Free game alert: Zam BeeZee.
It’s another one of the word+puzzle hybrid type of “casual” games, but it’s free and a lot more varied and interesting than its less-than-free peers, like the boring BookWorm.
Word games are not my strength — not by far — but if I can enjoy a game like this for ten minutes without a hint of frustration, then that tells me that the game designers did something right. Finding words in a sea of letters is dull. Finding words in a hexagonal beehive with letter and word multipliers and bombs and wild cards? Somehow, that works.
There is a “buy now” link on the welcome page, but it doesn’t go anywhere. I don’t know what the for-pay plans for this game are, but enjoy it while it’s free.
