Cool

    by Ur1_darkangel

  • Dope


    Awesome fun educational, entertaining, and E for everyone violence lol

  • Mediocre

    by Twentytwoooo

    The game is okay, but the original bookworm is so much better. It's annoying that you can't just keep playing consecutively with one person or the computer like the bookworm game you have to purchase.

  • Facebook

    by Mommiemook

    Sorry :,-( too much Facebook garbage that goes on. I refuse and will never get Facebook. That's a shame! I love the game! Why can't we play with user names like other games? I'll give you 5 stars if you change the game that we can play with user names too!

  • Ehh

    by Lolipopipi 

    It's ok, but I really love the original version way better than this one
