Words With Foes: Quest for the Lexinomicon
A downloadable game for Windows
Fight monsters, get loot, and defeat the biggest bosses around!
Type scrabble-approved words in order to defeat monsters and gain their letters. But watch out! They'll attack you back, making you lose those precious letters.
Keep your tray full, in this endless typing expedition into the depths!
- You can attack with any single letter, so you can dump useless letters for the cost of getting hit.
- You progress to tougher bosses as you collect letters.
- Once you defeat the final bosses and the credits, you can play endlessly.
- Esc key quits the game instantly.
For a SPECIAL CHALLENGE, see how many tiles you can have in your deck when you reach the end of the credits.

Love this game, want to play more. My high score is only 110 because I keep having to close the program to go do other things. Please add a save ability. Also would work fantastic as a mobile app.
Great suggestions, and thanks for playing! :D
i kept thinking 'oh, eventually i'll hit the credits,' because i'm a fool who didn't realize that in fact the names of the makers of the game were the credits.
it should tell you that i was into this that i've only realized this at 562 tiles
I can't totally blame you, for two reasons: 1) Yup, it's just that much fun. 2) The word "credits" was supposed to appear, but due to a very simple bug it did not. That has been fixed in version 0.6. ♥
I had the awesome honor to cover your game on my website/youtube channel. I can say that I honestly love the game a lot. I do agree with a menu needed to be added if you all decide to make this a full game. Otherwise, a really great game.
Here is gameplay footage of the game as well.
Ah wonderful! Thanks for playing our little game! :)
Great game, I got sucked in pretty quickly. I think there should be menus (like a pause/exit game menu). I hit escape when I was done, assuming it would open a menu but it just closed the program. It's also a bit vague what the enemy's health is at. I'd love to see this done on a bigger scale/have an app.
My high score is 62.
Impressive score! Thanks so much for playing! We're glad you enjoyed it. :)
