Words Story Answers and Cheats
What’s this? A phone-based word game with an actual PLOT? We are wowed. Wowed, we are. Words Story places you in the shoes (or the ends of the lower sticks) of a stickman who has been falsely convicted of murder. Your poor spindly man has gone up the river, got jammed up in the big house. You gotta bust him out!
You help him escape jail by winning a series of word games. We’re fairly certain that’s not how prison breaks work, but we’re happy to help. If you need hints and game answers for Words Story, WordFinder is your Huckleberry.

How Do I Play?
To make it to Words Story’s ending, you’ll need to complete fill-in-the-blank puzzles with a given set of letters. So far, so textbook. The actual gameplay is very much in the Word Cookies mode of selecting the right word to fit the blank in front of you. The game often presents a theme, generally something to do with prison, but it’s pretty tenuous. You drop your guy a chicken drumstick one time. Not sure why, but hey, video game logic.
As Words Story isn’t quite as pick-up-and-play as most other word game apps, here are some hints and tips we at WordFinder found helpful:
- Remember the theme… Everything circles back to poor Mr. Stick being stuck in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. Think The Shawshank Redemption and you’re likely to find the words you need.
- ...up to a point. Remember that chicken drumstick? Andy Dufresne did not have a chicken drumstick in Shawshank. For that matter, the puzzle answer that provided the drumstick was “meat.” (If you have a logical, non-horrible connection between meat and prison escape, we’d love to hear it.) You’ll need to think laterally and use your imagination to fill in the trickier Words Story game answers and make your escape.
- Work around confusing clues. There’s an important word in game writing: localization. Localization is when a game is written in one language, then given to an expert writer to make sure it reads naturally in another language. The localization of Words Story is… not great. You’ll see several typos and oddities of phrasing throughout the game. Just roll with it. Keep an open mind, and when a clue makes no sense, try interpreting it literally, then figure out what it’s supposed to say. Think of it as Google Translate-ese.
The Words Story jail game is ambitious. We love ambition in games and firmly believe that word games can be as deep and interesting as any other genre. Words Story doesn’t perfectly execute on that promise, but it’s a fun play and a glimpse of what the future of word games could be.
