Trace Word Game app review: the most beautiful and uncheatable word game ever made



Bringing a fresh new spin to the genre of word games is this awesome development which has you tracing your finger across tiled letters to create words, earning coins and racking up some almighty high scores as you compete against your Facebook and Twitter friends online.

I must confess that when I first looked at this game I didn’t have particularly high expectations, probably because I’m very shallow when it comes to the appearance of apps!

Trace Word Game actually looks pretty good when you get into it, and as for the gameplay itself, well, all I can say is that I want to get this review over and done with so I can settle down and play a few rounds by myself!

In other words, I love it!

Without a Trace

When you first begin playing Trace Word Game, you’ll be prompted to create a user account so that you can gain some bonus coins and connect with your friends and family online.

You can simply play offline if you’d prefer but you can use your Facebook account to create a user so this should only take a couple of seconds to do.

One thing I really like about this game is that there is a guide which pops up from time to time when you visit a section of the interface for the first time. This is great as it clearly explains the various features, and there is also a button enabling you to stop the guide forever with a couple of taps.


Wonderfully Original Game

Summing up the basic concept of this game is quite easy. You’ll be presented with a grid of tiles, each with a letter on it. Your task is to trace your finger along conjoining letters to create words, hopefully many letters as possible.

Certain tiles will also have bonuses attached to them, and you can combine bonus tiles to rack up even more points, earning coins and, of course, bragging rights with your friends.

All in all, this is a very fun game, and it’s definitely one of the better developments of its kind within the genre. I’m very impressed with Trace Word Game and would definitely recommend that you guys check it out.
