7 Little Words is a simple, minimal puzzle game that's perfect for fans of crosswords, anagrams, word searches, and other word-based games. The first 30 puzzles are free. After that, you can purchase extra puzzles in packs of 50 for 99 cents from the Android Market.

The gameplay is simple. Guess the seven words. To help you, you get seven clues, the number of letters in each word, and a reservoir of letter combinations from which to construct your guesses. Since there is no time limit or penalty for guessing wrong, you pretty much just play until you win (or give up).

We found 7 Little Words to be a curiously relaxing game. It's challenging, yet soothing, likely because there's no time limit. The only thing we found disappointing was that it came with only 30 puzzles to start. Regardless, if you fancy yourself a wordsmith, and you're looking for a simple puzzler to pass the time, we think 7 Little Words is a great choice.
