Welcome to Steve's automatic Word-search puzzle generator.

Type a list of words into the box below. The program will try to fit all of them into a 16x16 grid of letters and fill in the blanks with random letters. The number of words that will fit varies a lot depending on what those words are - try it with about 30 words.

If you use the 'Easy' setting, the words will all run from left to right, top to bottom or diagonally left to right and either up or down. On the 'Hard' setting, words will run in all directions except directly backwards. Also, in 'Hard' mode, some of the gaps between the words are filled with parts of other words instead of random letters.

Type your words into the box below (NO PUNCTUATION PLEASE!), then click on the 'Submit' button:
