Search for the word listed on top of the grid, clicking the letters in the correct order. The letters do not need to be touching each other, so keep your eyes peeled!If you get stuck, try using a hint, or even skip a difficult word. Don't let time run out before you find all the letters of a word, or the game will be over!

Fun game, but needs more challenge

I found myself 'handicapping' myself by waiting for the timer to go down 2/3rds the way and such, it seems the time doesn't get any faster past level 8 or so... I was so bored by level 20 that I just quit the game. it needs to be faster paced or else it gets tedious just to keep playing. I really did enjoy the game though, for the first while I was having fun. the thing of every letter changing was a bit confusing at first, but I think overall it adds to the merit of the game by forcing people to rely more on hunting skills and reaction than rather memory.

Not bad, but...

I can see room for improvement here. You've got a good scoring system that puts the person's ability to recognise letters and hand-eye coordination to the test, but there were a couple of things that I think could be done to improve it:

1) Have the same grid for all of the words - remove the letters that have been clicked and slide them down, before replacing with new letters from the top. That way people play along with an evolving grid that doesn't confuse them, by making them have to search for the letters which have been shuffled all the time.

2) Throw challenges out there - if a certain letter gets to the bottom, the player loses a life, points or the like. Then it's up to them to spell words with that letter in, or avoid the letters underneath until a word with that letter crops up.

Other than that, you've got a nice game laid out here. Good graphics, good gameplay, slightly annoying childish "level up" and "time bonus" comments, but you can't like everything :P
