Wordscapes - A handful of letters to puzzle over

Wordscapes from developer studio PeopleFun is a puzzle game in which players have to try to find certain words, similar to a crossword puzzle. However, there is a trick to this. Each level specifies the letters from which the words must be formed. In the first levels this is still relatively easy. For example, the game shows three rows and the three letters U, S and A. Three words or terms are then to be formed from these. In the example you would be able to form "sow", "off" and "USA".

Later, however, the puzzles become much more challenging. Because not only the number of available letters increases with increasing difficulty. The number of rows of letters also increases and the rows become longer overall. This is because multiple use of the letters is also possible, depending on the level.

The goal of the game is to finish the individual puzzles with as few mistakes as possible and thus collect points. Because the more points you have, the faster you'll unlock new backgrounds that you can use to compete in new levels in Wordscapes.

Puzzles for every level of difficulty

The gameplay of Wordscapes is quite simple. You have under the rows of words to be filled in the letters you need to work with for the particular puzzle. With a simple touch, you select the first letter of the word you want to form. Then you move your finger to the next letter, gradually forming a line of letters. When you have found the right word, it is automatically integrated into the puzzle and you can directly form the next word.

There are various possible combinations that can be formed from the anagrams. It can also happen that a word can be formed twice, namely in the singular and in the plural. Therefore, it is worthwhile to cheerfully try around, which words fit. There are also hidden bonus words that you can unlock by clever trial and error. These words give you coins at the end of a level, which you can use to unlock new backgrounds or help, for example.

If a solution to a puzzle doesn't immediately catch your eye, you don't have to despair. Wordscape also offers a few aids that the game wants to use to help you reach your goal. With the shuffle function you can rearrange the letters in your input field. Sometimes this already helps to get a new perspective. On the other hand, if you click on the arrow, you can click on an empty space on the puzzle to see the letter that needs to go in that space. Clicking on the light bulb will show you the first letter of a possible word, and using the rocket will randomly reveal letters in the puzzle that you haven't discovered yet.

However, in order for the game to keep its crispness, you don't just get the features as a gift. You have to earn them, for example, by finding bonus words or unlocking new levels. Then you also have a limited number of the helps, so you should always try to come up with a solution yourself first, before you get down to the little pickers.

What do users say about Wordscapes?

Most users are very fond of Wordscape. The game principle is easy to understand and the individual puzzles are short and crisp. This makes the game perfect for short breaks, fun on the go or even a bit of brain jogging in free minutes. The various backgrounds that can be unlocked also offer a nice change.

However, some players complain that the word finding doesn't always work. Sometimes words are not recognized that should actually be logical. Such mistakes then make puzzling all the more difficult until the correct solution is found. Nevertheless, Worldscapes is fun overall and a pleasant break filler.

Tutorial installation / de-installation on iOS

This is how easy it is to install and uninstall / delete iOS apps (applies to iPhone and other iOS devices):

The installation of apps is basically possible on iOS via the App Store. The App Store contains both free and paid apps that can be installed on the iPad, iPod or iPhone. The prerequisite for use is an Apple ID, which can also be created free of charge (this ID is also required for free apps).

1. In the AppStore, the user selects the appropriate app using the search or categories. To the right of the app icon there is a "load" button that is pressed.

2. In the next step, the user must log in with the Apple ID. If the ID has already been used for an app, all you have to do is enter the password - alternatively, Touch ID or Face ID can be used for new devices.

3. After entering the password or after authentication, the app is finally loaded and automatically installed. Entering the password is also necessary for free apps.

4. The app is loaded at the next free space on the home screen and can be opened there - alternatively, the "Load" button becomes the "Open app" button so that the app can be opened directly from the AppStore.

Uninstall apps in iOS

Deleting apps and programs on iOS is very easy and can be done directly from the home screen.
1. In the first step, the user looks for the app that needs to be deleted and presses the app icon with one finger for a long time.

2. The mode opens in which the home screen can be edited. An "X" appears at the top left of every app. Clicking on the "X" opens another dialog that asks you to confirm the deletion.

3. "Delete app" is selected here. Some apps save user data (e.g. scores) - therefore iOS can ask the user for some apps whether the app data should also be removed. If the app is reinstalled in the future, stored information can easily be reused.
