I can make no bones about it: I like words. It's why I write, why I
fail at attempt to do crossword puzzles, and why I've become a huge fan of a big game called 7 Little Words.
7 Little Words is a word puzzle game, but unlike a crossword puzzle, except you're supplied with combinations of letters you need to solve the puzzle. Each "level" has only seven words to solve on it, hence the game's name.
To spell out a word, simply tap the boxes containing the letters you need, in the order you'd spell the word. When something is suitably spelled out, press the Guess button to see if it's correct. If it is, the clue will be bolded and the correct word will appear alongside it. If incorrect, there's no penalty! The letters are simply returned to you.
Another point to mention is that combinations of letters can only be used for a specific word, so as you fill out more of your list, guessing the last words is easy, as there's usually only six or so boxes left.
7 Little Words is free to install and comes with one free puzzle zone. You can buy more puzzle zones for 99 cents. Each puzzle zone comes with at least 30 puzzles inside of it, so there's lots of gameplay to be had.
This is a fun game that isn't too difficult it's off-putting, but is still challenging enough to make your brain work a little bit. If you're up for a bit of word mania or just want to keep the ol' noggin greased up, I'd definitely check this out.
