World Word Search

4.3 out of 5 stars 61 customer reviews



Product Description

World Word Search includes 50 13x13 puzzles, each with a different country theme. There are cities, local food, languages, traditions and more to find in each puzzle. There is sure to be fun for all ages!

Your goal is to 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.

People who like Word Searches will have a great time with this game on Kindle.

The word search games by Oak Systems Leisure Software are nice adaptations of the pencil-and-paper word search/word find puzzles that have been popular for decades. The Kindle version of "World Word Search" is simple to play using the 5-way controller to mark the first and last letters of the words you find. There's a one-page "How to Play" tutorial, and that's all you need to get started.

World Word Search has fifty different themed puzzles representing fifty countries (this includes some regions as well, such as Africa, Europe, and Asia). Each puzzle has 20-24 words embedded in the 13x13 grid. You don't have to be an expert in any theme, since the words are listed below the game board (as a nice touch, words that you've found are grayed out in the list). Each puzzle has 20-24 different words.

For each country, the list of words includes things like cities, foods, geographic features, and other words often associated with the country. For example, for Germany, the list of twenty clues includes words like "Rhine," "Bavaria," "sausages," and "Hamburg."

You can play World Word Search at a leisurely pace, or if you're feeling competitive, you can use the built-in timer that keeps track of your time.

Overall, World Word Search is a well designed, fun version of word search for the Kindle.

I realize that I do not know much about each of these countries, so it was interesting to learn some of their city names, and that some of the sayings come from that country. That is the thng I really I enjoy about word search. Right now I am mostly house bound, so please have more word search available for me to buy.

I originally bought World Word Search for myself since I love word searches. I then discovered that my 9 year old neice liked playing it. It has so many different puzzles to choose from and allows you to switch back and forth very easily. You will find yourself "addicted" in no time at all!!! It is a game that you can play then if you need to stop to do something else pick it back up seamlessly. I really enjoy playing it and love that kids can do it with little problem.

I like searching for different country's words. If you like word searches this provides a twist. For me, it was a little bit harder than searching for common words related to America. Also, I learned a little from doing the searches!

I haven't played this much because I've been moving, but as I have played this so far, it is a good word search. The screens I have played in this one so far have been city names, like European capitals, for instance.

If you like word searches, I am sure you'll like this one too. And most Kindle games are a good value and give hours of play, so I expect this one to.

I love my Kindle. I take it along on occasions when I am going to have to be sitting and waiting. Being able to have word search in it, is great. If I want to be lightly engaged in using the Kindle, and fully aware of my surroundings ... word search offers me that, instead of being immersed in a book. Besides, it is good exercise for the brain, and we all need that.

I purchased this word search so that I can pass the time on some short train rides or in between books i'm on.. I showed the kids one afternoon waiting for an appointment and they were hooked. They wanted to challenge each other on beating the timer. Fun and easy sometimes a bit of challenge great for passing time.. great for kids and adults..
