Wurdweb is a word puzzle game modelled on the feeling you get from completing a crossword. Only, unlike a crossword, you are given the words. You select words from your list and connect them to existing words on the board.

There are multiple ways to play but the main mode sees you placing words to work your way towards a finished tile. Putting down a word that meets the objective wins the round. In Target Mode, there is only one single solution, whereas, in the Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Modes, players can put down as many words as they can.

This game is enjoyed by 8-12 year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity.


Wurdweb assists with controls by snapping the words to the grid, so you don't need to have a precise aim to place the words where you want to. Controllers are supported through the native functionality in iOS, macOS, and tvOS. But there's no in-game remapping.
