Warning! The app I am about to review is highly addictive and will consume hours of your time. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT attempt to play Just 2 Words unless you have at least 30 minutes of uninterrupted iPad time to devote to this game. Playing this game will result in mental stimulation, increased vocabulary and hours and hours of fun.
Oh, how I wish that disclaimer would have been on this game before I started playing because HOLY COW it is FUN! Just 2 Words is the latest and greatest from word puzzle mastermind David Hoyt. This app is exactly what it sounds like: word puzzles that are “Just 2 Words”. Photographs or pictures appear on the screen that makes up a two word phrase and you have to try and guess the phrase. So, for example, a picture of a woman looking over a cliff that has a very broad view and a picture of an umpire gesturing with his thumb would be “Far Out”. Some of the puzzles are very complicated and some are pretty easy, but whatever the puzzle it is challenging, entertaining and fun! With each puzzle you solve, you earn coins that you can use to purchase “hints” if you are having difficulty solving the puzzles. Or, you can purchase coins in-app for an additional charge.
Honestly, this app is one of my all-time favorites. I absolutely love word games and David Hoyt is a genius when it comes to creating them. I think he has perfected the art of creating games that are simple in concept yet complex enough to challenge you and make you think and this app definitely fits the bill. If you are looking for a way to increase your vocabulary or simply pass the time, pick up Just 2 Words today! But…don’t say I didn’t warn you when you can’t put it down!
