Word Games That Let You Battle Enemies

Word battle games let you use words as your weapons to defeat enemies. Spell out longer words for more damage as you battle in a single player campaign. These games emphasize single player.

Monsters have feelings too!

Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey

Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey

6864954 MANITOBA LTD.

Help the adorable grim reapers Grimm and Rose defeat monsters, ghosts, evil bunnies and more using the power of words!

Letter Quest is a turn-based RPG where players attack monsters by spelling words. But be careful since the monsters fight back by creating different letter tiles such as poison, plague, stone, and whirlwind, or steal your health, heal themselves, use critical attacks, and much, much more!

Features:

● 40 stages, with 4 unique ways to play each one
● Five separate areas, each with unique art and music tracks
● Tons of upgrades, books, potions, special items and weapons to help you on your journey
● Over 30 monsters to fight
● Boss monsters with unique abilities
● 70 quests to complete
● Leaderboards - compete with your friends
● 50 Game Center achievements

Finding the game too difficult? Make sure to check out the upgrades store, especially the first 3 upgrade types - they increase your max health, increase the damage you do by spelling words, and decrease the amount of damage you take from monsters. Some players have been saying the game is too hard by around stage 10-15, but hadn't purchased a single upgrade! So please visit the upgrades shop every once in a while to give Grimm and Rose a fighting chance!
