If there is one thing on this planet that is about as un-gamelike as it gets, it would have to be books.  The pages and pages of written word, while immensely entertaining for some, bore others (like yours truly) to absolute tears.  So how could you take this potential entertainment kryptonite and turn it into something that could be fun for everyone?  Why not try turning it into a game?

Cuing on this logic, a developer has actually gone out and made an action game that uses pages of words as a tapestry for gaming amusement.  As improbable as it may seem, WordMan is a free title that offers players numerous chapters of page turning challenges, all of which can be played through on three different difficulty levels.  To top things off, players will have the option to choose from three different super-heroes, complete with their own unique word-traversing super-powers.

Check out the trailer for the game below and let us know if you pick it up in the comments.  I am curious to see if it lives up to the excitement!
