Don’t you love the smell of the alphabet, fresh from the oven? Pull out a baking tray of cookie letters and aim to spell out hidden words in a puzzle game that will quiz your vocabulary and put your spelling skills to the grindstone!

Tap and swipe between characters to piece together words, with the number of letters and phrases needed to complete the level listed on the top half of the screen as blank boxes. Need a little help? Tap the ‘Shuffle’ button to move the letters around the tray as many times as you like, and see if inspiration strikes! You can also use some coins to be shown a letter by tapping the ‘Hint’ icon.

▲ Creating a word with the same amount of letters as the starred boxes grants you a bonus coin boost!

▲ Try your hand at completing challenging ‘Special Levels,’ but if you aren’t up for it, tap the ‘Pass’ icon to skip it and try again another time.

Complete each level to gradually move up the corporate cuisine ladder from ‘Home Baker’ to ‘Sous Chef,’ with each step accompanied by additional word cookies that add to the challenge of word sleuthing and will stretch your concentration to its limits.

If you are up for the challenge, additional ‘Special Levels’ are scattered throughout each section that build upon the level before it by adding an extra cookie and a bevy of extra words to scratch your head to. Solve them to score dozens of extra coins, and work your way to becoming a master chef and world-class wordsmith!

Solitaire may be a game of cards, but the concept behind solving it can apply to any stacking arrangement. The goal here is to make sure that all the identical train cars are lined up and joined together. They can be moved from the left or right side but only if they match. A powerful AI will also assist you in case of a move that makes solutions impossible.

The puzzle’s difficulty can prove a worthy match to anyone who loves honing their observational and problem-solving skills. There are more than 200 levels to beat and several of them even contain special objectives (such as solving within a time limit or within a set number of moves). If you think it is high time you moved on from stacking cards, then maybe lining up these trains can be your next feat of puzzle-solving prowess!

▲ How quickly can you unscramble these trains and link up all the identical ones together?

▲ Test your mettle across the board with puzzles that come with extra challenges.

Connect the dots… seems easy, right? Don’t be fooled – you will be needing to call upon your brain power to help solve the increasingly challenging levels in this puzzle of melodious line making!

The aim is to create a connected line between two entrance points by tapping and dragging across the blue tiles to turn them green. There is also a catch - you need to use all of the tiles on the grid, and the same entrance point can’t be used twice!

▲ Tap the pause button on the top-right at any time to come back to your place in the puzzle later.

▲ Made a mistake? Tap and drag over your already made line to erase it!

▲ Tap onto the red icon from the home screen to choose between level packs with “episodes” of levels.

As the puzzles grow more complex, you may need to make use of the tools at your disposal. Tap the magnifying glass icon to zoom in and out, the brush to clear the grid, or the light-bulb for a hint when you are stuck. In the case of hints, you only have a certain amount available – use them wisely!

Think you have got the hang of it? Compare your scores with friends and players from around the world through the global and Facebook leaderboards for a boost of motivation - or smug satisfaction. See if you can be one of the coveted few to complete all 1,000+ levels!
