Word Peril combines elements of multiple game genres and packs them into one addictive, fast-paced, and fun game.
Guess the puzzle (without going bankrupt) by using visual and textual cues from within the game. You begin with $2000 virtual dollars. You are rewarded $100 for each correct guess. If you guess incorrectly, you'll put yourself in jeopardy by losing $400 for each missed letter. Successfully completing the mystery word or phrase nets you $200.
Use your Free Letter and Skip Puzzle tokens sparingly, as they are only refreshed upon reaching the next level.
Personal High Scores and Global High Scores (participation optional) are available so you can compete against yourself as well as the world!
Word Peril features over 6,000 puzzles including these categories:
Film & TV
History & Politics
Music & the Arts
Science & Technology
The puzzle list touches on almost every topic imaginable -- no bland puzzles here, just the most important figures and events from pop culture, music, and history.
