This game was fun! Yes, you heard right, I enjoyed a word game. You are given a keyword, and a scrambled word. You have 2 minutes to unscramble the word, and discover what the synonym for the keyword. After 20 seconds, you are given the first letter of the word you are trying to figure out, however, you know you won’t get as many points that way, now will you? There are bonus points, and double points, extra bonus rounds, and something called “spin” which comes up after 30 seconds of the present round. It says that this uses up some of the unused time, but I think I read it wrong, cause when I clicked on “spin” I lost the word I was doing, I think. I’m not sure, I was busy trying to come up with the right word, and every time I tried it I got lost! [You try it, if you think it is so funny!]

The shareware version only has the 5 round game; if you register this game you will get no delays, thousands of new keywords and synonyms, and 6 and 12 round game, reset scores and more.

This one is a keeper, it’s fun and when you get aggravated, who knows, maybe the kids can learn something!
