 Games BookWormZ - a fun game to develop your vocabulary
Website - Download - Freeware
My wife and I have been long time fans of a PopCap game called BookWorm. To play it for free you have to go to one of the online java based game sites. Now you can get the same challenge on your PC and you don't have to open your internet browser to do it. BookWormZ is very similar to the online game and it's actually faster and more flexible in some areas. I especially like the feature that allows you to look up word definitions. I found that this program will also run stand-alone on removable media as long as Windows has the appropriate ocx and dll files. All you have to do is copy the program folder to the removable media and you can play it wherever you go.

Quote from the website - BookWormZ is a Tetris like game played with letters. Purpose of this game is to make words from a set of adjacent letters arranged randomly on a board. Words can be made by linking letters in adjacent squares. BookWormZ requires good vocabulary, imagination and quick thinking. Computer hints help you learn new words quickly.
