The game itself plays just like the word searches you’ve done on paper, except the puzzles are generated automatically, so you’ll never play the same exact puzzle twice. Letters in the game are highlighted as you drag your finger over them, so you can actually see what you’re picking, and words are automatically crossed off the list when you find them.
The app has over 100 categories to choose from, so you can play quite a while!
Hey, if you’re looking around for the other funny stuff I’ve been up to lately when “24” isn’t on the air, go over and check out “Ask Buxley“, or follow AskBuxley on Twitter. It’s entirely “World of Warcraft” humor, so if you like playing that MMO, check it out.
“Ask Buxley” is a regular segment at the end of “The Instance” podcast, one of the top rated podcasts in the “Games and Hobbies” category. The hosts, Scott Johnson and Randy Jordan do a great job on that podcast, and I feel fortunate to be able to contribute to it.
