Description

Are you disappointed by all the amateurish word search games in the app store, with their small unreadable and weak puzzles, awful user interfaces, childish silly graphics, and limited content and functionality? If you are, or want something better, try Word Quest!

Word Quest is a fun, polished word and number search puzzle with many twists on the classic genre. With innovative additions to the original concept, challenging features and layouts, and tons of content, it'll keep you motivated and playing game after game. And unlike other word search games, the puzzles adjust to your preferences to create just the right complexity with the intersections and coverage amounts you want. Word Quest is OpenFeint enabled with leader-boards, achievements and challenges (connect and play online against your friends), and is Wikipedia search capable.

PLAY MODES

+ CLASSIC +

This is the classic word search game. Your goal is to find a list of words on a random board of letters. Depending on the difficulty settings, words can appear in reverse order and can intersect each other. Your points are tracked but you have an unlimited amount of time to complete the puzzle.

+ RUSH +

This mode introduces the element of time. The game starts with a puzzle board like Classic, but you have a limited amount of time to finish, and finding words not only gives you points but subtracts time. There are bonus or penalty points in this mode based on how fast you finish and/or whether you run out of time.

+ SHIFT +

A twist on the Classic, the game board is longer than the screen. Only the visible words are listed, and the puzzle will automatically scroll as you find the words to reveal more. If you like Classic, but wish the game play were longer, this is your mode. As with Classic, your points are tracked but you don't have to worry about time.

+ ACTION +

This mode combines Rush and Shift. The game starts with a puzzle board similar to Shift, but you have a limited amount of time to finish, like in Rush. As an added challenge, the board will scroll automatically whether you found all the visible words or not. It's a race against space and time.

UPDATES ARE FREE TO BOTH THE APPLICATION AND PURCHASED THEMES.

4/5 stars

Fun

:
I really like this game, however when I pay extra for more topics, all topics should be unlocked. I do not see the point of having puzzles with number searches.

3/5 stars

Could use Improvements

:
Not bad. Nice variety. The font could be better and it's difficult to make the word selections. Whether I select yes or no in options for effects, I get them anyways. The effects are annoying and take away from the game.

5/5 stars

Good fun

:
So much fun! Just what I was looking for... Distracting. Enjoyable.
