This kind of puzzle game is still very popular among seniors. It is a good way to pass the time and can assist with brain function apparently.
This free version has been on my tablet for months and I like the way that the board fits the screen size and the letters are clear and easy to read. Just find the hidden words in a grid of cells filled with letters.
All you have to do is search for a word, and when you find one, swipe along the letters to mark it with the finger from the first letter to the last. If the word is correct it will be marked with a distinctive colour.
From the app description:
Word search has 7 items to choose from:
– Countries of the World
– Cities of the World
– American presidents
– Historical figures
2.- Word search has three levels of difficulty:
3.- Word search has two game modes:
– List of words (words to find the slopes shown)
– Remaining number of words (the number of words to find earrings shown)
4.- Has two methods of self-generation:
– The maximum number possible (the board is filled with the maximum number of words)
As the app is free, there are no ads to detract from the game or reduce the size of the playing board but it really requires a tablet or larger screen phone to be able to see the letters clearly.
