iPhone word games are addictive. They’re also good, inexpensive ways to challenge and stimulate your mind.
Would it not be cool to see similar word games on your Mac? At similar prices? How about free? How about the classic word game WordsWorth on your Mac as a Dashboard Widget? See? Already your brain cells are stimulated. You can’t stop yourself. You must click and download and play long into the night.
Shop? No, Play Till You Drop!
Here’s the thing about games. They’re fun. They stimulate. There are more games than you can afford, whether Mac or iPhone. Why not add a little Friday Freebie to your Mac collection of thought provoking games, courtesy of Mac360’s resident Value Vixen™?
You’ve got a Mac. You’ve got a Dashboard. You need Widget games.
WordsWorth is a classic iPhone game with beautiful graphics and plenty of mental stimulation using a scramble of words on screen. Have Mac, will play, I always say. WordsWorth for Mac recreates the iPhone experience as a Dashboard Widget.
For free. What’s not to like? You have a Mac. You have a free Widget game. You know the alphabet. You can read. The only other qualification is that you must love words and be able to withstand a mild addiction.
That’s WordsWorth. The Dashboard Widget version recreates many of the exciting elements of the iPhone version. Got a good vocabulary? Or, so you think? Try your word skills against WordsWorth.
Start off as a neophyte—Word Goof—and progress by adding longer words, or unique words with rare letters to earn rewards. The WordsWorth Widget keeps track of your score. You have control over timing and word length. Start small, go long, earn more rewards.
How do you play WordsWorth? How do you play Scrabble? It’s like Scrabble has been taking performance enhancing drugs and traveling incognito. The onscreen honeycomb structure of the playing board allows you to link letters to form words.
You decide the grid size, determine the minimum word length, and set the timer delay.
You’re in control of every aspect of play. WordsWorth is, quite frankly, addictive. It’s just not, well, you know, handheld, like the iPhone version.
I’m sure there are others, but WordsWorth is the first iPhone game I recall that showed up first on the iPhone and then was reborn as a Dashboard Widget for Mac users. Since you can set parameters, WordsWorth becomes a good way to help older children enter the world of a Scrabble-like game that’s also good at vocabulary building.
In this case, your vocabulary building efforts now show up as a free Dashboard Widget.
