1. 《Words With Friends》
2. 《Typing Maniac》
这款打字游戏属于电子游戏中较少见的类型，起初出现于日本，游戏拥有大批忠实粉丝。《致命一击》也属于这类游戏，是《死亡之屋》的另一版本，在这款游戏中玩家杀死僵尸的武器不是子弹，而是其触屏打字技能，后来还出现《致命一击 2》和《Typing of the Date》。如今Metro Games推出的《Typing Maniac》将打字的乐趣带到了Facebook平台。
4. 《Word Challenge》
若玩家愿意掏钱购买付费内容，游戏还设有3个未解锁的模式：practice、turbo和word grid。Practice给予玩家充足游戏时间，word grid模式同《Pathwords》相似，而turbo属于比较困难的版本，玩家享有较少时间。
5. 《Word Buster》
《Word Buster》在文字游戏中属于颇有趣味的游戏内容（游戏邦注：游戏出自Games Loop之手）。游戏向玩家提供3个初始字母，例如“nom”，玩家要以这3个字母开组出可能多的单词，“nominal”、“nominee”和“nomad”都符合要求，而“nomnomnom”显然算不上一个单词。
育碧的《经典文字游戏》包含4个迷你游戏，据说第5个迷你游戏“Wordfall”即将问世。“Hangman”是个标准的猜字游戏，“ABC Magnets”和“Pull-Pull”则是类似《Word Challenge》的拼字游戏（“ABC Magnets”包含标准的6个字母，而“Pull-Pull”则更具挑战性，包含16个字母）。 第4个游戏“Mumble”包含4个字母，要求玩家组出包含这4个字母的单词，例如，若玩家手头的字母是A、N、S和D，那么就可以是“sand”，或是更长的“sandcastles”。这略显幼稚，显然主要瞄准儿童群体，但若玩家能够完成体验，这些迷你游戏其实相当精致，颇具趣味。（本文为游戏邦/gamerboom.com编译，如需转载请联系：游戏邦）
Top 7 Facebook Word Games
by Emma Boyes
Word games and Facebook go well together — they’re an interesting diversion that you can play in a spare five or ten minutes and the desire to publicly prove you’re cleverer than the rest of your friends makes them even more fun. There are plenty to choose from, including what seems like several hundred different versions of anagram finder games and Scrabble — but here is a selection of some of the best.
1. Words With Friends
This is the latest title from Facebook giants Zynga and is basically Scrabble without the brand name. While only two players, you’re still presented with a familiar board and seven random letters. You’ll need to make a word out of those letters, and if you’re sly you’ll also be sure to place it on one of the bonus squares strategically placed throughout the grid. DW means you’ll get a double word score and TL means triple letter score on that square, for example. Once you’ve placed your word, it’s over to your opponent, who will add theirs in real time and send the ball back to you.
As it’s an incredibly popular game with 12 million users, you’ll probably have no problems finding a friend who’s already playing. But don’t be put off if you don’t actually have any friends (or at least, ones on Facebook that you can rope into playing with you) — ignore the ‘with friends’ part, you can also play against a random opponent if you so wish.
2. Typing Maniac
The typing game is one of those strange genres of video games that originated in Japan and has accrued something of a cult following. There’s the Typing of the Dead, a version of the House of the Dead where instead of bullets you kill zombies with your spectacular touch typing skills, and later The Typing of the Dead II and Typing of the Date (a date sim), to name but a few. And now Typing Maniac by Metro Games brings the joy of typing to your Facebook account.
You play as what looks like a rather overworked librarian, desperately trying to clear a stack of paperwork before they are literally buried underneath it. Words drop from the top of the screen and you need to type them out correctly before they hit the bottom. Some words contain power-ups like fire, which destroys all the words on the screen and ice, which freezes everything and gives you some time to play catch-up.
It’s strangely addictive and you might be surprised at how many of your friends are already playing.
Another entry from Zynga, in Pathwords you’re given a grid of letters and have to make words of three letters or more by making a chain through them. Longer words get you a higher score. The game seems to be fairly forgiving about the kind of words it allows, which is just as well since it becomes increasingly difficult to continue through the game as a disproportionate amount of vowels seem to drop into the grid.
When you start playing, you’re shown the high scores for all your Facebook friends who have already played and a big part of the fun is getting good enough at the game to displace them all and claw your way to the number one spot. You can also pick a friend and challenge them directly.
4. Word Challenge
In Playfish’s Word Challenge, you’re given six letters and your task is to make as many words of three letters or more from these six letters as you can muster in a certain amount of time. Each word you correctly find nets you points and if you manage to find a long word, you also earn a bit of extra time. You can play one of the 40,000 sets of letters against yourself to beat your high-score or you can challenge your friends to both play through the same letter set and see who wins.
There are also three unlockable modes if you’re willing to throw down some cash for the premium content: practice, turbo and word grid. Practice mode gives you all the time in the world, word grid is a mode like Pathwords and turbo is a harder version of the game with less time on the clock.
5. Word Buster
Word Buster is an interesting take on the word game genre. Developed by Games Loop, the game gives you three starting letters, for example ‘nom’ and you need to make as many words that start with those three letters as you can. So, you could have words like ‘nominal’, ‘nominee’ or ‘nomad’ although I was surprised to find out that ‘nomnomnom’ apparently does not count as a proper word.
As far as multiplayer options go, it’s a little underdeveloped — you can, for example, play tournaments, but to do this you need to buy your way in. It’s very much a game that you play for five minutes every so often, but it’s a fun five minutes that gives your brain cells a workout.
There are several Hangman variations available to play on Facebook, but this one gives the game a unique twist — the words you have to guess are the names of your Facebook friends. To start the game you must decide how lucky you’re feeling and choose the number of rounds you want to play (between 10 and 50). You’re then presented with blank spaces and must guess their name letter by letter. If you make too many wrong letter guesses, tough luck, you just killed your friend.
Obviously this game works better if you have a fair amount of Facebook friends– probably you’d need at least 200 to make it enough of a challenge.
7. Classic Word Games
Ubisoft’s Classic Word Games currently features four different mini-games to play with a fifth called Wordfall allegedly coming soon. Hangman is, as you’ve probably guessed, a standard Hangman game, ABC Magnets and Pull-Pull are anagram games like Word Challenge (ABC magnets has the standard six letters whereas Pull-Pull is more of a challenge with 16). The fourth game, Mumble, gives you four letters and challenges you to make words that contain all those letters, so for example if you had A, N, S and D you could make ‘sand’, or for more points ‘sandcastles’. It’s a little bit childish and obviously aimed at young children, but if you can get past that the mini-games are well-done and fun.（Source：gamepro）
