About this game

This is the most flexible word search app on the market. Multiple configuration options create a game that exactly corresponds to your device and your expertise.
The words to find are in English, or you can play in 35 other languages.
Designed for fun games from the smallest mobile phones up to the largest tablets.
Bored of seeing the same words appear repeatedly? Frustrated at looking for bizarre words that are not even English? Struggled with grids that are inappropriate for your device or difficult to read? Word Search Ultimate solves all these problems

You can configure:

1) Grid size
Specify exactly how many columns and rows to use (from 3 to 20). Even non square grids (e.g. 12x15) are possible
2) Difficulty of the game
Specify approximate proportion of words that are written diagonally, backwards or vertically (e.g. allow no diagonal or backwards words, ideal for introducing children to Word Search)
3) Difficulty of the words
Specify the size of the dictionary to generate a game, from the 500 most common words (good for kids and language students), up to 80,000 words
4) Maximum # of words
Choose the maximum number of words to find in one game, from 1 to 150. This will provide enough words to fill a 20x20 grid
5) Minimum & Maximum word length
This helps avoid searching for many small words (a common problem in word apps). Also useful for specifying really difficult games (e.g. set both minimum and maximum word length to three).
6) Highlighting
Mark the already found words, or keep the grid unmarked and easy to read
7) Word list layout
The word list can be arranged in columns or evenly spread out across the screen
8) Language
Choose the language of the word list, from a large range of downloadable dictionaries. 36 languages are currently available (see below)
9) Orientation
Can be played in portrait or landscape mode. Just rotate your device and the display adjusts automatically
10) Word Category
Choose the words to find from a range of categories; e.g. animals, food etc

This app gives you the ultimate power to play the game just the way you want

Each game is assigned a difficulty level from 0 (easy) to 9 (very hard). The difficulty level is determined by the settings or the difficulty selector. Each difficulty level maintains the high scores (measured by fastest time to complete the game). The game displays the best 20 scores for each difficulty level.

Other features unique to this app:

1) Two methods of selecting words: (i) the classic swipe (ii) by touching the first and last letter of the word from the grid
2) Game aid if you are having difficulty. You can choose to reveal a word that you cannot find
3) View the definition of the word from an online dictionary (internet connection required)
4) When you play with a word list in a foreign language, the word definition will (where possible) be in your own language. This is great for language learning!

You can play this app in the following languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, Polish, Hungarian, Czech, Russian, Arabic, Bulgarian, Croatian, Greek, Indonesian, Romanian, Serbian, Serbo-Croatian, Slovak, Slovene, Turkish, Ukrainian, Afrikaans, Albanian, Azeri, Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Catalan, Galician, Tagalog

I love this game! It's more challenging and I can customize it. It would get 5 stars if it was updated more on a regular basis. You got people hooked now keep their interest with new puzzles, different word categories, etc. That would be worth the cost of $7 for all access and no ads.

Good game, BUT somebody at the developers is being lazy. So far when you play 5 or 6 games on each level the list of words to search tend to repeat more on higher levels, less on lower. I do have to admit that the location of the words in the play area do change position occasionally. They probably thought nobody would notice.

I like that you can choose the size and how many words. Overlapping words seem a bit odd, but fun all the same. I really like I can play off line, since I travel. I uninstalled my other word search apps. Don't need them.
