Greatest Fun Word Game!
I love all word games but the greatest fun and challenge I have ever had is definitely in playng PictoWords!

What a treat to get away from all the eye strain I get, searching in all the HOGs, and have some fun. It's so nice to find a game that's enjoyable, addictive and never ending!
I play this at least once a day. You can stop anywhere in the game and continue or start a new game.
I didn't realize, when first playing, that when you've reached enough points to go to the next level, you don't have to. You can continue and earn more points.
Also, everything's alphabetical. Duh! That actually took me awhile to figure out too. And it helps to know that, when you're trying to figure out the word you need to make.
I highly recommend this game.

New twist on visual word games
Great little game - fun and challenging.
Appears easy to begin with but makes you think.

What's in a word?
I love playing word games, and this one has made it to the top of my list. Part of the challenge is trying to figure out what word the pictures represent. The rest is thinking outside the box by using them to help form other words.
Once you've solved a certain number of words in each round, you activate a choice to move to the next level - handy if you get stuck. To me, part of the challenge is in trying to work out all the words that they've found. Tip: in this game abbreviations such as EKG and MRI are used in the solutions (not really words, but that's part of the challenge).
There are also hidden words which you can find which don't count as part of your solutions list but which do reward you with bonus points. You also get bonus points for not using the hint button, and for solving all of the words on their list.
You really will need to give it a little longer than 2 minutes to get past the simple levels and into the more challenging ones - I'm up to level 63 and still loving it. If you like word games, give it a go.

Great little thinking game
fun and challenging -- starts easy then gets trickier -- you need to match tiles and letters to make AND spell words and phrases.

This game uses pictures and letters to make words. First you have to figure out what the pictures are. Then, for instance there might be a picture of an "out" door, and a picture of a "line". Put them together and you get "outline". Also available might be a "D", put all three together you get "outlined". There is enough variety that you can go through the game a few times before things get too familiar, and even at four times through, I am still having fun. It also includes Bonus games which are phrases or sayings. I do know most of these, but it doesn't lessen the enjoyment of the rest of the game.
Younger children may have a problem figuring out what the pictures are, but pre-teens and up # I am 66# should be able to do it.
I recommend it highly.

I loved it. All that's missing is fifty more of them. And why not? Same game, new words. I'd buy them all!

At long last, something different! This is a smart, fun, challenging little game. Easy to learn, addictive and really makes you think. I would like for it to have had harder Bonus Games and many more levels as I finished it way too quickly, but playing again from the start is fine too. Loved it!!

This game is a good brain challenge. You need to make words out of the pictures and letters presented. It really gives your brain a workout as you try to decipher exactly what the pictures represent. At first you are only shown the pictures. Once you make a word using a certain picture you are then given the word that represents it (i.e. one picture had a woman bandaging another person which stood for "aid"). Lots of fun. If you want something to challenge your brain, this game will definitely do that.

What an addictive little gem!
Such a simple game with such a simple concept that moves between oh so easy and Oh My Gosh!
You start out with a few single word pictures and a few random letters. Combine the pictures with the letters. Easy enough? How many words can you make? You would think it's so simple but it's surprising how having a picture can change your perception on spelling. If you're into word games this will definitely pull you in. No extra bells or whistles just great word play. Try the demo and see if you're not hooked at the end.
