Word Up! is available for free from the Windows App Store.
Main features of Word Up! for Windows 8 and 8.1:
When you launch the Word Up! game on your device, you will be shown the below interface.
Here, you can either choose to play the game, or click on the question mark button to view the help section of the game. For now, we will go ahead and click on the Play button. As soon as you click on the Play button, you will be presented with the below interface on your screen.
As you can see in the screenshot above, you will be able to see a timer running at the bottom right corner of the screen. You have to make as many words as possible during this time. When you click on a letter in the grid, the letter is shown at the bottom. You have to click on the letters in a fashion so that you form a meaningful word. Once that’s done, you can click on the Word Up! button and points will be allotted to you. You can see your score and letters used at the bottom left of the screen. If you use the golden letters, you get higher points for the words that you form.
Once the game is over, you will be shown a screen much like the above interface where you will be able to see your score. You can choose to start a new game from the above screen as well!
Word Up! is a nice game app for Windows 8 and 8.1 which sharpens your English vocabulary by allowing you to type words from a limited grid of letters shown on your screen. The app has smooth animations and is definitely worth a download!
I rate the game a 4.5 out of 5!
