Rearrange the letters to make a word!

Lettermon is simple. You’re given a word and need to make as many words out of it as possible. Through the gameplay, you collect monsters and by guessing new words, you level them up. The first word I was given was ‘Melon’ and out of that I made:

  • Lemon
  • No
  • Mel
  • Men
  • Gone
  • On
  • Elm
  • Meg
  • Leg
  • Gel
  • Nog

…Which scored me 49 points and leveled up my ghost. As you score points you can collect more monsters. The idea is to collect as many as possible!

I enjoyed the gameplay as it was simple yet trained my brain in the best way possible. There were no overwhelming pop-ups or random buttons. Just simply the words.


The graphics are cute and simple!

I found the graphics super adorable – it was all mainly pink with the monsters looking far too cute to pass as monsters. Not only that but you get to pick your own character who is also (yes, you guessed it) adorable.

Music & Sounds

For the most part, Lettermon is a quiet game with the odd sound when you tap something. Usually, I’m not a fan of mute games, but I actually liked this. As I had to use my brain quite a bit to figure out the words, I barely even noticed there wasn’t any background music.


Drag to control!

To guess the words, simply drag the letters to the boxes and then press ‘Play Word’. Depending on which letters you use, you’re rewarded points for every word you play. I liked the controls, they were very easy to use – but I can’t recall a word game that doesn’t have easy controls.

In-app Purchases

This game doesn’t offer in-app purchases – enjoy!

Lettermon doesn’t actually offer in-app purchases, which is quite unusual for a free game – especially one made by an indie developer. Although this definitely makes the experience enjoyable, I can’t help but feel like the developer missed out on offering boosters for a price.

The Verdict

What did you think?!

I found Lettermon a fun little game to play, however, I can see it getting boring pretty quickly. There isn’t a lot of development throughout the game and I feel like I’d have fun playing more developed word games like Word Cookies instead. But don’t let that put you off because it was still a delight to play!

If you decide to download Lettermon, let us know what you think and if you agree or disagree with the things we said. Happy gaming and stay casual!
