Players who challenge opponents must create a word between four and eight letters long, using the letters provided to them. The challenge is then sent to a player who must guess the word with a limited amount of guesses (based on how many letters were used to make the word). The exchange of challenges and guesses continues until one player uses all five of their balloons and their avatar falls into a pit of lava or other various deathtraps. Players have lifelines at their disposal that can either restore guesses, reveal letters that may be part of the word, or remove letters that are not part of the word they are trying to guess. The game is a freemium game, meaning there is no cost to play, but players have the option of purchasing premium content.
