Illitera, the intergalactic word thief, has stolen every word on Earth and sped off in her spaceship. In Word Zapper, you'll help Blasternaut capture the letters that complete the word- before Illitera's fuel suckers stop him.

You're on board Illitera's ship! Alphabetize your way out of the Plate Patrol and decide if aliens that get in yur way are friends or foes!

In Tank Release, Blasternaut needs three helpers to reach the switch that will return the words to Earth. Choose instructions in the correct order.

Hot on Illitera's trail in Splatterpod, Blasternaut needs your help to identify the correct antonyms and synonyms.

In Sequence Shocker, help Blasternauts capture Illitera by carrying out the written instructions that will deactivate her force field.
