From what I remember with Bookworm, I'd say it and WordsWorth are pretty comparable. For the price difference I'd go with WordsWorth. As for Wurdle, I've never played it, so I can't help you there.

I have wordsworth and love it. I thought there was quite a difference or something that would make Bookworm stand out. I might pass on it. I will give it a try at the link though in the above post.

One thing Bookworm has that's kind of intriguing is the burning tile concept. Some tiles start off "on fire", and will actually burn the tiles below them and fall through if not used. If these tiles get to the bottom of the screen the game is over.
