Description

Join Spike in this new space adventure in which he must travel through 27 missions in order to reach his destiny. Each mission will require the use of special skills to find and complete all the words found in deep space.

In each mission you will have to find and join syllables to complete all the words and finish the task. But beware new and different challenges await. Time may run out, moves may be counted or correct order must be followed, thankfully Spike has left green marks to help you follow the correct path.

A black hole may appear in some missions and swallow words if they are not completed in time, so stay on your toes and concentrate to finish the missions. Thankfully Spike has also created a practice environment in which you will able to create your own mission and gain skills to complete levels.

Syllable Word Search uses a unique memory card game and word search style game, that challenges players to form words by searching for syllables. Each of the 27 levels in Syllable Word Search provides increasing challenges to players.

The player must complete a level before proceeding to the next. Levels become more challenging as the player advances through the game: the list of words increases, words are presented by topics, 2 to 6 syllable words are introduced, green cards are no longer available, duplicate syllables are presented on the board, among many other challenges.

For advance players, Syllable Word Search has the option to create your own mission. In this option the player selects the characteristics and complexity of the board.

Review Highlights:

This is just as the name suggests, you search the grid for the syllables in each given word. There is also a time element so you're trying to beat the clock and improve your skills.

Being able to choose a theme for the searches made it more interesting. It held my son's interest and attention.

Overall, this is a very good product that my son enjoys. My daughter is just a little young for it, but wants to try it as well, which is nice to see. My son has been asking to do more work with syllables, and this was just the right fit for him. There are many levels of difficulty that can be set up for it so it can be used for many age groups from about grade two on upwards to adulthood (yes, even I played now and again to try to beat the clock - and it's more challenging than you might think). This isn't a product we use everyday, but it's a great way to supplement an English program in a fun way and to sneak in a little extra practice without the kids feeling like it's 'more work.' We'll be keeping this app and using it for some time to come.
