Defend yourself from the attacking ships by using your letter tiles to build a defensive wall. Fire back, repair damage, and keep the game going as long as you can in single or multiplayer survival mode. Play the built-in challenges to show off your skills, and get achievement points if you win!
Check out the video demo at our website: www.accioapps.com/games
Build your wall:
Tap or drag letter tiles to spell words into the empty spaces, and accept your word to add it into your wall. To see all the space you have to work with, swipe your finger from side to side across the wall to scroll.
Shoot the cannons:
Fire back on the pirate ships by spelling more words. Tap ships to target them, create a word, and then tap the ship to fire. You can repair your broken cannons by spelling a word of a specific length into them.
Play your way:
Build your wall, forge cannon balls to sink the ships, or try to keep up while doing it all! Try multiplayer cooperative mode to team up with your friends and work on different challenges. Youβll get achievements and climb the leader boards the longer you survive.
See how long you can last β the game ends when all your cannons are gone.
Show off your skills with Game Center achievements and leader boards. You can pick a friend to play with for co-operative multiplayer, or be matched with another Game Center user automatically.
Tips and tricks:
β’ Longer words make stronger walls and cause more damage to the ships, so try to use as many tiles in each word as you can!
β’ Bigger ships are harder to defeat, so target them to focus all your ammo in one place
β’ Shake to get different letter tiles
β’ Control sound effects in settings
β’ Pause and resume without losing your progress
You can play a round of Word Lubbers between subway stops, while youβre waiting in line, or whenever you want something to keep you busy for a few minutes. Itβs so addicting youβll want to play it again and again!
