Adding a mystery story puts a fun twist on typical word game apps, and this game does it well. The varying sizes of the spellsquares, difficulty levels, and hidden objects keep the story interesting and adaptable to different skill levels and interest. Word gamers will also enjoy the 60 puzzles in quick mode. For older players or those already used to mystery or hidden object games, though, the story mode may feel a bit too short and simple.
