Description

Word Yo! is a fast-paced word search puzzle game. The object of the game is to prevent your sinking stack of letter tiles from completely falling off the screen. This is done by spelling words with the existing letter tiles, which awards the player with more tiles that fall onto the stack. The longer the words, and the more rare the letters in the words, the more tiles and points the player receives.

There are bonus tiles that multiply the word score, the letter score and add to the scramble meter. When the scramble meter is full, the player can activate a board scramble to mix up the tiles and add some bonus tiles.

Judging your progress is Laura the Librarian who announces her approval or displeasure with your progress as you play. She has a variety of costumes that fit the theme of the level you are on.

There are 9 modes of play each with their own high score list.
