One of our players described wordbase as
“Easy to learn – Hard to master”.
We want more of you to feel this way and therefore we offer a guided tour around the features of the wordbase universe. Below you’ll find a convenient step-by-step manual to guide you through the different possibilities in the game.
(1): After installing wordbase on your iPhone or Smartphone, open the app and start playing by entering your e-mail, log on to Game Center or Facebook. Create a profile using your e-mail address and select a password and a preferred username. If you wish, you can choose to add a profile picture to personalize your profile.
(2) Dedicate yourself with Premium or choose the free wordbase version to play
The game is available in a free and a premium version. The premium version allows you to play an unlimited number of simultaneous games, for as long as you make it on the battlefield. In the free version, only two games at a time is possible.
How to play
(3): To start a new game, tap the “New game” button. You can choose to challenge your best friend or a random opponent who shares your love for the game. You may choose to challenge the opponent through Facebook sign up or through Game Center.
(4) Spell your way across the board to your opponents base
Each player starts the game with a base, from which you can start spelling a word. Your job is to reach and conquer your opponent’s base, while protecting your own by cutting off your opponent. Form words and spell your way across the board. You can select letters in any direction: vertical, horizontal or diagonal. Only connected letters will do.
(5): If you’re in the middle of an epic battle, you may want to postpone other battle requests till later on. You can either resign the battle or simply delete it by swiping your opponent’s name to the left and tap “resign”, then “yes”. The resigned battle moves down to your score in the bottom and you can then repeat the procedure: swipe left on the opponent’s name and tap “delete”. If you want to decline a challenge, it’s the same thing that applies.
As a free user, you can play two games simultaneously, but if you share Wordbase on Facebook you get an extra free game. In order to get access to additional games, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to the premium version.
Changing the outcome of the game
(6): Make sure you use the special power-ups as they can change the outcome of the game. If you spell a word using a black tile, the word will explode and you conquer the nearby letters (we call it mine-blowing).
(7) Cut off your opponent’s word-string with a word of your own
Use your word to strategically cut off the opponent’s string of words and gain the upper hand in the game.
How to win
(8): Winning wordbase requires wits, knowledge and strategy. In order to win the game, you need to spell your way across the board and be the first to capture a letter from your opponent’s base.
