World’s Biggest Word Search Now Available on Windows Phone With New Mode

Popular word search game World’s Biggest Word Search from developer Appy Nation has made the jump from iOS and Android to land right on Windows Phone 8’s doorstep and it brings with it an all-new playing mode.

The new mode, Kids’ Puzzle introduces 100 puzzle grids to solve and 1,000 words to find.

There’s also a “MAMMOTH puzzle,” with 5,000 words hidden in a grid of over 60,000 letters. The developer says the puzzle is “hand-crafted with over 350 carefully selected and edited themes and many secrets and challenges to discover.”

“World’s Biggest Wordsearch has been a huge success with grown-up word search fans, so adding a Kids’ Puzzle was the next logical step,” said Pete Williamson, MD, Supersonic Software. “As for the future, there are certainly other types of puzzle that could be adapted to the ‘World’s Biggest’ format – we’ll have more details to announce very soon.”
