Fancy doing a word search but don’t want to touch the newspapers because of germs? Understandable, if a little over-the-top. If you’re isolating yourself from everything other than your mega supply of snack and your games consoles, but still want to stare at a jumble of letters, Epic Wordsearch is here for you.
Lightwood Games has today released Epic Wordsearch on PS4 and PS Vita, as well as Nintendo Switch, and it really is epic in scope. There are several puzzles, each one with 1500 words to find. That’s… well, it’s mental, isn’t it? Most word searches have around 20, and I’ve not actually completed one since I was a kid. According to the developer, each puzzle will take around 10 hours to complete, and with four puzzles, that’s around 40 hours of word searching. If you’re dedicated enough, go for it. It might actually be good for all the old folks who are being forced to stay indoors, so think twice before scoffing at the idea of a mega word search that can compete in playtime with modern RPGs…
The puzzles included are:
Epic Food Word Search – Munch your way from breakfast to dessert, sample the wares of farmers, butchers and bakers and top it all off with a selection of seasonings and sauces!
Epic Animals Word Search – The furriest word search you’ll ever meet and want to tickle the tummy of! Go “eww” at creepy crawlies and “aww” at baby animals; visit the depths of the ocean and make a whole bunch of animal noises!
Epic Journeys Word Search – Fasten your seatbelt! Travel in luxury on the Orient Express, go off-road through the Australian outback, explore the ancient Silk Road and embark on an expedition to conquer Mount Everest!
Epic Sports Word Search – Score a home run, hit a hole in one, carry the ball all the way for a touchdown and catch a fish “this big”.
