Product Description

Enjoy the classic Word Search game on your Kindle anywhere you go.

Locate and mark off words in the grid using the 5 way controller or the touch screen. Each word appears in a straight line, horizontally, vertically or diagonally in the grid - but be careful, sometimes the words are backwards! Play at your own pace or against the clock and see who can get the fastest time for each puzzle. Pause partway through a puzzle and return to where you left it. You can reset each puzzle and try it again as many times as you like. If you get stuck on a more challenging puzzle then you can give up and see the correct solution.

Fun for all ages, with categories from Animals to Best Movie Oscar, there are 50 themed 13x13 puzzles included in Volume 1 covering a wide variety of subjects. People who like puzzles and word games will enjoy playing this fun game on Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Word Search Game! February 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been waiting for quite some time for a word search Kindle game. I'm a big fan of word searches. I absolutely love them. I was so tickled to find this. I bought it and began playing right away. You simply use the five way controller to select the first and last letter of the word. Very user-friendly! They do time how long it takes you to complete the puzzle but there is no deadline. I think this is a great feature - to be able to see my progress and improvement. I couldn't have asked for a better word search game. I can only ask that they make more volumes. I just can't get enough! This is a great game for a great price!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great game to pass a little time with. February 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really had no idea of what to expect from a word search game on my Kindle. It turns out that it is a very interesting format for competing against yourself to establish a fastest time for solving the puzzles.

The solving mechanics are quite good, although most of your time on the clock will be spent moving the cursor to the correct letters rather than in actually finding the word. The puzzle starts off with a 13 x 13 letter grid with the center letter circled. You use the five-way to move to either the first or last letter of the word you are looking for, click the center of the five-way and you get a darkened circle, use the five-way to go to the other end of your word, click the center again and the word is automatically connected by a line and removed from your list to be found. All of this while the clock is running. There is also a box on the top left to show how many words out of the total you have completed. By pressing the space bar you can pause the timer, by pressing the 'menu' key you are given additional options: How to Play, Clear Puzzle, Show Solution, Pause, Next Puzzle, Previous Puzzle, Home Page. I had wondered if you could repeat solving a puzzle and the answer to that question was answered in this options menu.

These puzzles are not very difficult. Most of them contain 24 words, but one puzzle has only 17 words to be found. There are 50 total puzzles with titles such as Shakespeare, Global Landmarks, Fishing Terms, Best Movie Oscar, Detectives, Super Bowl and Guitarists. The mix of subjects seems very well balanced and I'm quite looking forward to solving all of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! February 9, 2011
By Jenni
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like how this word search is set up. It's easy to use - very intuitive. I noticed a couple reviews talked about how much time it takes to navigate, but if you have the newest Kindle, you can just hold down the button and the cursor will zoom across the puzzle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what you'd expect! February 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With Word Search you get exactly what you would expect which to me is worth a five star rating. This game fits the Kindle format perfectly. You don't need graphics, sounds, bells or whistles, it's just like the Word Searches I've been buying for years. The only addition is a clock to time how long it takes to solve the puzzle and 99 cents for 50 puzzles you can't beat the price. If you like word search puzzles then you'll like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great on the Kindle February 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a perfect word search for the Kindle. I had bought a different word search that said it was formatted for the Kindle, yet you needed to write down the answers as if they were on a grid - back to pen and paper. This game, however, works great on my Kindle, and I have the K2. There is no writing the answers or using notes or highlights. You just click the first letter of the word, toggle to the last letter, and click that. A line goes through the word to mark it off. I like the way the words on the list turn gray when you find them in the puzzle so you know which words you still need to find.

I would love to see more word searches like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easier w/ Kindle Touch one Exception December 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I LOVE word searches! I have always play them, so when I was surprised with my new Kindle 3g Touch, I purchased a book first and then this word search puzzle.

First; it is very easy to use with the Kindle Touch, I found that I need to use a stylus, so I am using the clear cap on an old ink gel pen, easy to see through. All you have to do is select the first and last letter of each word. The games are stimulating enough for old pros by timing yourself, and by using very unusual words that I wasn't familiar with.

Secondly; the biggest problem that I having trouble with is after I finished the first 10 puzzles in the table of contents, with the Kindle Touch it is almost impossible to page past to the next page. Most times open another puzzle that I've already completed. I have to either use menu to select next puzzle many times until I am at a new puzzle, or go back and see if I can slide just the RIGHT way, so that the Kindle will page forward and not open a puzzle.

If the software could put in a fix that allows the Kindle touch users to page forward at the bottom of the table of contents, it would make this a 5 star review, and me a lot happier, since I have already purchased all of the other search games from this seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars WORKS WITH KINDLE!!! February 10, 2011
By Moz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Finally a word search game that actually works with Kindle! I'm very pleased with this game. Though I don't like being timed and try to ignore the timer clock lol. But the good thing is that I can find a few words... leave the game, then come back later and continue where I left off. The words and timer will continue where you left off.
