Crap weasels, okay then, I'll grant you then that it is more complicated than I would have thought.

whoops, just re-posting this so it's not under the page fold.


Youtube link | Pop Up

here's an early video (about 2 days of work) of one of the multiplayer modes i'm working on.
This mode is local bluetooth multiplayer. (each of the iPads in the movie is being played by a different player)

It's based off of rush mode, and when you make words, it drops pieces on the other player. The grey blocks in the background are the other players letter heights. We played in my house for a few hours yesterday and it's definitely real fun to play. Kind of a nice to have a SpellTower mode that ends in just a few minutes actually

I'm working on other multiplayer modes as well for the update (including asynchronous over the internet modes)

-multiplayer via bluetooth
-new icon
-night colors (for playing in the dark)
-sound volume adjustment options
-tweet your best word
-consumes a lot less battery power
-extra polish
-bug fixes

Rush strategy tips

I am looking for tips to playing the Rush mode. I usually can get around 5800 with a high score of 7700. I would like to know what length words to look for.

Also, how exactly does the system decide to make the tiles harder, with a bunch of 6's? Is it time, or words played, or what? And once that happens, I only last a few turns, can people really play when there are so many 6's no the board?

Im pretty sure it doesnt take a short time to implement a new language in an app. Be patient.
