Did you know that Kalima is Swahili for “word?”

The game begins with the option to use the brief tutorial for new beginners which I found really helpful for my first playthrough.

Place letters on the lower quarter of the screen and create a word to make points before the timer runs out. The catch is that the first and last letters of the word are already chosen and cannot be changed, meaning the player has to only fill in the middle letters of the word. When the timer runs out, a new word to fill-in appears and the timer begins again, audibly ticking much faster. The player must fill in either set of words before the timer runs out again. The game ends when the player fails to complete seven words.


I really appreciated the games unique design and interface. The letters are placed on a traditional tribal looking yellow and brown background. The timer's rattling sound echoes rhythmically in your head, making filling in words really feel like a race against time. Chants signal a word has been submitted successfully. Wild animals screech when the timer has run out.

Unfortunately, unlike other word games, Kalima does not have any other modes of play and there is no level progression. Playing through the game can be a bit repetitive with no variation in gameplay. The game could have benefited from different challenges like including letters that provide extra points or adding bonus words.  That said, Kalima'a simplicity, cool interface, and fun gameplay makes it a solid entry into the word game category.
