Wuzzles – Whats the Saying, Rebus Quiz & Catch Phrase Game (4.5/5 stars, currently free, high school and up)

Like Word Games? Think you’ve got what it takes to decipher Word Puzzles? Then get ready to be Wuzzled!

Each Wuzzle or rebus puzzle is a picture riddle that has a hidden meaning. The pic is a cryptogram that could mean a catch phrase, a common saying or a compound word.

Your mission is to think out of the box and guess what the wuzzle could mean. This charades style trivia game is based on the logic of the way the words are arranged. Wuzzles could be better compared to scrabble and charades. Challenge yourself to these mind-bending, brain teasing Wuzzles, test your IQ level and unleash the word genius in you!

10 amazing levels of word pun fun that will keep you hooked for hours and guess what? It’s absolutely FREE! Can’t figure out a tough Wuzzle? Take your pick from three helpful lifelines:

1. Remove a letter: Removes extra letters that are not in the answer

2. Reveal a letter: Reveals a letter from the answer

3. Reveal Answer: Use this when you just can’t figure out the answer – we hope you don’t have to but it’s there – just in case!

Still stuck? Don’t worry, you can ask your friends on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for help or get more random ideas for words by simply shuffling around the letters with the “Shuffle” feature.
