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!

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.

I have been a long time player of seven little words! And I saw monkey wrench is similar! I am blind trying to play this game using voiceover! Like I play Larry kings word search and one thing that they have done is label the letter tiles and the voiceover user taps the beginning letter and it makes an auditory clicking sound then they tap the end letter and it makes a chiming sound! Then the word disappears from the list! I have tried to play all of your games as a voiceover user and seven little words is nicely done!

Always fun....not too difficult....not too easy


I have been playing this game every day since the app was available. Love it. I have no problems with crashing, bugs, ads etc. Please don't discontinue the app. I would even pay a small one time fee to continue playing.....and that is saying a lot since I rarely find the need to purchase an app.
