This is an ad-supported free version of ZipWord.
ZipWord is a fast-paced blend of speed and vocabulary. Connect the letters Boggle®-style (vertically, horizontally, or diagonally) to form words of three letters or longer by dragging your finger from one tile to the next. Valid words are removed and new letters fall into place when you lift your finger.
Compile words and beat the clock to the next level! More letters per word means more points. Higher levels increase points as well. Guessing wrong takes time away.
