To try all the puzzle types out in an actual demo game, click here.

This article will walk you through how each of them work, and how to set them up.


1) Fill-in-the-blanks


Select "Fill In The Blanks" task type, and set the accepted answer in the following format:

"The height of the Eiffel Tower is {324} meters tall and it was designed by the engineer {Gustav Eiffel | Eiffel}."


Adding the "|" between allows you to add multiple correct answers for individual blanks. This helps reduce players' frustration and anxiety.


2) Matching Pairs


Select "Matching Pairs" task type, and configure it as follows. You can either have both sides as image and text, both to be images or both to be texts.


3) Scrambled Phrase


Select "Scrambled Phrase" task type, and configure it as follows. The blocks are automatically created based on the empty spaces.


You can also use this to jumble up a word instead of a phrase - simply add spaces between a word.


4) Image Jigsaw

Select "Image Jigsaw" task type, and configure it as follows.


5) Word Search

Select "Word Search" task type, and configure it as follows. The list of words that appear above the word search can be configured to be shown or hidden.
