How to Play
Word Wipe is a fast, fun, and feverish game with a simple concept — you join tiles of individual letters together into lines to create words.
What makes Word Wipe puzzles unique is that you compete against a clock. This means that the faster you can turn letter combinations into words the more points you get.
General rules. Click and drag along a line of at least 3 letters to form a word. Release the mouse to submit. When you submit a word, you will get points. More complex words are worth more points.
NOTE: you can also select letters by clicking them one at a time. Click the last letter again to submit the word
Clear vertical or horizontal lines to complete the goal before the timer expires and the game ends.
Goal. The Word Wipe puzzle sets goals for how many lines you must clear and gives you a time allowance for you to achieve this.
NOTE: if you complete the goals, you score points and move up levels in your Word Wipe game. If you don't clear enough rows within the allocated time scale, then it's game over
Bombs. You can get 2 bombs by watching a reward video. You can drag Bonus Bombs on the grid to any letter, and it will remove the letter it’s placed on. Any tiles above the removed tile will drop down.
Keyboard control. You can save time with keyboard shortcuts available in the game.
Long words. Word Wipe gives you points for completing words on the letter tile board.
While it’s a great idea to get some quick wins to raise your confidence, if you want to score high during your Word Wipe game then you need to aim for words that are longer and more complicated.
So, a good strategy is to broaden your vocabulary before you play Word Wipe.
There are some great vocabulary apps that you can use to increase the number of words you can draw on when playing the game. This will give you the chance to find higher value words on the board.
Bonus bomb charge. Another brilliant tactic is to charge bonus bombs.
Bonus bombs provide a massive boost to your score because they allow you to clear a 3x3 block of tiles in one go. Using them can earn you thousands of points, putting you in a great position to finish with a high score.
Keep submitting words after you meet the goal to charge bonus bombs. After you reach 500 bonus points, you will receive a bonus bomb.
Difficulty. At each new level, the difficulty increases.
EXAMPLE: in level 1, you have 120 seconds to clear one vertical or horizontal line of letters. In level 2, you have 120 seconds to clear two vertical or horizontal lines of letters.
Additionally, after level 10, your time for each level is reduced by 10 seconds. For example, at level 11, you will need to clear 11 lines within 110 seconds, and, at level 12, you will need to clear 12 lines within 100 seconds.
At level 16, you would have 60 seconds to complete the level and this number would remain the same for the further levels in the game.
NOTE: the number of levels is unlimited
Three same letters. You can select and remove actual words or sequences of the same three letters in a row.
EXAMPLE: you can select O-O-O to remove it, but it will only bring you a small number of points
NOTE: the Word Length Multiplier doesn't apply to words or letter combinations like O-O-O that only contain identical letters

Here's an example of what you might find:
For each letter in the list below, a certain number of points are given. If the letter is not on the list below, then only 1 point is given.
C, M, P, T, U
D, R, S, H, I
The total number of points per word is calculated as the sum of the number of points for each letter multiplied by two, then multiplied by the length of the word:
score = (w + o + r + d) * 2 * Word Length;
EXAMPLE: because the word REACT contains 5 letters, the score = (2+1+1+4+4)*2*5 = 120 points
