Find specific words in a pandemonium of letters
Pros & Cons:
Word Search developed by Melimots is a popular word game for Android. It isn't a dictionary but an old game of finding specific words in a pandemonium of letters.
The number of letters on a screen is automatically adjusted depending on the letters size you choose and the mobile device you use. On a tablet with a small letters size, a screen may contain about 300 letters and hide roughly 70 words in each game.
Word Search displays the words in the puzzle on the left side or bottom of the screen. When you find a word, it receives a strikethrough to denote that you've found it.
Finding words are as simple as dragging your finger across the word either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Found words are highlighted on the puzzle, however the highlight color changes. This helps the puzzle remain legible even after you've found 50-odd words.
The app provides little outside the basic gameplay. The menu on the top of the screen allows you to begin a new game and access the options. Once you complete a game, you receive a score based on the amount of time taken to finish. The App does come with ads.
