I know that some people are complaining about the graphics on this game, but really it isn't really meant to be a high quality game. I think this game can be really fun and challenging when you get a lot of the fire tiles. My only complaint is the game needs to be updated because I try to use some words and it says they aren't words. Overrall this is a really fun game I highly recommend.

The only verdict I can confidently make is that the main menu music sounds like something straight out of a low-budget horror movie, and there's a weird-looking green worm with a bow tie, and it's smarter than me.

It keeps watching, with a snarky, Dreamworks grin on its face, his expression practically screaming, "Go on, keep trying. You know you ain't gonna make it because I'm better than you. You're going to BURN."

I scramble and the hellfire rains down on the board, devouring the letters one by one, slowly directing me towards my inevitable end, all whilst I'm being watched, mentally tortured, bombarded with the definitions of words I've never heard before.

"You may take me down, you overgrown gummyworm," I say, using my last vestige of breath, as I chain the word "PAIN", awarding me with 400PTS, the library enveloped in a mass of blazing inferno, soon all to become ashes, "BUT YOU'RE GOING DOWN WITH ME."

But I'm fighting a never-ending battle. That worm is still there, I know it. It's still alive.

And it hungers.

Персональный рейтинг - 6 из 10

"Дело было вечером, делать было нечего..." Так и здесь. Сидел я однажды вечерком, сидел, прокручивал библиотеку в Стиме, думал о своем, а зеленый червяк с обложки игры Bookworm все глядел на меня хитрым взглядом из-под очков, словно говорил: "Давай! Я игра, которую знает 5 человек в Стиме! Напиши на меня рецензию! Будь не таким как все!" А я взял и написал! Это ведь не просто какой-то там Bookworm. Это Bookworm Deluxe! Понимаете? Deluxe! Как марка презервативов. Легко запомнить.

Шутка ли, в эту игру я наиграл 10 часов, собирая из латинских букв, разбросанных по игровой доске, простенькие слова. Чем длиннее слово - тем больше очков. За использование в слове зеленых плашек с буквами - дополнительный бонус. Если красная плашка достигнет дна игрового поля, вся библиотека сгорит и Game Over. Еще есть аналог уровней и опыта, получаемого за складывание слов. И, наконец, самое главное - незатейливое упражнение на знание языка и внимательность.

Как говорила вредная химичка в мои школьные годы: "Простенько и со вкусом!" Фу... даже вспоминать не хочу эту бабу, сколько крови попила! Из двоек-троек не вылезал из-за нее! Весь аттестат мне испортила, шельма! Хотя, я и сам хорош... нет бы уроки учить, так я с придурошными дружбанами верными товарищами своими шлялся не весть где! Впрочем, прошу прощения, я отвлекся...

Что-что? Bookworm?! Что еще за "Книжный червь"?! Вы о чем? Ах, игра с червяком-зубрилой на обложке... Да, да, рекомендую. Только отстаньте от меня.

Personal rating - 6 out of 10

I had no business to attend to, I was sitting on my ♥♥♥, dreaming, thinking about things... Then I noticed a cranky green worm peeking at me from under his huge glasses like saying "Come on, dude. I am a game known by only 5 people on Steam! Go on - write a review on me! Be like no other!" And so I did. Because it's not just Bookworm! It's Bookworm Deluxe, got it?! Deluxe! Like a condom brand. Easy to remember.

Jokes aside, I spent more than 10 hours playing that game, making words out of colored tiles with letters on them. The longer the word - the bigger the prize. Adding green tile to a word earns more points. If red tile reaches the bottom of the screen, all the library goes to hell and Game Over... Also XP and levels of progress are included. And the most important thing - refreshing your English language and attention skills.

Try it. If you dare!

The other reviewers have .4 to 1.3 hours logged and give this game praise for YOU to buy it... Look at my hours logged, listen to me, buy it.
