...palindromes... Walkthrough

Palindromes is one of the most unique and engrossing word games on the internet simply because it challenges you to think and respond quickly to the puzzles put in front of you. Part word game and part puzzle game, Palindromes is the perfect option for anyone looking for a good, word-based challenge to kill a little time with. It starts off easy but gets increasingly difficult with each level as you are confronted with longer words, and often times, words that aren't completely familiar to you. You have only limited time to get through each level and the points you have at the end of the level will carry forward as part of the time you will have to complete the next level. For that reason, the faster you can complete the puzzles the better, or you'll find yourself without enough time to tackle the palindromes in the next level.

Palindromes is really quite basic in every way which is perhaps why it is one of the most appealing word games online. There are no flashy graphics or involved story lines. There are no cute little characters to play with. Instead, you are simply presented with a series of increasingly difficult palindromes that have been jumbled and are waiting for you to put them back in the right order. To do this, all you need to do is figure out what order the lettered tiles should be in, point and click. Each palindrome has been separated into two letter sections. You move the tiles by swapping them with one another. For example; if you have four lettered tiles and need the first tile to be where the last tile is, you click on the first tile and the last tile and they will switch places. Do this as many times as you need to for each level. Remember, you only have a limited amount of time so you need to think and move quickly. It isn't always easy to do, especially as you progress in the game and the words get longer, but the creators of the game have been kind enough to provide you with definitions if you can't figure out the order of the words. If you're having trouble figuring out how to spell a word and the definition is no help, remember, a palindrome is a word that is spelled the same way forward and back. For instance, one of the puzzles put in front of you will say '(adv.) before; sooner than.' with the letters 'r' 'e' 'e'. Because this is a palindrome, you know the first letter and the last letter will have to be the same. Even if you've never heard the word 'ere', you know that is the only logical solution to the puzzle, so you will swap the 'r' with the first 'e', complete the puzzle and move on to the next level.

Overall, Palindromes is one of the most creative and interesting word games online. Newcomers to word games will have no problem making sense of the controls while experienced players will love the challenge it presents as the game gets harder. This is also a great game for helping increase your word power, thanks to the definitions provided. It also provides an excellent way to boost your performance in other word games as it familiarizes you with words you may not be aware of that you can then use in other games. With this word game, the fun is all in the challenge instead of flashy graphics and all of the other bells and whistles you get with many of the other games in this genre. The fact that you're learning while you play is just one more added benefit to an already incredible game.
