What the Developers say
In Guess The Word, the player learns basic English words. The purpose is to form the correct word as fast as you can from the given letters. Fragments of a drawing depicting the given word are revealed over time to help. The game also offers an attractive audiovisual setting.
This educational game created by Baked Games has simple and very intuitive control. By using the touch screen, the console allows you to touch and drag the letters so that you can arrange them into the correct words.
Guess the Word is a tolerable game for infants. In it, a picture will slowly reveal itself as you must arrange the letters to spell out the Word that is on the picture correctly. There is a vast array of images for your child to guess; however, the game becomes derivative after a few drawings, allow me to explain.
Gameplay & Replayability
Guess the Word provides a minuscule amount of entertainment. The drawing slowly appears as you arrange the letters correctly, well done. This, however, is probably satisfactory to the desired infantile target audience. The assortment of images seemingly never stops; the fun never ends!
In all honesty, replayability most likely depends if the child is in the mood. But we can expect this game to be played occasionally, but not too frequently.
Audio & Visual
There is a little amount to be said as the game provides little to no content. There is jolly and upbeat music in the background, and the teacher rewards each correctly guessed word with a compliment delivered with an abnormally high pitched voice, ideal for attempting to humour the young audience.
The game consists of the same setting, a canvas with the image, a teacher next to it and the jumbled letters at the bottom. The graphics are cartoonish and nothing crucial to the game.
Guess the Word delivers a small portion of education, an adequate job for the target audience. But there should be a wider assortment of challenges, not just the same thing forever. Overall, it’s a decent time waster and a competent education source for toddlers.
