Monkey Wrench is a fun word find quiz game with a twist that will challenge your brain – you have to use the clues to figure out what the hidden words are! If you like crossword puzzles and wordsearch games, you’ll love Monkey Wrench!

The answers will be about movies, food, science, sports, music, fashion, history and many other subjects (with lots of fun wordplay) – the 3 difficulty levels and helpful hints will give you just the kind of fun word-searching fun spelling game you’ve been looking for. Words are hidden in a grid, but the monkey wrench in the quiz that will tease and challenge you is that before you can find the words, you need to work out what they are!

Each puzzle consists of a grid of hexagonal tiles with letters. Some tiles are shaded; these are the first letters of the clues that fit into the categories at the top of the screen (swipe sideways to see more categories). Trace or tap a path of connected tiles to select letters and spell out an answer. If your answer matches one of the clues spelling out the word, the tiles disappear and you will find yourself closer to solving the puzzle. Use your brain to hunt for all the clues to clear the tiles and win!

Monkey Wrench comes with one free bundle of 25 puzzles (with more puzzle packs available for purchase) and the three most recent daily puzzles are also available. Every puzzle has three difficulty levels – find the right one to tease and challenge your brain:

EASY shows you all the full answers to the clues you need to search for.
MEDIUM shows you only the first letters of each word.
HARD gives you nothing but blanks to fill in.

You can monkey around between difficulty levels hunting for answers by resetting the puzzle. You may also use the available hints to reveal the vowels of a clue, the last letter, or its location in the grid. Monkey Wrench is a puzzle challenge for all ages with categories to give everyone interesting challenges to solve. The daily puzzles will tease and challenge your brain while you try to hunt for the answers and unravel this fun and entertaining word quiz.

Monkey Wrench is no ordinary word game (crossword, anagram puzzle, wordsearch, etc.) – before you can find the words, you need to figure out what they are by using the clues provided. With three difficulty levels to tease and test you and terms to hunt for from pop culture, science, geography, history and so much more, Monkey Wrench is word-puzzling fun for the whole family!

The Monkey Wrench app comes with a free pack of 50 puzzles, free daily puzzles and more than 1000 additional puzzles available for purchase. Download Monkey Wrench today and play the most creative and interesting spelling quiz game that is as addictive as it is fun.

Love the game, hate the ads.

I too love the game and have purchased puzzle packs. However, for the past week, I have been seeing an ad after I play the daily game. I am one of those people who will generally buy the privilege to not see ads, but this is not even a choice! I did notice the choice is offered for the express version of your game, so perhaps I will switch to that - as I have done for seven little words app. In general, I think the games that are most successful at using this model are those that offer an opt out option, or, ask you if you want to watch an ad BEFORE the bonus is given.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We will keep it in mind.

Good game but one problem

The game is good,challenging, and enjoyable. My dislike is that when playing the daily free puzzle, I cannot turn off the sound in the ad. Sometimes it just isn’t appropriate to have sound, such as when in a waiting room, or on a line, or in any public place. Please allow us to turn off all sounds.

Also the ads are way too long for an app. Check out the way the Solitaire app does ads. I actually look at those ads. These are too loud and too long. So if I am going to play the free puzzles, I turn the sound off on my phone, tap on the daily free puzzle, put the phone down and walk away. When I come back I play the game. So the long ads have made me totally ignore them. Plus I rarely play the game anymore because of the ads.

Thank you for your detailed description. We want to improve how ads work in the app. It's true that you may have to mute your device's sound in order to mute ad audio, and we realize that is not ideal. Longer ads should be skippable after a few seconds. If that is not the case for you, please send details to We will continue to try to improve the ad experience, and we appreciate your feedback on it.

Why only 4 stars?

I love this game. And when I say that, I mean I LOVE this game. I have literally purchased every available new game pack (except the dailies, but that’s just because I play them nearly every day while I wait for new packs to become available).

So, why only 4 stars?

Since the new pack, “Sugarcane,” has become available I’ve been unable to play it. I made my purchase, but it still shows the price and won’t allow me to open it. I’ve attempted to purchase it again, thinking there was a glitch in the purchase, but it tells me it’s already been purchased and will be restored for free. The wrench then proceeds to spin...until it doesn’t and the game freezes forcing me to close the app. I powered down my phone and restarted. No change. I even tried to offload the app and reinstall, but it still just shows me that $1.99 instead of making the pack available to play.

This is truly my favorite word game on my phone (obviously). Please help me be able to play again.
