Bookworm for Nintendo DS/DSiWare lets you expand your vocabulary on the go in this portable version of this PopCap classic.

Bookworm for Nintendo DS and DSiWare features all of the action and visual polish that Popcap customers have come to expect while providing new content and game-play tweaks especially for the handheld.
Enjoy three brain-boosting game modes: Classic, Action and Multiplayer. Find all of the words in 20 collection books. Customize your game backgrounds with the libraries you've built. Pick up and play — start working wordy wonders in seconds. Unlimited levels to keep you rising up the ranks in the Hall of Fame. Boost scores and advance faster with Bonus Words and Reward Tiles. Learn the meanings of words you may not know along the way. Save your high scores and best words for posterity. Take the mind-sharpening fun of this hit word game anywhere you go! Build 18 uniquely themed library rooms that range from Technology to Children's Books.
Classic – Drag your stylus over adjacent letter tiles to spell words. Longer words will generate more points and bonus tiles. Shorter words will generate fire tiles. If a fire tile reaches the bottom of the board, it's game over for you and Lex. Action –Action mode is much like classic mode, but it moves at a faster pace. Fire tiles drop in from the top at random intervals forcing you to get rid of them quicker. Shorter words still generate fire tiles as well making this truly an Action mode.
Bookworm on the Nintendo DS offers both a single cart and multi-cart multiplayer experience via an ad-hoc connection (i.e. you can play with someone in the same room/car/etc.). Take turns making words to help Lex build a stack of books. The longer your words, the faster your book stack (which represents score) will grow. The first one to reach the goal height/score wins.
The DSiWare version of Bookworm is only available via the DSiWare downloadable service and includes ONLY Classic mode as described above. For more information, please refer to the Bookworm DS/DsiWare product comparison below. Feel free to ask questions as well.
