Word Guesser is a simple 2-player Windows 8 game. Player 1 enters a word and player 2 tries to guess the word in as few attempts as possible. The only clues are that the word is between 2 other words in the dictionary. The boundary words are refined with each guess.

This looks like a fun game for children of elementary school age. I can see this game as a good one to hand to kids on a long car trip. It can help to teach both vocabulary (assuming you are providing challenging words) and the concept of a binary search algorithm.

Have you written a Windows 8 app or downloaded an app that you would like to see featured here? I will give preference to apps written in the US Central District after July 1.
