What's the Word? is a great game for Windows Phone, which already has an army of fans who own devices based on iOS and Android. With this game you can not only kill free time, but also train your attentiveness and memory. The main principle of the game is the association that arise in players while viewing pictures. Each new level consists of four photos. You can choose any of them to zoom in and explore the image more carefully.
Having studied all four images, you have to find what unites them. Toss associations in your mind, and perhaps you will find the answer to the question very quickly. Usually in the first challenges the answer is striking the eye. However, after a few levels you will begin to wrestle not only by yourself but also by others. It will be even more difficult later, and many players are already starting to look for answers up on the internet, but it is kinda self-deception. After all, the game was made for you to develop your logic and memory, and not to use other people's abilities.
Gameplay featuresThe most difficult thing in the game is that the hidden word can be anything. It can be an object or a person, action, feeling, mood, country, art, weather. That is, anything. In the game there are also clues. First is the number of empty cells which are displayed under the pictures. The number of letters that the hidden word consists of is the number of empty cells. The second tip is the letters themselves which are located at the bottom of the playing field. It is from these letters the hidden word should be.
Controlling and game currencyTo insert letters into the cells is very easy. Tap them one by one, and they will appear in their place. If you guess the word correctly, it will glow green, and then you will see a congratulating sign and receive remuneration in the form of $ 15. If the word is wrong, it will glow red. Then you need to click on each letter in the cells, so they fly back to the starting position. Having earned the required amount of money, you can buy a hint directly in the game menu. Depending on the sum of money you will be able to open any letter in a hidden word or remove wrong letters from the set located at the bottom of the screen.
Coins can be as well bought for real money, but someone will unlikely do this when you can just use Google and other search sites. The game consists of 192 questions which are divided into several separate locations. Having gained access to one location, you can choose any task, and if you fail to deal with it, you can return to the previous screen to select another. Access to a new location can be obtained only by earning a certain amount of points.
ResumeThe graphics in the game are of very high quality and are unlikely to cause you claims. The sound is quite modest and in some cases even monotonous, but it can be switched off in the settings. As opposed to other similar games, you can download What's the Word? for free and find yourself and your friends a great activity for a long time.
