Check out this Twisted and Quirky Word Search Game – iPad App Review

Quirky Word Search LogoI am a huge fan of word search games. I am a little embarrassed to admit it, but I even like them more than crossword puzzle games. It’s because you don’t have to think, you just have to look. When I was in college, I loved doing word searches to turn my brain off for a while when I was studying. Quirky Word Search may make your brain work a little bit more, but it is still a fun way to pass the time when you are bored.

The game is simple. Find the words that are hidden amongst the many letters on the grid. The complexity comes with trying to find words when the letters are upside-down, and backward. How do you know if that is an “M” or a “W”?
