Product Description

Have fun solving Word Search puzzles on Kindle!

The objective of Word Search is to find words hidden in a grid full of letters. Words are placed horizontally, vertically, and diagonally, and can even be spelled out backwards. The words you are looking for are shown at the bottom of the screen for reference, and marked off both on the board and on the list as you find each one.

Puzzles are suitable for players of all ages with board sizes ranging from 12x12 to 16x16. Each board is created with words populated from 50 themed groups, and includes topics such as Zoo Animals, Olympic Sports, and Internet/Computing.

Each time you solve a puzzle, a new puzzle is created with words selected randomly from the theme. You can also get hints, see the solution, and change the layout of the display. Your games are automatically saved so you can take a break and pick up right where you left off.

No matter how often you play, you will always have puzzles to solve. Enjoy this word puzzle on Kindle!

5.0 out of 5 stars A decent word search program. July 12, 2011
Verified Purchase
I've liked several programs by Compulab (Calendar, Peg Solitaire), so i thought I'd check out this one.

It's a fairly standard word search puzzle. In each, use the 5-way locator to pick the first and last letter of a word. That word is then circled, and crossed off the list.

There are 10 each of Casual (12x12), Apprentice (13x13), Pro (14x14), Expert (15x15), and Masters (16x16) level, for 50 puzzles in all.

Interestingly, you can reset a puzzle -- it will have the same words, but they will be in different locations.

Recommended for those that like word search puzzles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inaccuracies September 9, 2011
The puzzle "U.S. States" contains territories which are not states. I like the themes of the puzzles and rising difficulty but I dislike the way found words are circled with light lines. I prefer the bold line through them done in other games. I feel that I am getting my money's worth in entertainment so I do recommend it, but with the caution that it will misinform you if you don't know your basics about the U.S.

4.0 out of 5 stars I would love to use this word search more BUT October 12, 2011

Even though I bought this for me, when my Great Granddaughter is with me, she does most of the puzzles before I even get to look at them. It is great for her when I have to take her places with me and she has to sit and wait patiently for me. This keeps her occupied and quiet the whole time. Wonderful babysitter and great for me when I get the chance to use it. I have noticed that it also sharpens her ability to find things more quickly. In a way, it is a great learning tool for her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Word Quest December 23, 2011
By Donkey
I love this game on paper and found it on digital. It is so much more organized. Strike out a word and a line goes through it. Then the category you are in has the words at the bottom of the page and they go away when you eliminate the word. There is also a timer on it so you can challenge your speed on repeat runs. Love the game!

This game is identical to word search puzzles found in books, with the advantage of a time clock so the player is able to see improvement.
