In addition to this game, Word Connect also has a number of reading comprehension tests that test your vocabulary, reading skills, and reasoning skills. Once you complete the main game you'll be taken on a reading test to see how well you do in understanding and recognizing the kind of material being presented to you. On each level of the reading test the difficulty level increases. There are also quizzes to determine how well you grasp the concept and if you can really apply what you learned. The way that Word Connect keeps the levels consistent is by not only providing the regular questions for each level but also giving you hints along the way so that you don't get discouraged. The hints are used to keep you from becoming too frustrated and giving up just as soon as you get one.
The game gives you the option to continue playing for hours on end or switch out of the flash game portion to try solving puzzles found in the Word Connect - Word Search puzzles section. This section is where you'll find words hidden in all sorts of places and they won't reveal themselves unless you have the right skill set to uncover them. In this section you'll use a keyboard to move the cursor around the grid and find the words you need. You will also be challenged with different levels depending on how much you want to win. For example, on the high levels you'll be trying to uncover the most words and clear the board before time runs out.
