Word Galaxies seems like a winner if your into word jumbles. I got hooked and played it well into the morning, but I have to admit I just can't get myself to spend the money. That probably says more about my cheapness than the game! Graphics and sound are solid and I didn't experience any crashes. The concept is good and having incentives like the 'star' are nice as you rack your brain for that specific word. My only complaint is the prevalence of words that people just won't know unless you play scrabble or read the dictionary. I'm not sure how to avoid that though. Overall, a nice effort. If it shows up on the MacUpdate promo, I will definitely purchase.

As games go,this one IS a bit of a yawn. Ok, maybe kids might get into it...or adults without imagination, but it does get old pretty quickly.
I'd say that World Galaxies doesn't reflect much creative thinking or imagination on the part of the developer.
And for $19.95, you don't really get all that much....yeh, it's definitely overpriced. $5, or maybe $8, is all its worth IMHO.
As a previous reviewer stated, you can do a lot better if you want to spend $19.95 on a game. And even if you want to spend a lot less. And even if you're looking for a freebie.

i love this game!!

it's basically a computer version of the jumble games in the newspaper. (my favorite)

our relatives are still here for thanksgiving ,and we had everyone around the computer yelling out words!

it's been keeping the kids occupied all night, making this the most relaxing thanksgiving i can remember!

(so, at the very least, it's a great babysitter!!)

We hope you enjoy our first game. The object of the game is, well, to unscramble all the words. Not too complex, right? It all takes place in outer space, with twinkling stars, crisp moons, constellations, heavenly planets... you know, bling. But under the hood, it's all about the anagrams, baby!!

Word Galaxies is kind of a reverse-Scrabble, a mish-mash between the traditional jumble and an anagram scramble. If you're a fiend for classic games like Boggle and newspaper puzzles, then this game is right up your alley. We had fun making it, and we play it pretty much non-stop. (Can you say 700,000 points?!)

Well, that's all I can think of to say... download it and give it spin today, and let us know how you like it.

Best, -John

The graphics and music are pleasant but that's all this turkey's got going for it. I played it for a bit but got bored really quickly. There's just not much(if any) sizzle...I could find nothing, at all, to hold my interest for more than a few minutes.
At $19.95, it's rediculously overpriced.
There are plenty of games available that offer a lot more for that price, and many that offer more and at a much lower price.
This dud's not worth more than $5, or better yet, it should be offered free of charge.
