Power Dr. Von Vocab’s crazy lab by spelling words as fast as you can.

Test your spelling skills in WildTangent’s new Word Science that gets players to pluck letters off a fast moving conveyor belt to build words in order to keep Dr. Von Vocab’s lab ticking over.

Each letter has individual point value, so the better the word, the better the score. If the time runs out before a word has been created the lab switches off – so players must be quick off the mark, collecting power-ups along the way such as blank tiles, time boosts, spellements plus more.

Spellements are tiles with more letters on them, meaning the player can earn more points and keep that generator running.

Matt Shea, head of WildTangent studios, said: “Our latest game for mobile, Word Science offers players of all ages a unique, fast-paced word spelling game with a scientific twist.

“Players choose their own boosts and can build points spelling short words quickly or long words that may take more time.”

Before each round, free boosts and power-ups can be chosen courtesy or sponsors provided by WildTangents ad platform, BrandBoost. They can then post their score to Facebook and compete against friends in weekly word spelling competitions.

Word Science is available now from the App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore and the WildTangent Games mobile games service.
