A word search game challenges many aspects of cognitive thought, and it is a natural fit for a quick pick up and play game for the iPhone.
With Pockster WordFind we focus on this aspect of game playing. We have incorporated automatic saves to the game so that you can always get back to the game you were playing in case Life happens. The state is saved for each puzzle, which means that you can try one puzzle of WordFind, stop it and select another of the 50 available puzzle, and come back to it at a later date without losing your place on either puzzle.
The finger interface has been fully implemented with intelligent character selection. This simplifies selecting words across the puzzle in one of the major eight possible directions and limits finger drift onto the wrong cells.
Also to make playing easier, the characters are displayed above the puzzle itself, providing a clear view of the word being selected without requiring a look around the finger. Additionally, the word selection endpoint is automatic, letting a quick swipe pick out the desired word. Together these allow for simple and easy playing without the need for a keyboard or constant zooming and panning motions.
Pockster WordFind provides for a satisfying game experience while exercising the mind. Cognitive escape is as close as your iPhone.
