A Word Puzzle by David Taylor

Slide the tiles to unscramble the word square—a square of letters that forms valid words both across and down.

My theory is that because this puzzle exercises two opposing skills, it will be challenging for anyone.

If you have a good English vocabulary you may find it easy to discover the words, but you'll probably find it difficult to move the tiles into place.

If you're good at spatial reasoning you may find it easy to move the tiles into place, but you'll probably find it difficult to discover the words.

It's suprisingly difficult to solve even the simplest 3x3 word square, and you'll be blown away by the extreme difficulty of a 5x5 word square.

Maybe this is why the ancient Greeks believed that the person who could solve a 10x10 word square would become immortal.

Fun Game!

This game is a challenge from the get-go! It takes a little time to get used to the navigation and how the game actually works, but once that’s done your brain gets a workout! I think with a few little tweaks, this will be your favorite go to game all the time!
I have played a lot of word games, and they always come up short. Not this one! I love the layout for the game. The slide concept is different, and I like it! Come on and join the fun!

Thank you so much for the kind review, Ellen! I'm working on an update to make the navigation easier to figure out and adding some in-game help, too. Stay tuned! -David

Great Game!

Fun and challenging! Like a rubics cube with words instead of colors.

Thank you so much for the review! I was excited to read your comparison to Rubik's Cube, because that's exactly how I think of it, too! -David

Great mellow time waster

I love word games and this one is just right. Not too easy, nice graphics, good game play and sounds. I salute the developer.
