Worcle Worlds for Nintendo 3DS by Lightwood Games

"I received a free sample of the game 
in exchange for writing a review on my blog"

Finally, a new 3DS puzzle game is coming! October 26th, 2017 will be the first day of the new release game, Worcle Worlds by Lightwood Games. This is a puzzle game that you will enjoy playing with friends or family. It's a new type of game that really allows you to show how good you are at making words of 3 or more. Depending on the world you might be completing, it does get trickier. With a total of ten worlds to visit, you'll have many changes with the letters you can use during gameplay, making it even more difficult and fun!
The game is quite different to the many word games out there. Of course, the name is unique as well but really fits the game perfectly. Worcle being the first part of the name of the game, is actually the short version of saying "Words in a Circle", which is quite fitting to the design. It does remind me of playing Bust-A-Move with the addition of letters in these circles. Except how you play, is quite different. You are actually throwing those bubbles with letters in them into a round circle, and instead of breaking the circles or like bubbles with the exact color, you will be trying to form words, 3 or more.
Without a doubt, this game is still very fun for a word type puzzle game and really helps build skills. I feel I can pull out more words that I never knew before. Plus, begin able to learn from them or even just spell them right, I'm gaining some more knowledge while I play. After each word is made, you are rewarded with points and bonus points depending on a number of letters, the amount cleared in one completion, special bubbles, and many other factors. At the end, after completing each level, making the total of  50 words, you can easily check out your top score on the leaderboard and see where you stand. Even if you compete with another by hosting a word battle or online friends from all over, you'll be able to tell where you rank with all the points you racked up.
Of course, this game doesn't just include a visual, but it also includes a pleasant variety of music for each world, which is very relaxing and makes you feel calm while playing. The colors, by the way, are also calming to the eyes. The use of cool tone colors are soothing and simply with the two, music and scene, creates for a quite a relaxing game to play. I actually feel that I get lost while playing and can continue to play for hours. The only thing that makes it a bit less calming is when adding a friend or playing against another online. At this point, you'll get a little more pep in your gameplay, due to the fear of them trying to beat you. Plus, with the different worlds to choose from and forming words with the letters can become a bit difficult and a tiny bit more challenging!
Naturally, if you do decide to play against another player, you will be able to keep an eye on there score with the screen above on your system. This will give you an idea where they rank with the points and a total number of words they have completed so far. There is one thing to remember, which I feel is true while playing, never rush a word. You aren't being timed and can easily get a better word by correctly positioning the letters in the circle. The one thing you don't want is to end up with doing is having your letters fill the circle, as this will end the game. So take your time and you'll be able to get a better score and move on with no problem. 
Finally, this is a fun game that builds your concentration, focus, and helps you learn to use words and correct spelling. From experience, I know when my mom would play a game like scrabble before her shift at work It has really helped her to use words that I never knew existed. Therefore, this left her with the ability to beat many who challenge her on the board or online and widen her vocab.  So with a game like this, you can really help build from what you know and possibly become a bit smarter and well focused.
