    It transcends its board-game inspiration: Instead of punishing players with dictionary checks, it turns new knowledge into a reward.

    While W.E.L.D.E.R doesn't really add a whole lot to the word game scene, it is a thoroughly competent effort. If you're tiring of your favorite word puzzle game and are looking for something new, you'll definitely get more than a few good weeks out of the title.

    It's certainly a challenge for Scrabble veterans, but with a lack of modes and a shortage of tension, W.E.L.D.E.R. struggles to stand out in a crowded genre of far better vocab games.

    As tightly designed and finely balanced as it is, it's hard to shake the feeling that you're endlessly replaying a tutorial.

    The problem is, this task is all there is, and while you can fine-tune tactics to better your score, it's frustrating to have to wait until powers are unlocked every game.
