Publisher's Description

The word game with zip! For the word game aficionados; you will fall in love with it from the first few seconds.

Simple in concept but with amazing depth, WordZip has it all! Have you ever played a word game where you see your favorite word, almost? Now you can have the satisfaction of finding your words and then completing them yourself.

You can finish your word by scrolling (zipping) the rows and columns, but be careful not to mess up your word while it’s still under construction! The game has a comfy jeans theme with stitching, a zippered pocket, embroidered patches, buttons and more.

Every correct word zips open the pocket a little more until you win the level and a new patch pops out. Be quick: the letters pop off faster and faster. Use several gem letters in a word to multiply the score by 2, 4, 8 or more times.

Use the "slow" power word to slow down the rate the letters pop off, and the "fill" power word to refill the whole play area with fresh letters. Rusty letters slowly decay and can spread their rust. Rips appear and remain from level to level, so don’t let them pile up!

Stitched letters cannot be moved after a few seconds, but can be used to mend rips. Feed the adorable mouse (who shows up when the pocket zipper opens at least halfway) with a cheesy letter and he will thank you with 1000 points! Any letters left over when you finish a level are counted for a bonus. Contains over 153,000 words (uses ENABLE word list)!

Offensive words will not show up in the power words, though they will be accepted if you create them. For ages 8 and up. The automatic save feature keeps your last game waiting for you if you quit.

High score table, full screen / scalable window options, sound and music options, built-in instructions, and a friendly ladybug round out this exciting, synergistic word game from Inspired Idea.
