CONTEST WINNERS: And the winners of a FREE COPY of Wordcaster are... djlegend, mrfreeze574, saechuck, ywbyun, betavirus, Tokek, tylermckenzie, fyrfyter, Jrosephoto, and radube. You will receive an email from Nickel Budy with your free copy! *

Nickel Buddy released an updated version of their popular BlackBerry game Wordcaster today... In case you're not familiar, Wordcaster is a word game where you connect adjacent letter tiles to form words. Some tiles are red hot, and if you don't use them in a word, they will burn the tile below them each turn until they reach the bottom. If a red tile reaches the bottom, the game is over. Special tiles give the ability to cast spells, such as swapping tiles, or changing their letter. It's challenging and it's FUN.

Wordcaster is available from ShopCrackBerry.com for $9.99, and a free trial is available.

CONTEST - WIN A FREE COPY OF WORDCASTER!
I absolutely LOVE this game (Warning: it's ADDICTING), so we hooked up TEN free copies to give away to CrackBerry.com readers. To get in on your chance to win, be logged into CrackBerry.com and leave a Comment on this Blog Post!

Not sure what to comment? Why not download a FREE TRIAL of Wordcaster, and let everyone know your thoughts, tips and high scores! You have until this Sunday, Midnight CST to get in on the contest. I'll update this post come Monday morning with the winning usernames. Instructions are posted after the jump, so you can get the most out of the game immediately.  

Wordcaster Instructions: Type out words by using the keyboard, or by selecting them with the trackball. The Delete key erases the last letter, and the Enter key submits a word to be scored. If multiple words are possible, use the trackball to rotate between word possibilities.

Some tiles are wrapped in a colored ribbon. Use these tiles in a word and gain the use of a corresponding spell:

  • Red is MIX and allows you to scramble all the letters on the board, though it also introduces a red hot fire tile.
  • Green is SWAP, which allows you to swap any 2 adjacent tiles.
  • Blue is SHIFT, which allows you to change the letter of a tile up or down 1 position in the alphabet.

Enjoy Wordcaster! Good Luck on the Contest!!

I was actually pleasently surprised by this game.
I was expecting something that would be entertaining for a small amount of time and then become mundane and boring.

However this game is a lot of fun. Definitely love the trial version...would LOVE to win a full copy...hint...hint

I love to play word puzzles and scrabble, and this is just a great game to play when you have a few idle minutes - even at work while you are downloading other software for your BB.
Lots of fun. Thanks, Susanne

islandgirl69#CB

Quite addictive, wouldn't mind having it and putting the money in the gas tank.

abdala_24

Sounds like a good game. I'm going to download the trial.

thescottjones

Brickbreaker pales in comparison to this game.

The full version would be better, though....

knightforge#CB

This game is great. It is sooo addicting. I'm hooked.

besiderself

I use BKW and enjoy it, especially the relaxed play option: I'm not a speed demon and usually just use my games to keep from being bored when waiting for an appointment.

Does Wordcaster have a relaxed play type mode?

besiderself

Kronk

Definitely gotta get this game!

GrkBMWQT

Just downloaded the free trial!!! It's so addicting and it stimulates your brain, especially now during the summer when we may not be using our minds as much!!! LOL!

dudebrown

If I win this might be my new fav....

windchime516#CB

Its one of those games you love to keep playing coz it is not just about mindless action. It involves quick wit, creative strategy and of course, a more than average amount of word knowledge. Buy hey, if you dont, this game can help you with that! Very challenging, and it does not just help you pass away waiting times, but it is very entertaining. Word games will always be a favorite i guess in any game genre...so how i wish Blackberry would put these kind of games in their units instead of the likes of brickbreaker.

Thank you for letting us try!

cables3

I can't wait to play!

dkear

Just commenting for my chance to win. Looks like a addictive game!

Snazzberry

My berry is so empty right now! I totally deserve it. Pretty please????

CrackCurve56

How should I put this? Okay, I'm an addictive personality, and I would prefer being addicted to this terrific word game rather than, let's say, actual drugs, cigarettes, or pills. :) So, how about helping this poor addict? Here's hoping I win a free copy of a great game, Wordcaster. :)

mcmullinmcm

Always looking for something else to do while sitting at the airport. Too bad AT&T can't take their focus off the iphone 3G issues long enough to release a real player!

everlast316

This game looks awesome! I've been trying to find some good games to occupy my downtime at work. Thanks!

love_my_phoenix_girl

Im a sudoku junky and after a few hours of playing all i see are numbers. Hopefully I get just as addicted to this game so Ill have some letters to go with the numbers.

Gruntster

My wife loves word games even more than I do, if I lose my Curve over this.....I'll, uhmmm, I'll...have to get another!

RobertFC

Is there any way of playing on bigger grids? Six letter words are cool and all, but finding longer words might be even cooler.

bosco500

On my way to get the trial...

bomba

WARNING: VERY VERY VERY ADDICTING!!!
play once every time you are bored, some side affects may include loss of free time, hours passing, and loss of battery life!

dharp72

I absolutely LOVE word games, I can't wait until I win it.

TCann

I love good word games and like the mental challenge that is not always found in other games. I own Bookworm and am currently addicted to Big Kahuna Words by magmic.com. This is a great game with lots of flexibility, many levels and is visually impressive. I am patiently waiting for the availability of Word Mole and will give Wordcaster a try in the meantime. I would love to win a copy!!

gobears72

What a way to improve one's spelling and vocabulary!

edymond

Hey, where the white women at?

WRLDEDITION

Hey thanks very much for some free copies :-) Hope I get one. Im looking for the next game with a crack quality

First wordcaster, next .....Texttwist ?

Thought I would leave a comment to see if I would get a free copy. Just about to dl the trial to see if it plays as good as it looks.

Looks super and looks as if it would be as good if not better than others

KhaosGT

nefer988

It looks really cool. Can't wait to try it. I just love those word games

stepchild

I'm not sure about this game. You see I am an old retired guy and my brain has gone out to pasture. And this game looks like it might hurt what brain I have left. But, if I was so lucky to win, I would surely give it a try.

linkkoriri

I've been dying for a good game on my Black Berry Pearl! This looks like it will be a great time killer, and awesomely addictive! I am going to download the trial asap. If I am lucky enough to win the free copy I'd be estatic! If not congrats to the winners :D.

TTFN!

Scarlett

I downloaded Wordcaster today and sat down to watch a movie. I made the mistake of picking up my curve to just check the game out. Two hours later the movie was over and I have no clue what it was about. Wordcaster took over and there was no stopping!

rvpals

Looks very interesting. Great find.
