Wordsearch and Anagrams:
Wordsearch is just like the classic word searches you played as a kid.
Use the DS stylus like a pencil to circle words hidden in a
letter-filled screen. The more difficult the puzzle, the larger the
block of letters you'll need to scan.
In Anagrams, players are given six random letters that must be
arranged to spell out three-, four-, five- or six-letter words. Even
if you don't identify every suitable combination, you only need to
find a majority of possible words to move on to the next level.
