Word games are a dime a dozen. This one, though, is pretty good. UpAndCrawling's Word Hunter is a wonky word search that turns out to be surprisingly addictive.
You have a limited number of moves to score points by finding words from the alphabet soup on the screen. The longer the words, the greater the score, of course. Occasionally you'll come across special tiles that provide both bonuses and penalties, so watch out! The developer calls it a mix between Boggle and Bejeweled - nail, meet head.
Interestingly, the app supports five different languages: English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. I can imagine it could serve as an unconventional study tool for especially enterprising users.
There aren't any bells and whistles here, but UpAndCrawling's Word Hunter is definitely a solid app for language lovers.
