Word-A-Maze is an amazing word search type puzzle creator and game for the iPhone and iPad. It allows you to create unlimited puzzles from your own words or provided wordsets with a secret message in every puzzle! Provided wordsets includes nearly 100 themes, 1000+ secret messages and more than 80,000 words. In addition, 14 News themes grab live headlines for your puzzles.

Word-A-Maze is the only IOS word search puzzle with secret messages. It is also the only word search puzzle with ability to enter your own words and/or secret message to create a personal puzzle. It also uniquely delivers unlimited number of puzzles. All for less than a buck!

It creates a new personalized word search puzzle each and every time! Once all the words are found, only your personalized secret message will remain and be displayed!
All puzzles are saved and marked as Unplayed, Started or Solved. Creation date, puzzle size, title and number of words are all indicated. Any puzzle can then be replayed or continued where left off. Three typical puzzles are provided as samples upon initial use of the game. Any puzzle can be deleted, modified, emailed or restarted at any time.

For new puzzle creation, an internet connection is required. Existing puzzles can be replayed even if locked in a lead closet. If going on a trip abroad and you don't enjoy all those wonderful roaming data charges, we recommend you stock up on lots of Word-A-Maze puzzles before departure!!

The puzzle appears on two or more pages, one containing the puzzle grid and the other the puzzle words. A simple finger swipes moves the users back and forth.

To select a word, touch the first, and then last letters of the word (or vice versa). If it is a valid puzzle word, the word is circled on the puzzle page and the word is crossed off on the word page.

The number of words selected/total appears in the puzzle title. When the last word is selected the secret message is displayed!

Letters or Numbers (no special characters are accepted) may be used in the wordsets or secret messages.
