Simplicity takes a fun turn with Word Fit Puzzle

created on by  in Mobile word games

Word Fit Puzzle is a different twist on the typical crossword puzzle. In this game, you fit the words into a grid by taping on them or carrying them down to the grid with a swipe motion. The aim is to make sure the right words fit within the number of letters. It’s a classic take on the crossword games that you will often find in magazines, where all you need to do is fill them in.

When you first get started, you may think that you are about to enjoy a typical crossword puzzle, but you will quickly find that the there are no typical clues. This is the beginning of the magic of this game.

Get Started with Tap and Fill Puzzles

A detailed tutorial at the bottom of the landing page is the best place to kick off your Word Fit journey. Once read, here is how to get started.

Fill in the words into the grid, and you can choose two ways to do this. There is the drag and drop, or the tap the boxes and then the word.

It is possible to rearrange the words by tapping onto a ward and holding for about two seconds. Then you can drag it to another position.

For this game, it is possible to make the puzzle grid larger or smaller with a zoom function. Simply zoom in and out the same way as you would when taking a picture.

Three Buttons for Your Help

There are three buttons at the bottom of the screen. These are delete, extra letter and show wrong.
To delete, all you need to do is tap on the word and then press the delete button.

For a hint, there is the Extra Letter button, which will make a random letter appear on the board. This will make it easier for you to fit the word.

Then there is the Show Wrong button which you can select, and then choose a word where you think you have made a mistake in placement. If there is an error, then the word will glow red, and you can decide to remove it from the board. It is worth noting that every hint that you play is timed, so you need to make use of them quickly.

In the puzzle, you may want to know the meaning of a word. If you double click on the word, it can take you to a Wikipedia page that explains what the word means. So, you can play and learn as well.

Each of the games is timed, so when you get to the end of the game, you see your score, the difficulty level, and your achievements. You can then choose whether you want to change the difficulty or keep going with a new game.

One thing that stands out about the layout of Word Fit is that it is definitely an old school application, lacking lots of modern features that make customization much easier. The settings menu is very long, with a simple, somewhat unattractive layout. Some of the options that you will find here include Language, Country, Active Dictionary, Display Settings including font size and colours, and the option to sign in using Google.

This also lets you know about the age of the app, as the Google+ platform was shut down all the way back on April 2nd, 2019. It is also possible to keep track of your high scores, as well as your achievements. However, it is worth noting that to access your achievements, you will need to sign in again using your google account to access Google Play.

You can share your gaming experience on multiple platforms by simply choosing the share option.

This game is available in a variety of languages including Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, French, German, Arabic, Italian, Bulgarian, Indonesian, Croatian, Serbian, Czech, Ukrainian, Hungarian, Slovak and more.

The Advertisements in the Game

The game seems to be older and has not updated in a long time. Thus, the screen is not fully optimised for mobile phone screens. When playing, there are adverts that appear on the bottom portion of the screen. These block some of the key buttons within the game, such as the delete and validate buttons, which make the game a little less smooth. There are also long video adverts that are played in between some of the levels of the game, and you cannot skip the ads, you need to watch them to the end. The adverts within this game seem intrusive and take away from the pleasure of the gaming experience.
