**** lists WORDZABOUT as one of Today’s Best Apps! ****

A unique combination of Scramble, Word Association, Trivia and Hangman, WordZAbout is the perfect game for word nerds! Challenging and fun, it will keep you thinking!

WordZAbout presents the player with a mystery path of question marks that twists and turns across a board composed of hexagons. Beneath each question mark hides an image, a visual clue to the six scrambled words or phrases on the six sides of the hexagon. Your starting point is the only image initially visible. Every time you solve a word abutting another question-mark hexagon, that hexagon’s hidden image is unveiled – along with the next six scrambled words. When all six words of any hexagon are solved, its initial image vanishes to reveal a minor part of a larger picture beneath. After all the hexagons are solved, the ultimate brainteaser remains – a final Hangman puzzle relating to the full-board image and sometimes to one or more “theme” hexagons in the main puzzle.

Points are awarded as each word is solved, one point per letter. Each time all six scrambles of a hexagon are solved without using a clue, a successive multiplier is applied to the hexagon’s total score – so the second “clean hexagon” gets a doubled score, the third a tripled score and so on. Imagine the astronomical scores just waiting for you!

Scrambles too tough to solve? Contemplate the image – think laterally – little is as it seems! Flummoxed? Give up points or use tokens you’ve earned to purchase a hint – but sacrifice your “clean hexagon” bonus. Still bedeviled by that one word? You can give up points or use tokens to access the answer – while you get no points for that word, you can complete the puzzle. Access Search from within the app to look up your ideas – you don’t have to go out and come back in!

Pause the game at any time to see your stats – time on task, percent finished, how many clues and answers you’ve purchased. Choose your own strategy: not using any clues will give you huge scores but cost you in time; faster finishers get higher time bonuses at the end. Find your own formula for success so you can soar in the rankings!

Game Center enabled –compete against your friends in standings and accomplishments! Rankings maintained for each puzzle and for the entire collection of puzzles.

New puzzles released regularly to keep your brain sharp!
