Word find puzzles can be extremely therapeutic for those with a hectic lifestyle. Focusing all of one’s attention on a grid of seemingly random letters in an effort to find the words hidden in front of you helps block out all the busy noise of the world around.
Mega Multilingual Word Find is just the app to quiet the spinning in your head, no matter what language the spinning is in.
Not only does this app come with 20 different categories and four board levels, but players can add 10 different languages for just $0.99 per language. All 10 languages can be unlocked for only $4.99.
The puzzles range in difficulty based on their size. The small board has larger letters and fewer words. The puzzles at this level are great for new readers. If you are learning a second, or third, language, this may be a great place to start. As the board gets bigger, the letters get smaller and the list of words grows longer.
Players can also choose from 20 different categories, including body parts, sports and others. If you are unsure of what category you want, hit the random button to see what you will get.
Words are selected by either dragging your finger across all of the letters, or by taping the first and last letter of a word. When one is found, it will be highlighted in blue and the one on the list will flitter away.
As word puzzles go, this one seems a bit phoned in. I noticed that, often times, multiple words would share the same letter. For example, after finding the word, blue, I would also find the word black, bronze and brown, all sharing the same “B.” Many of the words would overlap to the point where a word would share every single letter in it with other words. Meanwhile, other areas of the board would remain untouched.
The user interface was very smooth. The board is uncluttered by unnecessary colors or graphics. There was never any glitches or stutters in the game.
What I liked: I liked the clean look of the design. It helps keep one focused on the puzzle. I also liked that there are so many categories to choose from, even in the free version.
What I didn’t like: I would like to see more attention paid to placement of words on the board. There should never be a time when four words share the same first letter.
To buy or not to buy: This is a relaxing and comforting app. It is free to play and very inexpensive to add additional languages. I recommend it for fans of word puzzle games.
