The learning curve is close to zero. Just download it and start playing.
You can select “Quick Play” or “Challenge”. I like “Challenge” because, well, I like a challenge.
You will be presented with screens to find words, but always with a bit of a different spin. Perhaps you’ll be asked to find a particular word among many others. This screen (below) asks you to find the word “walk”, and tells you that there are 10 of them. That pencil you see across the top is a timer, and as you move up in levels, some bombs appear on the timer and when they explode, your screen scrambles the words as you search to beat the clock.
Another screen will ask you to find words in a certain category. This sample (below) asks you to find kinds of noodles. Notice “angel hair” in the upper left corner? That’s one! There are 10 on this page. You must tap them all before the time runs out. And yes, those pesky bombs will be mixing things up.
Another screen asks you to find words that rhyme with ?. In this screen (below) you need to find words that rhyme with “bin”. This is the one complaint that I have with this game (as do others, as you can see in the reviews) …… sometimes the “rhyme” that they are looking for simply doesn’t. Rhyme, that is. Extremely annoying. But if you are alert for it, you can work around it.
Aside from the rhyming error-at-times, this is a fun game to pull up as a bit of a distraction when you want to kill a bit of time.
