Word² will test your vocabulary and your patience. Each level features a square with scrambled letters. Your objective is to put the square back together by rearranging the letters so that each row and column pair have the same word reading both vertically and horizontally. The game starts you off easy with squares that are three-by-three, but eventually you’ll work your way up to six-by-six squares. Hopefully, at least.
