A word search puzzle can be solved by browsing the whole grid, row after row, letter after letter, and try to find words in the 4 direction (2 horizontal: from left to right or from right to left backward, 2 vertical: from top to bottom and from bottom to top) or even 8 directions with diagonals, in order to find words. A complementary technique consists in aiming the unused letters.
The goal of the game is usually to find a solution/answer word consisting of remaining letters that are never used by any word, it can be an answer like a word or a secret message.
Some words can be placed twice in the grid but will only be displayed once by dCode.
The dCode word search word finder is fully automatic and can search the answer words automatically (yeah, that's cheating), it colors the grid with the found / scratched words and indicates their coordinate (line, column).
Example: PUZZLE (1,2) ↘ indicates that the word PUZZLE was found, its first letter is line 1, column 2 and goes in the south east direction.
The program accepts grids by copying and pasting. If copying is not an option, take a picture or a screenshot of the original grid and use an OCR software (optical character recognition/scanner) to quickly copy and paste the grid.
Several tricks for playing and find solutions with word-search/word-hunt puzzles:
- Use dCode to find the words and get the answers to each grid
- Do not rush, take your time not to miss out on words
- Use an exhaustive search criss-cross strategy (from top to bottom, bottom to top, left to right, right to left, diagonals etc.)
- By the end, select a word and search only this one among the remaining letters
