Here’s a game for anyone who enjoys a fast-paced word puzzle! Alphen presents you with several words of equal length, one above the other. The only problem is that the letters have been mixed up: the letters are all in their proper positions from left to right, but most of them are in the wrong rows!

A fun, fast game with multiple skill levels...

Your only clue for unscrambling the words is that you are told the category each one belongs to. The first word might be the name of a flower, the second a musical instrument, and so on. Figuring out one word narrows the choice of letters available for those remaining, so each successive word gets easier to solve.

But it’s a race against time...

Alphen starts out easy then gets harder as the time limit goes down in later rounds. The game has two modes (regular and advanced), each with four skill levels. The easiest level is suitable for children of about 8-10 years; the hardest will challenge diehard word puzzle fans. A separate high-score list is kept for each combination of mode and skill level, so you can compete against yourself, your friends and your family as your skill develops.

  • Exciting! — Time-limited rounds test your skill and nerve
  • Educational! — Builds spelling and word visualization!
  • Non-violent! — No violence whatsoever
  • Stimulating! — Hours of absorbing play for ages 8-105
