From GameBrew - a wiki dedicated to Video Game Homebrew.
WordUp! is a homebrew puzzle game for the DS. In WordUp!, gamers use the stylus to connect letter into English words.
A word must be at least three characters long and they can be horizontal, vertical, and diagonal. They can also read forward or backward.
Once blocks are correctly connected to form a word, they will disappear form the screen. If a column of blocks fill up the screen, the game is over. The game contains two game modes: WordUp!, which is an open ended game; the other mode, Arcade, features a level progression.
Superpanic says this version of WordUp! has a few missing features:
- The game sound effects is working but the music is missing
- "Options" under the menu does not work yet
- No pause function button (to pause the game close the lid of the DS)
- No file system for saving high scores and the scores are reset on reboot
The new release has a new much larger dictionary, updated graphics, music (composed exclusively for the game by Syphus), hiscore save, timed full column warnings, awards, options and much more.
