Beautifully simple. Endlessly challenging.

Word Forward is the word puzzle game where every choice matters.

Can you use all of the letters in the 5x5 grid to make words disappear and clear the board? Word Forward isn’t about spelling the longest words or the most clever – it’s about using chess-like strategy to clear every tile and declare victory in 500 puzzles. It requires wits and cunning – Word Forward is a brain teaser that will really make you think!

PLAY the #1 word puzzle game enjoyed by more than 6 million people worldwide.

- SPELL words by tracing a line between tiles in any direction, including diagonally
- SWAP any two letters on the grid by using a SWAP TOKEN, earned during gameplay
- JUMBLE the tiles on the grid to replace all the letters with new ones when all else fails
- CHANGE the letter on a tile to any other letter you choose using the SWAP MODIFIER
- ELIMINATE stubborn tiles with BOMBS to get yourself out of a tight spot
