What it is: This free online Facebook game/puzzle doesn’t require any download or log-in.
Brain Benefits: strategy, planning, attention, visual processing, sound blending, segmenting
What I love: This game is similar to a word search puzzle, except that as you find the correct words under the given theme, the letter blocks shift down. There’s a hint button and the option to play with friends and you can claim prizes along the way. The first few levels are very easy, but the game gets more challenging as you continue. There are guidelines that show the number of letters in each word, which helps you decipher if the word is “STAIR” or “STAIRS” so you can play if the final letter S needs to be saved for another word. Words can go in horizontally or vertically.
What I would change: The game takes a while to get challenging, so I recommend this for an older child, teen or simply entertainment for an older adult looking to pass time and boost their brain skills. Also, there are some ads, but they don’t seem very frequent. Plus, watching an ad can help you claim bonuses.
