We have got news for all Word Mole addicts. Thanks to a comment from Miles we found out that there actually is a Word Mole version for another operating system than Blackberry. Word Mole can now be purchased from Apples App Store for $2,99 developed by Aqeel Abbas for Earth Eagle INC. Since there often have been reported fake apps and bogus merchandise Thomas and I did some research to test this Word Mole version. Here is our conclusion.

What do other people think of Word Mole for iPhone

The customer ratings in Apples App Store seemed to be quite promising. About 150 people voted an average of 4 out of 5 stars. The written ratings can be found in a wide range from horrible by Soxs0307etx to phenomenal by Moswald201. If you take a closer look you will find out that nearly all comments are negative and their authors rated Word Mole for iPhone with only one star. Here are some exapmles:

 I bought this app impulsively due to excitement of seeing the word mole app and the description. Do not waste time or money. Upsetting to say the least.

However, there are also people who love this game and can not understand all this criticism. To give you an idea of some positive ratings here are a few examples:

It is good, but not as good as the Blackberry one. I also do not see anything wrong with the app. It works perfectly fine.

What do we think of Word Mole for iPhone

I am not a Blackberry user so I can’t compare Word Mole for iPhone with the original game. Nevertheless, I can state my opinion on this game on it’s one. To put it in a nutshell this word game is quite okay but it doesn’t knock me off my heels.
To be fair, it is not that boring because you still have to build words from letters under time pressure. The layout is alright and I just love the concept of a mole digging for words. If you ask me most of the rules of the original Blackberry game are converted in this version as well: the vegetable bonus letters, the watering can, et cetera.
Different to some experience reports my screen did not freeze or any kind of music distracted me. To test some words and to find out if our word lists can be used playing Word Mole for iPhone I consulted our word finder. I have not noticed any inconsistency either.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the mode to play in a multi-player game. That was the charm of this game. The only way open to us is to wait until all bugs are fixed and more features are available for Word Mole for iPhone.

  1. I am upset that I actually paid for the frustration of playing this game. Why? 1) the screen locks up often, 2)it comes with no instructions 3)most frustrating of all is that it tells me I have entered a word that does not exist…what dictionary does this game use? This game doesn’t compare to the version I had on my blackberry. I would not recommend it.

  2. Hi MimicoGirl,
    thank you for your helpful comment. We also hope that there will be another Word Mole clone for iPhone we can recommend without hesitation.

  3. I play word mole on my iPhone. I cannot seem to unlock the bonus points I receive in the vegetable gardens. The bonus points have accumulated from one game to the next and the total number appears next to the trophy in the bottom right corner of the screen. When I used to play word mole on blackberry, the points would automatically be added to my score. The bonus points on the iPhone version seem useless since they do not get added to the game score. Any way to make use of the points? How do I “unlock” them?

  4. Hi Jennifer,
    are you playing the Word Mole clone by Earth Eagle INC.? I just tried to download this version again, but it’s not available anymore.
    There is another acceptable Word Mole alternative called Word Weasel where the bonus system works well. We presented this version some time ago:
    I will inform you as soon as I have any other news on this issue.

  5. hi i play words mole every day on my blackberry ,but a few days ago i got water on my phone now it dont work any more ,have been searching the internet today to see if it was their but have no luck with it .why not put it on the computer for every to play for free .hoping that it will be avaiable soon .awesome game .
