Mystery Word Town – Artgig Apps

Mystery Word Town – Artgig Apps

Mystery Word Town by Artgig Apps is the latest addition to their suite of ‘mystery’ apps which includes Mystery Math Town and Mystery Math Museum.  These apps are among some of my favorites but more importantly, the kiddos love them.

The latest update to Mystery Word Town has brought the ability to make customized word lists!  Yes, that’s right…you can add weekly spelling lists, vocabulary words and let’s think out of the box for a minute (speech articulation words, category vocabulary).


The holidays are coming up quickly, how about words for favorite holiday items (Christmas, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah). Practice those family member names too, so that when it’s time to write thank you notes those names will be spelled correctly!

Mystery Word Town takes you through an Old West scene….reminds me of Old Town Sacramento and the Gold Rush times which is right in my backyard here in Northern California!


So how do you play? Travel through the eleven areas within the town to gather letters to spell words.  Choose from levels one to three with built-in default lists based on high frequency and sight words with the options to Listen & Spell or Spell Your Own.  As mentioned above, the latest update allows the user to create a customized spelling list!  WOW, you’ll never run out of words to spell and have fun at the same time!  You can even record your voice saying the words that you add to your lists.
