What's the Word? A picture puzzle of a game

What's the Word? is a nice Windows Phone puzzle game to pass the time with. What's the Word? presents you with four pictures and you are tasked with figuring out what common descriptive word they share.

I have to admit the puzzles start out really easy but slowly pick up speed and can be somewhat challenging.

What's the Word? is a rather simple game and an equally simple lay out. The main menu has options to jump into the game, view the help section, mute the sound and review the game over in the Windows Phone Store.

The game has 192 puzzles spread out across nine albums. Albums vary in size and progressively get more challenging. You are given a thumbnail view of each puzzle to let you skip around or you can just start at the first puzzle and work your way through things.

The puzzle page will present you with four pictures with a similar descriptive word. At the top of the page you'll see the album number and your current coin count. Coins are earned as you complete the puzzles and can be used to purchase hints.

Below the pictures is your answer box and letter choices to complete the answer. The Question Mark pulls up your hint options that range from reveal a single letter to remove letters from the letter field (narrows down your choices).

Again, the puzzles start off fairly simple and build in strength. They really never get overly difficult but the game is an entertaining way to pass the time. I can see What's the Word? appealing to a wide age group and it may not be a bad game to add to your Windows Phone Kid's Corner.

What's the Word? is a free, ad-supported game for your Windows Phone that you can pick up here at the Windows Phone Store.
