How to play Search for the Start
1. (When needed) Drag the pieces to swap them.
2. Tap the first letter (the start) of the word you've made.

Score big points by linking words from the same starting letter!
Letters can be linked vertically or side-to-side (not diagonally).

3. When words are flying you can open the dictionary by tapping on them.

Whenever you think, “what was that word again?” just tap it!
You can view the chosen vocab afterwards from the record menu.
The record menu can be viewed by letter.
If you don't need the word anymore, you can delete it; it's your own personal dictionary!

4. The fuse is ignited when time runs out. If the bomb blows up, it's a miss.
Even if you link with a bomb piece it's a miss, so be careful.

- Hints -
When you're stumped tap Shake. (Don't shake your device though.)
Definitely don't tap Shake when you've run out of uses.

By doubling-tapping the music button you can
switch between chiptune beats. Change it up to suit your mood.

- Question selection -
From wonderful words to not-so-wonderful words,
everything in the enormous iOS built-in dictionary is included in the questions and solutions.

Questions are created for each play
so you'll always be able to play with a fresh feeling!
