Word Crush is a lesser known, but entertaining game. At first glance, Word Crush is reminiscent of the classic Tetris car. Except for towers made of blocks, the two games have nothing in common. Word Crush is about finding the words in the jumble of letters. At the beginning of each round we are presented with a new interface consisting of dozens of towers of letters.
The words are hidden in these constellations that we have to look for. If we find a word, we can highlight it by hovering over the matching letters. The found words and corresponding letters are then pulled from the tower thus creating new word combinations.
Word Crush can be played solo or competitively with others, depending on your needs. Progress can then be compared at any time via a separate ranking. Although I personally don’t like Word Crush visually, the gameplay could hardly be better. The mechanics are simple, the puzzles also fit in between thanks to their compact structure and the choice of words helps expand vocabulary.

Supertype follows a very simple yet challenging concept. about more than 100 levels Distributed we find lines in different arrangements. These lines can be completely straight or crooked, are arranged differently from each other and usually contain gaps.
If there are no strokes, we may have to paint them ourselves. However, messages are included in all cases. We have to use these letters to collect or touch one or more points in the respective level. The respective letter shapes play a crucial role. While an ‘o’ rolls down, for example, an ‘r’ is needed at some point, which has to fall in a targeted manner. Sometimes one letter is enough Point collectionbut in some levels, you need complete words to capture many points.
The special concept of the ultra mode attracted me during testing. The tasks are not easy and some progress Puzzle fun. It’s a pleasure too one-time payment, which is due. A little over €2 is required, and fortunately there are no subscriptions or microtransactions here.
