PopCap Announces Bookworm Adventures 2

Bookworm Adventures was the followup to the now classic hit casual word game, Bookworm. It basically took the original Bookworm formula & threw a dash of RPG in the mix. Your adventure with Lex the worm has you guiding him through various levels, battling enemies along the way. Your ‘weapon’ is your words, doing damage to your enemies by forming words in the classic Bookworm letter grid. The longer the word, the more damage you do.  You’ll also have various power-ups & other types of attacks to contend with. It was released for the PC back in 2006. Now, in a few weeks, the sequel will be released. Once again, you’ll guide Lex through a variety of books, meeting & battling many different literary characters along the way.

New Features in Bookworm Adventures 2 include:

  • 3 all-new books of ten chapters each: “Fractured Fairytales,” “The Monkey King” and “Astounding Planets”!
  • All-new infinite Replay mode! Pick a book, fight foes and score big points!
  • 6 mini-games, including all-new “Mutant Words,” “Golden Coins” and “Word Up”!
  • Battle more than 130 ferocious new foes while wielding over 20 terrific new treasures!
  • Companions! Literary figures join Lex and battle by his side!
  • Rainbow Tiles! New potent wild card tiles allow you to build the gigantic words of your dreams!
  • Arena mode! Spell quickly to defeat your toughest enemies!
  • Achievements – earn trophies, points and badges!

List price will be $19.95 & it’ll have both a trial & a full version for both PC & Mac, available through PopCap’s web site…UPDATE: PopCap just sent in the correction saying that the Mac version will not be available. PC only…
