Keeping You on Your Toes

This game will have you on the edge of your seat and on your toes at all times thanks to the fact that it doesn't follow the typical gameplay of word games. Although this one isn't a new release there still is no customer rating for it. Playing the game is free but if you want to get rid of the ads you'll need to do so with an in-app purchase.

As a new player you will start the game with WS$1,000 to help you out. From here you can earn more WS$ by using the bonus wheel, which can be done when you win games. This is the case of the more you play, and the more you win, the more WS$ you will have.

As mentioned the game using a spy theme throughout and there are Special Operations you will need to perform. These Special Operations require WS$, so again you'll want to earn as many as possible.

Playing the Game

As mentioned you are in for a unique gaming experience here. The board is set up to look like that of Scrabble and you are given tiles with letters on them. You need to form high-scoring words with these tiles and place them on the board. Just like with Scrabble there are spaces on the board that offer additional points so you will want to try to use them to your advantage.

Now here's where the spy angle comes in: you can spy on the tiles your competitor has, you can switch a tile with your opponent, you can shuffle the multipliers on the game board to put a kink in people's plans, there is a sabotage move that lets you take away half of the score of your opponent, and so much more.
