"Help the worm Lex eat words with the biggest number of letters in this fun passtime."
As you will have no doubt already worked out just from the name of this game, Bookworm Deluxe 1.40 is above all a wordsearch passtime, but it is much more than that. You must guide the worm Lex to eat the words that form, and when the number of letters is high, the better it helps his appetite.
But the bad news is that, in Bookworm Deluxe 1.40, if you don`t kill his appetite, then the words go up in flames and get sent to difficult parts of the screen and are harder to place in the library, placing all your strength in danger.
The files with burning letters in them have a maximum waiting time before they are destroyed (and place all the other letters in danger), so you have to use all your skills and judgement to use those letters to make words in this entertaining wordsearch. So you must be quick-thinking and skillful if you want to succeed.
