Platform: Nintendo 3DS
For many of us word game enthusiasts, word searches are what we start on when we are just starting to learn to read. I was certainly no different. While they are not typically the most challenging of games, they are great for letting your brain idle and wasting some time. I personally play these when I’m watching something on TV that isn’t particularly enthralling.
I discovered Epic Word Search on the 3DS store about a year ago and was captivated. This isn’t your grandma’s word search. Instead, it consists of five boards, all containing 9 separate sections of word searches containing a category of the big board. In Epic Word Search 1, the categories are Rock and Roll, Movies, Food, TV and Sports. Each sub-category as somewhere in the area of 60 words, so each board has over 350 words to find. It’s challenging and fun and will take you hours to do. The categories for Epic Word Search 2 are Animals, Journeys, Ancient, America and Shakespeare.
If you like small games that can take up a lot of your time, like word games and have a Nintendo 3DS, then this one is for you!
