5.0 out of 5 stars Also works with Windows 7. September 13, 2010
By mrshvd3
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I first played Bookworm on the Popcap website years ago, then bought Bookworm Deluxe on disc shortly after for my computer (Windows XP Home). When I got my new computer (Windows 7 Home), I couldn't get the game to download or work from the same disc, even with compatibility mode, and figured that was that. Then I saw Bookworm advertised on here as being compatible up to and including Windows Vista, so I figured I'd give it a try; I was missing my favorite game, and if it didn't work, the price would be no great loss. Well, it's downloaded and installed, no need to use compatibility mode, and runs like a charm. No problems at all. By the way, although the packaging says "Bookworm" (which is the bare-bones version I first played on the Popcap website), it is Bookworm Deluxe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great word game but needs some improvement April 8, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not really a game player but, being older, I like to have ways to keep my brain working. This game could take up your whole day if you let it but you can close and come back to a game in progress. The instructions are minimal - I wish, for instance, they had a list of the levels.
Howevery I have two real complaints - Bookworm needs a way to upgrade its vocabulary - sadly lacking in many newer words such as Blog and many others which don't come to mind as I write this.
My last complaint is that Bookworm sometimes jumps the gun - while I'm still keying in letters, it assumes a lesser word and credits me for it. For instance I worked hard to get letters in line for the bonus word of Poise, but as soon as I keyed in the S, it gave me credit for Pois and moved on - no bonus points for me. This happens several times a game.
All of these problems aside, Bookworms still is a consuming game.

5.0 out of 5 stars WORD-RECOGNITION FUN!! November 27, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a excellent educational tool for preschoolers and adults wishing to hone their vocabulary - and a great TV-alternative.

Words have to be recognized and formed from a wall of letters that get refreshed as you progress. Target-words offer extra points whereas, repeatedly forming easy small words is "punished" with the appearance of burning letter-tiles that, if let to reach the bottom, end the game.

This is a perfect example of what has come to be known as Casual Gaming. It would be a good idea to download the 60-min trial version from a site, such as REFLEXIVE (you can Google it), and decide for yourself whether this is indeed your cup of tea.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

U P D A T E...:

As fans of "BOOKWORM" and "LET'S MAKE A DEAL" may or may not know, the word "ZONK" is recognized and accepted on "BOOKWORM". NO 'zonks' in BOOKWORM, that's for surw! : )

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

O R I G I N A L.....R E V I E W

BOOKWORM, the computer software game being reviewed here, used to be called "Bespelled". Instead of "Lex The Bookworm" greeting the player, a small, wise-looking, grey-haired little wizard greeted one, and the upper levels of achievement included levels of "Wizard", "Mega-Wizard", etc., instead of "Bookworm".
"Mega-Bookworm", etc. I suspectthat the anti-Harry Potter forces were here more successful, and so "Bespelled" is, sadly, no more, as the "old" version is incompatible with newer computer systems, starting with Windows Vista. A pity, really -- I did like looking at that little guy, (who, unlike Lex the bookworm, WAS human, after all).
The board, (or at least the section inhabited by the Wizard), was a bit better drawn, too -- but why quibble? Just about everything else about this game -- including the voice of "Lex The Bookworm", (which is the same as the little Wizard's voice), is totally the same. And it's always a challenge and a lot of fun!

Basically, in starting the game, one sees letters lined up like bricks
on the screen. The player has to connect those letters that touch each other -- left to right, up to down, down to up, right to left, (or a combination of any of these), to to make words. The main thing is that the letters TOUCH each other. The longer the word the better! After finishing making the word, click on the last
letter or press "Enter".

5.0 out of 5 stars Bookworm (deluxe) April 4, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I tried this game online for free. After the free trial was up I had become hooked. I had to purchase a hard copy of the game to continue playing.

This occupies a lot of my time when my husbnd hogs the TV playing Madden Football.

If you like Scrabble, you wouuld probably enjoy this word game.
