Welcome to the homepage.




Ack!words is an new word/puzzle game that requires creativity, strategy, and good spelling. To play, you connect adjacent letters (in any direction) to each other to form words. When you find a word, the letters are removed from the board and the letters above fall down. The object is to make large words, using hard letters while unltimately clearing the board.

It's actually harder than it sounds. To clear the board, it takes strategy to have the right mix of letters at the end to use them all up. Making high valued words requires planning to move the letters into position. Of course, creativity is always needed to see words in the jumble of letters.
