Your wordZap handicap is a number from 36-0 used to set the computer's level of play. By default, your handicap adjusts automatically to your skill level.

Set your handicap:

36 = Beginner Expert = 0

The HIGHER your handicap the easier it is for you.
The LOWER the handicap, the greater the challenge. The object is to LOWER your handicap -- as in Golf. A few gifted people achieve a zero handicap.

The object of WordZap is to make 7 unique words FIRST! Make words by clicking letters as fast as you can (this is a race -- not a game with turns). Words are ZAPPED when you and the computer both make the same word.

For faster play use keyboard shortcuts!

After you have mastered EasyZap, move up to WordZap - the really addicting variation. The WordZap ADJACENCY RULE is not difficult if you read the tips carefully and then explore by clicking different tiles.

Help using the UP feature


The UP feature speeds up your game when entering similar words. Use on PC's or swipe UP-wards on tablets.


Example: You just entered END and you want to make ENDED. Do UP and enter E + D.


If the next line already has letters, they are pre-pended.


Example: You made END and you want to make SEND
Enter S and then do UP.


Note that ↑ lifts the last word entered even if it has been zapped - whereas → takes tiles from the topmost word.


For ↑ you can tap on the current line.
