App description: A Bunch of Fives is a new kind of word game with a simple goal, find the five words hidden in the puzzle.

Five, five letter words have been rearranged and carefully hidden. Find each word and trace its path with your finger. Find all five words without using hints and try to win all five stars.

The game starts off very easy with the five words already shown below the puzzle. As the levels get harder you will be shown fewer letters so you'll need to rely on your word knowledge to guess which words have been hidden.

If you get stuck you can always forfeit a star and reveal the word you are looking for.

Features
-Five difficulty levels
-Five word types
Random.
Words beginning with the same letter.
Words ending with the same letter.
Words beginning and ending with the same letter.
Words beginning with the same two letters.

-25 Levels in all, but every level has different words each time you play.

Can you win five stars on every level?

I have been trying this game out and finding it's a very nice word game and after getting into the more difficult modes it becomes challenging and you can replay them over. I especially like that its a relaxed mode or not a timed mode game. Very well done and like that little sound effect after finishing.
The game is definitely worth a look and being free at this time makes it possible. Nice job dev.

Later added: Wondering if the bottom ads will still be there once it becomes a paid game?

Thanks, it makes me happy to know you're enjoying the game.

The game was made to be a freebie with ads for my other games and Apple's iAds. I guess it would be possible to add an In-App-Purchase to remove the ads but I'm not sure how popular that would be and whether people would react negatively to it.
