Word game meets platformer in this hybrid action/puzzle game.

Familar mechanics with a twist

  • Platformer controls meet word game puzzles. Your goal: Guide @ as deep as you can into an infinite well of letters by clearing words from the board.
  • Don't have every obscure three-letter word memorized? No problem! Lexcavator's fluid level generation algorithm keeps the board filled with longer, more satisfying words.
  • Power-ups (like * Blast, ? Alchemize, and _ Erode) can help or hinder your progress. Use them strategically!

Three game modes to please all kinds of gamers

  • Arcade: Dig deep and fast while the screen scrolls upwards.
  • Time Trial: Pick an interval (ninety seconds or four minutes) and get as many points as possible before time's up.
  • Quest Mode: Dozens of challenges designed to test your lexcavation skills. No time limit in this mode—play at your own pace!

Keep tabs on your progress

  • Lexcavator keeps detailed records of your highest scoring games across all modes.
  • Want to know how your skills stack up? Compare your scores against the global leaderboard!
  • Visit the Hall of Lexcellence to see a list of your all-time highest scoring words.
