How to Play (Quick Start)

  • Scrambled letters are at the top.
  • Unscramble them to the slot(s) below by touching them (or dragging or rearranging).
  • If needed, you may use the hint or get the first three letters.

That’s it! You can pick up the rest as you play the game. This series of articles has a ton of pictures and shows various features of scrambleZest.

Primary Mode

The scrambles with 10 or fewer letters are displayed as shown in Figure 1.

  • The word/phrase/answer is scrambled up at top.
  • Touch these letters to automatically move them to the next available slot at the bottom.
  • Or, you can drag a letter to a particular slot.

You can do the same to the letters in the slots area; just touch a letter to automatically move it to the next available spot up top. You can drag a letter there as well.

Advanced Mode

The scrambles over 10 letters are displayed as shown in Figure 2. As you touch letters, they will move to the Big Slot at the bottom.

Touch the Big Slot (Answer Bar) to move all the letters back up. To move just the last letter up, touch the button with UP arrow.

Hint Box includes some information about the set (of which this scramble is part of). It also contains specific hint text that helps unscramble.

You can also get the first three letters. The lower-left button changes to Letter 1, Letter 2, and Letter 3 as you use letters. But, don’t use these letters too soon – you’ll take a hit on the score.

Result

After you touch or drag the last letter from top to the slots area, the letters will move up in the correct sequence. In the slots area the letters you chose correctly will have green background and incorrect letters will have red background.

In case of advanced UI (20-letter mode), the big slot at the bottom will turn red, if the word has not been unscrambled correctly. It will turn green for correct unscrambling.
