Bookworm is an addictive word game with an adorable host. It's been available on PC for years, but this DS version adds an exciting Action mode and an amusing (if slightly underwhelming) multiplayer feature. All the stat tracking is also nice and it will take you a while to complete all the books and build your entire house. Word game fans that've never played Bookworm should pick this one up post haste. Even if you are familiar with this tale, the new features probably make it worth a second read.
The Review Busters
Bookworm is an addictive word game for your Nintendo DS. The game might have took some time to come out on the DS but the wait was well worth it. Both classic and action modes are a lot of fun on all occasions. Multiplayer is a nice little touch so you should be able to have quite some fun with this budget title from PopCap Games.
Game industry News (GiN)
So, in summation, if you are someone who likes words and word games and finds them to be their own reward, Book Worm is a pleasant and highly playable diversion with a nice mix of word-power, strategy, and action incorporated into play, and the transition to the hand-held platform is clean and functional. If you’re only so-so about word games in general, it is unlikely that the added features and graphics will redeem this one for you. They all come off as a bit…well…superfluous.
