The object of Word Whomp™ Underground is to make as many words as you can from the 6 letters in the middle of the screen before time runs out.
Make words by clicking or typing the letters in order. When you finish making a word, click the ENTER button. If the word is in the puzzle, the word will appear on the signs at the top of the screen. You’ll receive more time on the time clock for each word that you find!
Each word you find moves the gopher at bottom a little closer to the carrot. Once he munches the carrot, you start earning tokens for each word you find, you get a carrot bonus, and you get a jackpot spin! Longer words are worth more tokens. Spell all the words to make the gopher munch the turnip for a big all-words bonus!

Word Whomp Underground Tips & Hints
Rank progress in Word Whomp Underground is based on the number of games you win, or the number of times the gopher reaches the first buried item while digging.
Word Whomp Underground is a rare game, because the player has a much greater control on whether he wants to play the bonus games.
You DO NOT have to play the “Drill” part of the game to progress in the story in order to get rank progress. If you like, you can pile up your gears and never try to make words. After a while, the gopher will stop asking you if you want to try to fix the drill.
You can also avoid the other bonus game, which you get by collecting acorns. This bonus game really lags, and you cannot get much more than 300 tokens. To avoid this game, play in a room by yourself, and the “rescue the player” game will never happen. Those give you a bunch of acorns and can start a bonus game quite often. Also, you can avoid guessing six-letter words, which also give you an acorn.
Playing on easy, you should quickly be able to guess enough words to get to the carrot (or other item) without having to guess the six-letter word. Once you win the game, press “New Game”, get your spin and go to the next game. Playing this way, the ranks will go by very quickly.
