Compact Words is a set of 6 word-based games and puzzles from the Compact Fun range. Brief details of each component are given below.

Please note that the individual games are also available as individual apps: free ad-supported apps, and, in some cases, paid-for ad-free apps. So, you can try them first.

Original: 1-4 players (pastime for 1)
-------------------------------------

Linkword Snap
An original game in which the players (up to 4) try to find a word that links given definitions or conditions. These may be simple, such as finding a word that matches 'Name of an actor or actress' and 'A 9-letter word', where Nicholson would be acceptable, or harder such as 'Name of a President' and 'Name of a make or model of car', where Ford or Lincoln would be acceptable.

Pentad
An original simple but frustrating letter and word game (up to 4 players) - try to make words from 25 letters on a 5x5 grid. There are three phases: Positioning, in which you place the letters on the grid; Swapping, in which you can swap two pairs; and Scoring, in which you select the words formed (2-5 letters), with bonuses for 5-letter words and for including the letter on the central square. If you like Scrabble, we think you'll like Pentad.

Classic: 1 player
-----------------

Hangman
A sophisticated version of the hangman puzzle or game normally played with pencil and paper, where one player tries to guess the letters of a hidden word. This version may be played by one player trying to guess a word specified by the system (from a dictionary of over 6500 words), or by two players where one of them specifies the word for the other to find.

WordSearch+
Search for the given words that are hidden in the letter grid - plus some that aren't given, but whose length you are told.

Classic: 1+players (pastime for 1)
----------------------------------

Beguile
A game like Boggle where you try to beat the countdown to identify words in a 4x4 or 5x5 grid formed by adjacent letters. Includes a Fix and Show feature where a known long word is inserted into the grid for you to find.

Letters game
Beat the countdown to make the longest word from 9 letters, where you select the next one as either a vowel or a consonant. Includes a Push and Show feature where a known long word is pushed to you - can you get all the letters and can you identify the word?

----------------------------------

Full Help facility for each component.

Always open in Portrait orientation.

The individual games are also available as individual apps: free ad-supported apps, and, in some cases, paid-for ad-free apps.

Versions of the individual components for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Nokia, Windows PCs and Macs are available from i.compactfun.com.
