Mr Word challenges you to a word game with added personality. Even more so, now that Mr Word talks back.

This update sees the following enhancements:

- Mr Word chats with you during 1 player game play, just like a real human opponent
- Improved dictionary (uses the Oxford English Dictionary if installed)
- more consistent AI gameplay

Choose 1 player or 2 player modes, and enter your name to begin.

In 1 player mode, you are playing against Mr Word himself. Featuring Genuine People Personality, Mr Word will really give you a run for your money.

Choose a difficulty level, Easy, Medium or Hard, then Mr Word will choose words that a real human would choose (his vocabulary increases in Hard level), and respond to your move in seconds - great for rapid fire play. Now even faster than before.

If you make Mr Word think for longer than a few seconds, you are doing really well!

Mr Word will even "spellcheck" your words as you lay them, so you know in advance whether the word you are playing is acceptable.

Also featuring the Define button - instantly brings up word definitions for all words played. High quality, Apple-supplied dictionary of over 100,000 words. Features definitions from the Oxford English Dictionary so you can learn new words and their meanings every time you play.

In 2 player mode, your Mac becomes a high quality fullscreen board game, with the added benefit of spellchecking to avoid arguments about valid words.

Mr Word is minimalist, highly playable, and beautifully designed so you can rediscover the joy of word games. For the most immersive experience, trying using Mr Word in fullscreen mode.

Please also check out the iOS version for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.


Release Notes:

- Mr Word chats with you during 1 player game play, just like a real human opponent

Problem with Fonts in Computer... - The fonts show perfectly in iPad but they do not work in the computer (OS X) making it very difficult specially for the ies and the tees. But I do have lots of fun and play it a lot. It is really good. The best is that you can read words definitions with one click. Thank you.

Desperate for Scrabble but…. - ….this is frustrating. No ability to trade in tiles. Or skip a turn. Would also love an undo action. Sigh. At least there is SOMEONE out there who is trying to meet the needs of the Mac OSX users who are sans Scrabble.

Scrabble substitute - As my Hasbro official Scrabble doesn’t work anymore, and they are not making a new online edition, this will have to do. For the price, it’s okay, but it makes mostly four letter words, not much of a challenge and you can’t skip a turn.

Review by JBpsych

Only worth 99 cents... - The game is designed so that the computer can pick any word, even breaking the rules, like foreign words. Second issue is the computer player is designed to win by blocking. A very unsportsmanlike tactic (and quite boring). Third issue is there are words that are apprpriate like el or en or jo that are not allowed for the human player. Very poorly designed game. I’m glad I only spent 99 cents.

Review by BWisalreadytakensoImusingthis

Not a great Scrabble substitute - I miss my Hasbro Scrabble computer game, but it won't play on my MacBookPro. Mr. Word is OK, but it will not let me use words I know are valid and are in the Scrabble Lexica that I also bought. It also won't let me use a lot of 2 letter words that Scrabble used to let me use, and are valid words. I feel Mr. Word is a bit buggy, and sometimes crashes.

Review by SBUPSET

Mr word - I love scrabble,, so I am glad to find this game. Yet, in this game, abbreviations, initials, prefixes, etc. are not allowed. Also, if you have to pass a turn, unable to make a word with your letters….You had the Same letters. The letters you use stay the same. Good games, but needs revisions to play the game by the rules.
