So many word games with all sorts of variations are available. As long as you like word games, you're bound to find several you like on the App Store. Hive and Seek is an intriguing new game where you click through letter hexagons to reveal the hidden word. The good part is that you can set word lengths from 3 to 16 letters so that the young ones can play with smaller words and not feel left out! Words with 16 letters will definitely tickle your brain with their intellectual quality, and you may find that you just don't have as broad a vocabulary as you thought! Some of the brain teasing features of Hive and Seek are as follows:

- Set word length from 3 to 16 letters

- Discover new words and definitions

- Family friendly dictionary, inappropriate words removed

- 3-4 letter words go left to right

- 5-6 letter words go left to right, or up and down

- 7 or more letter words can go any direction

- Starting with 11 letter words, bees start covering letters

- At 12+ letter words, multiple bees come out and cover letters

The values of Hive and Seek are two-fold. This word game app is both educational and recreational. For instance, if you don't know the definition of a word, you are able to click on the "Define Word" button. Hive and Seek becomes super challenging when you choose to play with words having 11 or more letters. That's because bees come out of hiding to cover the letters! I find this to be a pretty neat touch and also like that word direction changes depending on the amount of letters. This all adds to the unique flavor of this game. Kids will enjoy the encouragement prompt when guessing the word correctly and the family friendly dictionary of Hive and Seek.

COOL CONCLUSION: "Hive and Seek is an exciting and challenging word game suitable for all ages that will have you learning, playing and using new words!"
