The word game genre isn't as common as the block matching puzzler or the physics puzzler. It tends to tickle a very specific part of the brain, and not everyone is a words person.

But we do love a good word game here at PG. You might expect that given that many of us write words for a living. But a good word game can transcend the level of your vocabulary and simply prove fun to play in its own right.

Interestingly, the following word draw an agreeable number of elements from other genres. Some take from the block puzzler genre, others the physics puzzler genre. Some are more like narrative adventures or RPGs than puzzlers.

That's why our best Android word game list is a lot more varied than you might think. Even if you don't think you like word games, we guarantee (well, we suspect) you'll like a few of these.
