If you have played crossword puzzles either from newspaper or mobile games, then you should know how this game works. Word Cheese however has a unique approach to your standard crossword puzzle. Instead of filling up the boxes with letters by simply them directly, the game will feature jumbled letters on the lowermost portion of the game screen. The game is like a combination of classic Crossword puzzle and Anagrams. The challenge is not just about forming words but finding the right word to fit in the crossword boxes.
The mechanics of the game are very simple. As soon as the game begins, it prompts you to the crossword puzzle which contains boxes that are aligned vertically and horizontally. Underneath the puzzle are the letter tiles that are randomly jumbled. The number of boxes will indicate the length of the hidden word. If there are five boxes aligned vertically, it means that you need to form a five letter word to fill them. To submit the word, simply tap the first letter tile and drag your finger over the next tiles and connect them sequentially. If you are right, the letters fill up the empty boxes. Valid words that are not part of the puzzle goes through your Extra Word container which grant you bonus coins.
Hints, Shuffle and Special Boxes
The rate of difficulty in this game is drastically increasing as you progress. Higher levels tend to have lengthy words which makes it more difficult to guess. If you are having a hard time figuring out the word, you can always take advantage of the Hint feature. Simply tap the Bulb icon on the lower left corner of the game screen to reveal a random word on the puzzle. You must pay coins to use the hint feature. Coins are earned every time you submit a correct word.
To help you more in the game, you can also use Shuffle to rearrange the letter tiles. Unlike Hints, Shuffle can be used infinitely without paying any virtual coins. If you want to earn bigger coins, you can also take advantage of the special boxes. From time to time, you’ll encounter Butterflies and Stars. You will be encouraged to create a word where the butterflies and stars are placed. These tiles will have different effects. They can either double up the coins or reveal some letters on the crossword puzzle.
