Text Twist is a casual game developed by GameHouse where you are meant to unscramble as many words as possible with the provided letters before your time runs out. Each valid word contributes to your overall score.

How to Play Text Twist

Text Twist features a mixture of easy and tricky words to find. The words must be at least 3 letters long. You have 2 minutes each round to find as many words as possible before the timer runs out. To qualify for the next round, you must find the longest word that uses all the letters.

Text Twist puts your literacy skills to the test. The words get trickier and more obscure as you progress, so you’ll have to be fairly competent with the English language if you want to go far.

The game has a “twist” feature that shuffles the letters to help you. This is useful when you get stuck and need a fresh perspective.


  • Use your creative language skills to find various words
  • Fun gameplay that tests your English literacy
  • Timed rounds add excitement and pressure
  • Increasing difficulty makes the game a real challenge
