Word Search Pics for Android is nothing more than a straightforward app for completing word searches. If you enjoy word searches then this app touts that it has over 10,000 word searches and over 100 categories.
There isn’t really anything taxing this game could do to push your device to its limits, so performance is great. However, I found that the app’s design was just flat out bad. When you open it you’re greeted with a face full of pictures. There is a picture for every category, and there doesn’t appear to be any rhyme or reason as to how they are organized. Swiping left or right will show you even more categories.
You have a few word search “packs” that come when you first download the game. I’m not sure if they’re different from everyone, but I had the animals, fairy tales, and games pack. As you search through the puzzle you’ll notice a small timer and some pictures. The idea is that you will look at a picture and find the word related to the picture in the puzzle. The timer I mentioned before counts down slowly from 5. You’re basically counting down how many coins you will be rewarded when you find the next word. These coins are used to buy other search packs.
Word Search Pics is a fun word search game that incorporates pictures, which actually makes the searches a little bit harder. Performance was great, and all of the different word search packs can be obtained by simply playing the game.
