Watch video - Type: WordSnake Scrabble in YouTube Search

Scrabble players, break free from your border confines and venture onto the endless world of WordSnake. And for a limited time you can get this groundbreaking new word game at the introductory offer of 67% off the list price.

Scrabble was never this much fun and I LOVE Scrabble! The App Spotter

There is a Scrabble board in one out of three homes in America. There should be a WordSnake on every scrabble-loving iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users device. App Maverick

I love Elmer the WordSnake. Hes my etymological hero! Appinion

WordSnake, by oBo Games, takes word-building to a whole new level of fun. Help Elmer the WordSnake get from his snake den to the den of Ophelia, his sweetheart. One catch - Elmer is a word aficionado. He can only cross the game board over actual words.
You must use 130 letter tiles to build a word bridge for Elmer to cross. To make the trip more challenging, there are Obstacles and Shortcuts to help and hinder. Obstacles are impassable areas on the board, while Shortcuts allow you to jump over several columns to get closer to Ophelias den. There are also letter and word bonus icons to increase your score.
The optional Word Tinting feature allows you to see the word bridge as you build it. For those loving a real challenge, you can turn this feature off.

The game comes with three maps, Desert Breeze; Ice Breakers and Zoo Mania. Each map has its own unique Obstacles, Shortcuts and Bonus Icons.

Once completed, you can send your scores to your Facebook or Twitter account. You can even Snake A Friend, a personal email that challenges a friend to beat your score.

Welcome to WordSnake...Words Without Borders.

If you're a Scrabble player, then you'll want to move up to the new animated board that sets you free from the 15 x 15 confines imposed on us since 1938. There are Obstacles and Shortcuts galore as you build a word bridge across the board to connect Elmer, the WordSnake, with his beloved Ophelia. You get 130 letter tiles, including double-letter tiles CH, TH, IN, QU and ER. An endless number of boards and fun.

You guys do know the general perception here, right?

Posts praising a game coming from a user that has only the 1 post to their credit sure looks shilly/fake.

Hey Game Breaker,

Are the maps/gameboards made randomly with some basic balancing parameters each go or completely fixed?

Wordsnake is fun, but I like Woffo as well. I like what oBo is putting out.
