Subwords is an exciting mix between a trivia and a word game. Words are split into syllables and you have to put them back together as fast as possible. The words in every level are bound to a certain topic, so you have to know about the topic to solve it. But it's no problem if you aren't that familiar with a specific topic: Simply click the bulb to learn something new!


  • Over 30 levels, ranging from animals and fruits to European countries, our solar system or greek mythology etc.
  • 20 bonus levels built specifically for kids up to an age of 8 years.
  • A new topic is added every month (for free!)!
  • Two modes: Classic and Timed
  • Learn spelling and syllabification of words, plus new vocabulary!
  • Play in six different languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian!)
  • Face Control: Enables people that can only move their head to play the game!
  • Accessibility: Support VoiceOver and reduced motion, high contrast mode, dyslexic font...
