* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: When Lex dies, he's merely transported back to the beginning of the chapter he died in. The game says that you lose the potions you used, but you'd have lost them anyway even if you had survived ([[CaptainObvious them having been used, after all]]). Plus, you don't lose experience ''and'' you get the opportunity to replay minigames to win additional potions and/or gem tiles if you're far enough in the book, which means that you can deliberately throw the boss fight in a late chapter of a book, play the minigames to get more potions and gem tiles, then go back to that chapter and defeat all enemies for more experience, and even throw the boss fight ''again'' to stock up on more potions and experience. When you die, Cassandra (Mother Goose in ''Volume 2'') even says that "dying is a minor setback".

As Lex progresses through each book chapter (ten per book), the monsters (in the first book, Oedipus Lex, based on ClassicalMythology, with the second, Arabian Knight, of ''Literature/ArabianNights'' and the third, Lexonomicon, of GothicHorror) get more difficult, with a boss fight at the end of every chapter. Fortunately, Lex also becomes stronger; he occasionally levels up in HP, attack, or defense and obtains a nifty treasure at the end of every chapter with various beneficial effects. Additionally, every book has optional {{minigame}}s, unlocked once Lex has completed a certain number of chapters, that can be played for prizes.

A sequel, ''Bookworm Adventures Volume 2'', was released in 2009. The three books in this installment are Fractured Fairytales (which interestingly includes Alice in Wonderland), The Monkey King (based on Myth/ChineseMythology), and Astounding Planet (based on ScienceFiction). It also differs in adding companions that perform a beneficial action every four turns.

* AwesomeYetPractical: You ''might'' want to hoard some of the more powerful gem tiles for boss battles, but there's no harm in putting a couple of the lower-ranked ones into your words as long-enough words will automatically give you more gem tiles. Likewise, treasures that boost gem effects (the Scimitar of Justice in the original and the Gumdrop Necklace/Collapsible Iron Rod in ''Volume 2'') work ''really'' well.
* BadFuture: In ''Volume 2''.


Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: Any item that disables status effects. They aren't as flashy as some AwesomeButImpractical items, but you will need them later on.
** Emerald and Granite tiles as well. Emerald tiles heal you a bit, and Granite weakens your enemy.


Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler: EvilAllAlong: Codex, the original holder of the Magic pen, uses Lex to take the creatures Lex takes out for himself to kill him off.]]
