Word Mole

Last month when I was in Florida attending WES I reported back that more games would be shipping on the BlackBerry Bold than just Brick Breaker. In addition to everybody's favorite time killer, the version 4.6 operating system on the Bold would ship with Word Mole, Texas Hold 'Em 2, Sudoko, and Klondike. The last three are Magmic titles, while Word Mole is a Plazmic creation.

Will one of these games be the next Brick Breaker? Jibi thinks Word Mole might just have what it takes, especially if you're into the "educational yet fun" sort of thing. He posted some screen caps of Word Mole on the BlackBerry Bold, so take a look at this Scrabble Meets Whack-a-Mole game and start drooling for the Bold's release in anticpation.

First Look at Word Mole on the BlackBerry Bold!

17 Comments

I may be drooling for the Bold, but "Crawl" and Super Monkey Ball and Band on the iPhone are hands down the best mobile games I have seen so far.

Sorry, BlackBerry till I die, but the keynote from WWDC impressed me.

Game Developers are giving the effort on the iphone that they are is because of the distribution system. ipods sell because of itunes. If half of the information, apps, ringtones etc. were right at my finger tips the moment that I install BB desktop manager or the uninformed user then bb would have taken the right step towards the consumer sector that they want

AFTER PURCHASING THE BB STORM AND BEING A PRIOR ADDICT TO BRICK BREAKER, I FIND WORD MOLE EVERY BIT AS CHALLENGING, THE ONLY DRAWBACK IS ITS SEEMINGLY LIMITED DICTIONARY. AFTER ONLY PLAYING FOR A WEEK, I HAVE FOUND AT LAST FORTY WORDS THAT WHERE NOT INCLUDED, THERE SHOULD BE A FUNCTION TO EITHER ADD WORDS MANUALLY OR TO UPGRADE TO A REVISED DICTIONARY.

Can someone tell me about the seasons and what is the vegetables picking thing? I must be doing something wrong, I get 5 or 6 out of 15 or 16. tell me about the seasons and I cant submit my high score.
Thank you,
Twinbrook

I don't get that either. One time I got 43, don't know why it lasted so long, all other times I get between 28-30. What is the secret here? And no, I can't submit my high scores either.

hey everybody,
I recently got a blackberry storm from a friend and I have since become addicted to word mole. my question is can I get it on my blackberry curve 8310??

This game does not have many words.. It sucks when you spend all the time to spell that word and its tells u "word not found"..I wish I can update dictionary somehow.

I agree with SANLIGHT's comment above. I just joined your chat system to be able to complain about the very poor dictionary Wordmole has. Can't you just link it up to a decent dictionary? Just this morning I was denied use of Manhandle, Notary, faXX, FuXX, and many more I have not kept note of. The Spanish version is even worse - really limited. A great concept of a game but a poor and very frustrating execution.

I was playing, had high score and phone went down. Had to remove battery and now the whole game is gone from my phone along with my call log icon.

I agree. I love to play word mole but I'm getting pretty annoyed at wracking my brain to come up with a word only to find it's not a real word in the word mole dictionary but put in any name from abby to walt or zack and they accept names as words, so what's that all about? Another "No Brainer" why even have the option of submitting your high score if you aren't able to submit it? And while I'm ranting &raving,is it just ME or do you get the word all spelled out and hit submit and it just kicks you out with that game over and the points you have are lower then the ones on the right side and once again your at level one!1! I mean who made this dictionary and where can we submit a change to fix these problems really soon ? Am I whining or what?

I find the lack of real words in the Word Mole dictionary to be highly frustrating as well.
Who handles these fixes?????

well once you beat the high score on your phone the game automatically saves it the only catch is that you cant put your name on it and in the near future i would hope they would expand the dictionary but on the good note i love the game

I have had my blackberry curve for only three days now and have been playing word mole NON STOP. Due to my excessive usage it has now frozen on me and I cannot seem to get it to work. Is there some way I can uninstall it or anything to reset it so this problem will be fixed?

Hi,
does anyone here knows the official site to Word Mole? i am trying to find the origin source of this game maker. Indeed, it is an addictive game.
