iPhone App Review – Word Wonders: The Tower of Babel

iPhone App Review – Word Wonders: The Tower of Babel

November 25th, 2012 by

Word game fans and anyone looking for a fresh take on the Puzzle Quest-style of casual game should take a look at Word Wonders: The Tower of Babel, from developer dreamfab. Create words crossword-style to try and defeat your enemies as you journey ever higher up the tower towards your goal. The letters do damage and increase your power based on their value and the value of boosters that are on the board itself, and you have an arsenal of spells and items at your disposal to help you.

Word Wonders: The Tower of Babel is a fun, exciting version of head-to-head crossword-style gameplay that incorporates role-playing elements similar to Puzzle Quest and games of its type, while still rewarding you for earning that English or Liberal Arts degree and using hard-to-place letters. The text on the screen gets a bit small and hard to read in certain areas, making it a bit too tempting to skip the story-filled moments of dialogue, but all in all that was the only drawback I found while playing this interesting and exciting game.

The action in the main game is turn-based, with you and your opponent placing words on the board and the words from prior turns disappearing leapfrog-style so the smallish battle boards don’t fill up with letters. There are multipliers on the “map” that will boost the value of the words and letters placed there, so there is a strategic element to playing beyond just using the highest-value letters.

There is also a “boost board” that is a larger, persistent board where you place letters that you find along your journey in order to boost your hero’s stats. You can also use the Alchemy screen to create items from the ingredients you find or buy along the way as well. The different sub-screens like Boost and Alchemy are a bit confusing at first, but once you dive into them and mess around a bit they are easy to understand.


Word Wonders: The Tower of Babel is a great new game that gives you role-playing elements in a crossword-style head-to-head word battle. If you like any of the genres from which it is fused then you won’t go wrong dropping $2.99 for it today.
