If you think you've got a pretty decent vocabulary and a good grasp on spelling then we've got a challenge for you.

This game can be played on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and features an easy-to-understand game board where you will be working to twist, crush, flip, and spell words that will fit in. This game is ideal for the casual gamer and for someone who has more time on their hands.

Immersive and Challenging Gameplay

It's amazing that a simple game where you are spelling words and filling in a game board with letters can be so fun, addictive, and of course, challenging. That's exactly what you get here. The entire app has a very casual vibe about it and has a simple user interface that actually works to its advantage. As you work on these words you'll want to reuse the letters as much as possible so you can earn all three of the stars. Don't worry, there is no shortage of levels as there are 100 of them to play.

Even though this one is a brand-new app it already has a perfect five out of five star customer rating and it has a number of positive comments from players. Customers are loving how easy it is to play and that it combines a number of great puzzle-based elements into one.

Playing the Game

The game board is 8x7 and you are allowed to spell in any and all directions. As mentioned the board is very simple but that makes it easy and straightforward to read. The app supports Game Center so you can certainly see how well you’re doing stacked up against other players. You will need to complete a set amount of levels in order to unlock more and the app also supports achievements. I love that you start with the “Baby Steps” levels; it seems perfect for a brand new gamer just starting out. There is also a quick tutorial to walk you through the basics.

Be prepared for some rather simple levels to begin with, but don’t get over-confident because you will soon find out the levels increase in difficulty as you move through them. Before you know it you’ll be feeling puzzled.
