in Education (E)

[] Sacramento, California - Word lovers will rejoice! Experience this highly innovative, 3 dimensional, mind sharpening, and vocabulary enriching iOS App today. Andrew Kiger today is proud to announce the release of Word Head (3D Word Search) - Educational for iOS, the 'Rubik's Cube' of word search. It's as if Word Search and 'Boggle' had a baby and made it in 3-D they'd call it 'Word Head.' Now available through the iTune Educational Volume Purchase Program.

"I wanted an educational app that both children and adults could enjoy and learn from, that provided lasting value, and that would help stimulate and improve their minds," says Andy Kiger, the developer. "There's nothing like it in the App Store, so I decided to create it myself."

Players manipulate a 3-D cube floating in mid air looking for words that can wrap and twist around the sides of the cube. Move the cube up, down, 180 degrees to the left, 90 degrees to the right, there's nothing like it. Word Head is highly addictive because its rotating 3 dimensional cube challenges players to quickly discover words from either a pre-selected or player-customized list.

Find the word, score points. Once you find them all there's one more hurdle to clear; you must discover a special 'hidden' word to solve the cube.

Word Head (3D Word Search) - Educational was developed by retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Andy Kiger who served in Alaska and CONUS, to include an operational deployment in the Philippines and two combat tours in Iraq during his 23 years of active duty. Says Kiger, "I've been a big fan of word games my entire life and thought the iOS platform offered a great way to revolutionize the word search genre into something much more compelling and exciting than the traditional flat paged puzzle."

Kiger personally created the 79 themed word lists to be "both challenging and vocabulary enriching." Word Head dares players to search for and discover select words. Players can also select their own custom word list from a provided word look-up in four languages - French, German, Spanish, and English totaling over 1.6 million words, which can be shared with friends on Apple's Game Center. Many word definitions are also provided through Apple's internal iOS dictionary for all four languages.
