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 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

The latest brain-tingling puzzle game from the creators of Block Droppin Blitz.

i found it enjoyable and challenging, im still on early stage 8....hoping it gets tougher as i progress. etc more TILES like Q,Z or Qu....i encountered once and it made me think my strategy. Anyone who likes something different not generic copy cat ,might want to give this a try.

Really enjoying it, onto levels 50+! Only issues I had were a lack of an undo button and words above 8 or 9 letters (for example, 'recruiter' or 'signature') seemingly giving out zero swap points instead of five. Works good on my S7.

I find this game to be challenging and definitely one of a kind. These are attributes that I've found hard to find in a word game lately. This game is different than the rest of your "run of the mill" word games, amidst a lot of games that all seem to be the same to me. I've been looking for something unique that keeps me on my toes, and this is it. I'd like to tell the developers to keep up the good work!

What's new

What’s New in Word Forward:

YOU MUST UNDO WHAT YOU HAVE DONE: Or, well, now you can. By popular demand, we’ve added an “Undo” button to let you clean up your mistakes: specifically, when you submit a word that you didn’t mean to. Note: this undo feature only works in Word Forward. If you say something mean to your third cousin at your niece’s quinceanera, our undo button can’t take *those* words back.
