When you start German English WordSearch up for the first time, or when you press the NEW button, a fresh puzzle is created for you. Hidden in the puzzle are 10 or so different words. These words may be either english words or words in german, depending on your choice. To the left of the puzzle, a list of clues for the hidden words are provided, together with a description of the type of word you are looking for (noun, verb and so on). For all but the most difficult puzzles, the chosen words are displayed on the Help page (obtained by pressing the HELP button), together with the appropriate clue.
If you think you have spotted a word, drag your finger from the fist letter down to the last letter. If you are correct, the word changes colour and the appropriate clue is ticked. When you have found all the hidden words, a congratulatory message is displayed, telling you how long you took to solve the puzzle.
Press the NEW button to see a completely new puzzle, or move the SKILL LEVEL bar to the right to make the puzzles more difficult. If, at any time, you cannot find all the words, press the SOLVE button.
