'Bookworm Adventures 2' Announced

by Rainier on July 15, 2009 @ 6:21 a.m. PDT

Bookworm Adventures 2 takes players into three new literary landscapes and adds reams of new features and fun touches to the most popular digital word game franchise of all time.

In the Bookworm Adventures series, players take on the role of Lex the bookworm, leading him through a series of well-known books and fictional characters which Lex must overcome by forming words from an ever-changing set of letter tiles. Making longer and more complex words gives Lex greater fighting prowess, while special "gem" letter tiles offer a range of power-up effects of their own. Various potions and treasures give Lex added power, defense, health, and dozens of other persistent or one-time abilities. In the new sequel, wild card "rainbow" tiles, 20 new treasures and zany literary "companions" - fictional animal allies including Mother Goose and the Cheshire Cat - all provide players with even more ways to spell S-U-C-C-E-S-S. Three new mini-games augment those from the original BWA, offering a total of six different "side quest" activities to earn additional potions and power-ups.

"Bookworm Adventures Volume 2 exceeds its predecessor both in wordy fun and goofy puns," said Tysen Henderson, Executive Producer at PopCap. "From the crazy book themes and brand-new game play to the powerful new 'companions' who join Lex on his adventure, Bookworm Adventures Vol. 2 takes the original word-game-with-light-role-playing-game play and runs in some exciting, funny new directions."

Key Features:

  • 3 all-new books of ten chapters each: "Fractured Fairytales," "The Monkey King" and "Astounding Planets"!
  • All-new infinite Replay mode! Pick a book, fight foes and score big points!
  • 6 mini-games, including all-new "Mutant Words," "Golden Coins" and "Word Up"!
  • Battle more than 130 ferocious new foes while wielding over 20 terrific new treasures!
  • Companions! Literary figures join Lex and battle by his side!
  • Rainbow Tiles! New potent wild card tiles allow you to build the gigantic words of your dreams!
  • Arena mode! Spell quickly to defeat your toughest enemies!
