This is an unusual word puzzle game that really keeps you thinking with its challenges. You first start with word pyramids, and you try to guess the words to build the pyramid in a Hangman style game, in guessing the letters of each word. Every time you miss, you lose a little of your health bar or some of your helping tools. You get bonuses for solving words quickly, and some helping icon in the word puzzles themselves. Some of these tools will slow down the clock for you, or cross out letters in your alphabet key to let you know those letters aren’t supposed to be used. You want to keep that health bar in the blue, because it does not reset with each new pyramid. That’s all you get, when the health bar goes to red, you’ll have to make the correct guesses or it’s game over. The words are common enough to be found in any Scrabble dictionary, but guessing them letter by letter is really rough. There are also other puzzles to keep your little team of explorers going through into their adventure. The graphics are pretty basic for a casual game, nothing too impressive there, but this is a word puzzle, and unlike the hidden object games, the detail does not have to be that spectacular.
If you like word puzzles, then Amazing Pyramids might be exactly what you are looking for, but don’t get upset if you have to make several new game starts. There are some pretty tricky words in there.
