Beautifully simple. Endlessly challenging.

Word Forward is the 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 carefully using every tile to declare victory in 500 puzzles. It requires cunning and strategy -- Word Forward is a brain teaser that will really make you think!

  • 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

“chess-like think-ahead strategy...an excellent buy for solo players.”

“A challenging puzzler not to be missed.” 

“Equally a brain-teaser and a brain-pleaser.”
