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!

A new studying challenger has appeared! This word game combines the satisfaction of seeing a board cleared of blocks along with the practice needed to master a foreign language.

Block by block, a character or letter will drop from the top of the screen. You will need to guide it, placing it near other letters so that you can make a word and clear the board. If you accidentally put it into the wrong place, simply tap adjacent letters and they will swap places, which can be done multiple times to grab that needed letter from the edge of the screen!

▲ See your language map laid out before you with stages and landmarks!

▲ Words on the sheet give more points, but you can practice any words you want to remember.

▲ Touching the word highlights it, and the green check box will make the letters ninja-vanish!

The backgrounds will even change depending on languages, allowing you to overlook the Eiffel Tower, Mt. Rushmore, or Tokyo Tower. In addition, the combination of sound effects with the background music is compelling, and you might find yourself seeking letter combinations just to hear it again!

It is not only the words that will have your mind staying sharp! In the later levels, there are obstacles that you will need to weave your words around, such as walls, so try to think several steps ahead. Learning a foreign language does take a lot of time and energy - but it doesn't need to be boring!

Every level contains a grid of colorful tiles and a motivational statement with missing characters. To fill in the blanks, you need to match three or more identical objects and collect the letter tiles. The moves are limited, so you can choose to complete the message by guessing the right letters. Special items are available to help you out, such as the cross-clearing white lilies, color-picking butterflies, and more.

Be careful; one mistake can end the game. If you answered correctly, then you will see a lovely image of the quote and its author. Have a peaceful and enjoyable time acquiring all of the messages and clearing levels with live outdoor backgrounds.
