Introducing Word Wanderer for Word Game EnthusiastsFree Online Game From Posit Science Brings New Challenge to a Classic Genre (September 29, 2009)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/29/09 -- Word Wanderer(TM) offers a fun and novel twist on the classic word game. In Word Wanderer, a user guides an animated character named Jack through the forest by building words from the tile tray on the magical board. The goal of the game is to earn points by placing a total of 50 letters on the board in the shortest amount of time. The game adapts the level of play based on a user's previous turn; the better a player does the more letter tiles they must use and thus the game becomes more difficult. Conversely, if a person is having difficulty, the letter tiles decrease and Word Wanderer becomes a little easier to encourage game play. This adaptive component is critical to promote brain fitness and not routinely found in online word games.
Most puzzles and word games require quick thinking, a well-developed vocabulary and strong general language skills. Word Wanderer works to encourage the development of these very skills but with adaptive difficulty levels that encourage repeat usage.
Word Wanderer was developed by Posit Science®, the leader in brain fitness software programs, clinically proven to help people think faster, focus better and remember more. The game is available for free on PCs or Macs at http://www.wordwanderer.com/.
