If you score the highest in a round you can choose two letters from the name of the current geographical location to complete your special four-letter word. This adds real tactics to choosing the next destination, particularly as you see other players progress with their word as they board the plane.
Wordhunters works well in larger families as you don’t need to buy expensive controllers for each player – you just use the devices you already have. The focus on word challenges makes it simple to understand, while the secret word you are collecting letters for makes the choice of countries tactical. Players can join and leave the game whenever they want. You can even play in a different language (French, Italian, German, Castilian Spanish or Latin American Spanish) to help build a foreign vocabulary.
Other games played with smartphones or tablets on PlayStation 4 in this way include the Frantics Mario Party style mini games, more general quiz game Knowledge is Power, detective game Hidden Agenda and That's You.
