In Dictionary Attack you make words from the row of letters along the bottom of the board and tunnel your way to the high scoring double and triple word score letters.

Instructions from the Game

How to Play

Game-Dictionary Attack-Instructions1.png
Make words from the letters along the bottom of the board. They have to be at least 4 letters long. The longer the word the higher its score:

  • 4 letters earns 1 point
  • 5 letters earns 2 points
  • 6 letters earns 3 points
  • and so on...

Scoring

Blue letters multiply the word score by 2.
Red letters multiply the word score by 3. Note: only the highest multiplier is used, so don't use more than one multiplier at once.

Wildcards

Game-Dictionary Attack-Instructions4.png If you get stumped. Click one of the little flying saucers in the lower right. That will change one of your letters (at random) to a wildcard.

Game-Dictionary Attack-Instructions5.png You can use the wildcard as any letter of the alphabet. Note: each wildcard letter subtracts one point from the word score.

Game-Dictionary Attack-Instructions6.png For example aide would normally score 1 point because it is four letters long, but instead it scores zero because it has a wildcard. Note: the blue letter in the word has no effect because it multiplies the zero score by two which is still zero.

End Game

Game-Dictionary Attack-Instructions7.png As you make words from the letters, your score increases. When you can no longer make words or when you have cleared the board, the game ends and your score is recorded. Your high scores are shown on the right of the game display.

Trophies

If your score is especially high, or if you accomplish other goals during the game, you will be awarded a trophy.
