The goal of “Word Whomp to Go” is to make as many words as you can from the 6 letters provided by the game, and which you will be seeing in the middle of the screen. In all game modes except Puzzle modes (we will describe game modes latter), there is a time limit.
The way in which the game is played is pretty easy. You can either type or click the letters to move them to the back row shown in the screen and make words. If the word you made is included in the puzzle, it will appear on a sign at the top of the screen. If you reach the carrot, you’ll receive bonus points. If you find all the words in the puzzle you get the turnip for a special bonus.
While you are playing, there are some buttons and functions you need to know. Let’s take a look at them:
- Hint: a hints shows one letter of a word you haven’t found, and how many letters that word has, but at the cost of time or points depending on the game mode.
- Mix Up: this button scrambles the letters in the front row.
- Clear letter: Undo your last move when clicked.
- Enter: click this button when you complete a word.
- Clear word: this button removes all of the letters from the back row.
- New word: click this button if you wish to begin a new puzzle.
Word Whomp to Go has 3 word-twisting game modes:
- Classic Mode: is a tuned-up version of the online Word Whomp game. Make every word you can from 6 letters in 2 minutes.
- Puzzle Mode: is an untimed strategy mode where your goal is to find every single word for a given 6-letter combination.
- Action Mode: is a multi-round mode where the clock counts down, but every word you find buys you a little more time. Getting to the carrot wins the round.
