    Eh.

    There are 6 games, and some have multiple settings. On a Nook Color, the poorer control the touchscreen provides and make for some frustrating moments, especially for timed puzzles. Instructions for each game are confined to one page of text, no illustrations. The dictionary of allowable words is very liberal--I used British slang and bad words. There's some omissions (wingnut is not playable) and some odd allowable ones (rae--the only definition I could find is as a notation for Bismuth).

    Game 1: Boggle type, where you have a board of letter tiles and you have to find words (minimum 3 letters) using connecting letters. The twist is that you can scramble the tiles for a time penalty if you're stuck. The tile randomizer is a bit wonky--I've gotten the same board twice an hour or two apart, and boards filled with V's and I's. And once I get a board with lots of repeated letters, the boards afterwards will usually have lots of repeats too.

    Game 2: Word jigsaw, similar to those in Dell's puzzle magazines.

    Game 3: Word matching, also like in Dell magazines--you have two columns of words, and you try to find relationships (e.g. antonyms, part of same phrase, etc.) such that each word only belongs to one pair. You can pick a category of topics or just have everything thrown together, but the words and names get quite obscure.

    Game 4: Guess a letter (timed): cute game. You submit words and find out if the mystery letter belongs or not. T

    Game 5: Come up with two words (timed): You're given two definitions and a bunch of letters. Not all letters will be used, but you need to find the words using the letters provided. The hint system will give you the number of letters in each word and fill in the letters, but there's a time penalty.

    Game 6: Fill in a grid: You're given a 7x7 board with the middle row filled in. You can add a letter, but only if it makes a word with adjacent letters. You can't use two letter words and you can't move diagonally. Your goal's to fill up the whole grid.

    High Scores: There is a high scores section for each game, but it's a bit silly since it doesn't always compare apples to apples. So for the boggle type game, you can opt for a 3x3 tile board and 1 minute or a 6x6 tile board and 5 minutes. But the scores for both are lumped into the same high list. For the word matching game, it just posts the score for a session, but there's no way to lose on relaxed mode as far as I can tell, so it's a matter of how long you can keep going.

    Disappointed!!!

    I have the first game app and was expecting more of the same types of games. Some of the new games are very hard to understand. I'm disappointed but I do enjoy some of the new ones. ENJOY!!!!

    Thumbs up, mostly

    Word Hunt, Letter Scramble, Word Jigsaw, and Word Twins all entertain me and I play them a lot. They work well, they are quick to learn, and they are fun to play. I cannot play Letter Scramble or Guess-a-Letter, though, because I don't understand the rules. I could be helped by more detailed instructions for both of those games. I'd like to be able to play all six of the games in the package.
