This game adds a whole new twist to the traditional word finding games. The basic idea is not to build words but to find existing words. This one is definitely going to test your vocabulary and have you rack your brains out.

The game itself is quite simple yet creative in the way it has been designed. Players are presented with a 4 by 4 grid filled with alphabets. They have to find words and then swipe in order to select them and make them disappear. Words can be swiped out in any direction. The ultimate goal is to clear the board completely. As you swipe out words, they can be viewed in the word list on the right side of your screen. There are two other tabs- hints and rules. They do just what their names suggest.

The twist or trick is to choose the right words to clear so as to continue the puzzle without reaching a dead end. Once you are left with letters that cannot form a word, your game is over. Choosing words wisely is very important.

The puzzles in the game have been designed by Colin Morgan and David Hoyt- the absolute experts in the field of word puzzle games. Hoyt makes a career by writing word puzzles for USA Today, Boggle Brain Busters and Jumble. Morgan is a game author and inventor. This way, you get the best of the best minds across the world. All you have to do is apply your brains now.

Once you download the game, you are greeted with a short tutorial to guide you. With this, you are good to go. Time to get your hands dirty with words with this puzzle game.

Another interesting and fun aspect of this game is that there are two types of puzzles. The first type is called ‘classic’. In this one, players swipe out words diagonally, horizontally or vertically. The second type is called ‘twist’. The twist in this one is that you can form words by twisting between adjacent columns and rows. You can choose words as a continuous stream of letters that are adjacent to one another in corresponding rows or columns.


To add to the fun, the game gets more creative as you progress. There are new rules and twists at various levels as you move from one level to the next. The levels get tougher and more challenging as you progress. To say the least, it becomes increasingly addictive owing to the increasing challenge and twists.
