Words3 has a unique Machine Learning component that helps build better puzzles with every game played. Also, used Mobile Services for both gameplay stats and analytics.
Players attempt to locate as many words as they can on the current puzzle within the 3 allowed minutes. Words are worth different score values depending on complexity and obscurity, with the final score and number of words found determining the player's position on the resulting leaderboard. There are 3 different puzzle shapes which each test a different balance of memorization, spatial thinking and linguistics.
