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. You can get some help along the way by utilizing hints and clues. Word² includes 80 levels in all.

Word² is available for free today only (11/22). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 65 ratings.

The throttle is located in the bottom left corner of the screen and a speedometer is seated in the bottom right. Just tilt to steer. There are no rules or complicated maneuvers to learn. Simply enjoy the experience and take in the scenery. You’re able to record your flights and play them back, or share them with the world via YouTube.

PocketWings: Discovery Island is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 31 ratings.
