How Dirty are you? – Find all 331 filth related words hidden in this dazzling painting.
Roll Up! Roll Up! The Filth Fair is Coming to Town! The Filth Fair is a hidden word game based around some amazing artwork. Every object in the beautiful main image can be selected by touch. Once selected you need to guess the word (or words) that describes that object. To help you in this challenge there is a cryptic clued, a simple hint and a jigsaw jumble. You can also earn 'Wild Stars' that reveal some of the hidden letters. Objects in the game have more than one word associated with them, which means in total there are 331 words to find! Can you reveal all of the hidden dirt in the Filth Fair? Medals and a grand trophy await the curious mind that can!
Filth Fair was produced by the Wellcome Trust and developer Toytek for the 'Dirt Season' of events running from March till September 2011, see www.dirtseason.org for more information. However the game can be enjoyed at any time.

What's New in Version 1.0.1
Fix for Random Region Button
Interesting and fun.. With minor issues.
Certainly an interesting and challenging word puzzle game this... Love the interface and idea behind it and recommended for cryptic crossword and puzzle players who like to be challenged.
The problems are minor enough to not hinder play too badly. Small object selection is hit n miss and a better introduction as to how to play would be nice.. There is a verbose intro to cryptic cross wording concepts but not for how the interface/play works.
I find it somewhat amusing that American users complain about Britishisms in the content.. It is not unusual in harder British puzzling for foreign colloquialisms and concepts be included for the purpose of making a puzzle challenging and therefore mind broadening.
Cryptic Clues Perhaps Too Cryptic
Very interesting app, but the cryptic clues are too culturally specific. For example, one clue uses the word "musician" to refer to the initials for "Royal Academian." It's doubtful that an American would make that connection. As a previous reviewer said, the cryptic clues are too difficult and the puzzle clues too easy. Otherwise, an innovative idea.
This is one of the best free games out there. It is fun, original, interesting, and educational as well as challenging. In addition there are no in app purchases required. All completely free. I would love to play more games like this.
