"Endless loquaciousness"

Reviewed by / Nov 08, 2013

Solve the puzzles by tracing words hidden in the random grids within a maximum number of moves

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.

Developer's original description available here
Supported languages : English, French, German, Italian and Spanish

Find words on the board by swiping your finger across the screen. The letters form words when connected to each other.

Word Hunter is a word/puzzle game. It’s a mix up between Boggle (like Ruzzle) and Bejeweled.

If you are a fan of word games you will love Word Hunter. It draws inspirations from word games such as Scrabble, Boggle, Motus and many others.

This word game is quite easy to pick up but while it remains simple to play, it has both depth and variety in the gameplay. You will need to be fast and think on your feet !

It also has huge replay value since each board is unique !

    As usual, the ads are a pain, but the game is excellent!

    Great way to pass time. My only complaint would be that sometimes it is a bit hard to get the words that you want , as you too easily catch letters that you don't want.

    Love playing this. Difficult enough to hold your attention but not so hard that you think there's no point, you're never gonna achieve anything. Biggest pain is constant ads but it's free!

    I thought that the grid was too large and that the game play was not very rewarding. The game seemed very easy and it might be better if any 'difficult' letters used, generated more points. I had no sense of achievement and did not want to play again. Of course, way too many ads, but it's free.
