Keen observation! Yes, there are "hidden" modifiers when evaluating the word scores at the end of each round.

One is how many words you got in the round. The more words you have, the higher score each of them would be evaluated.

The other is the current level of the game. The higher level you are playing, the higher score you would get from finishing every word.

The number in the brackets after each word is the "base score", without any modifier applied.

Everyone should download this while it is free. Enjoying it, always thinking I could be more intelligent with dropping of letters.

I do think that the frequency of the blue blocks (z and x) are too high.

Ditto. I'm a word game junkie. I always keep Spelltower, W.E.L.D.E.R., Puzzlejuice, Quarrel Deluxe, and Befuddled installed on my device. But I'm not upgrading to 6.0 on my 4S. I'll end up with 6.0 or higher when I upgrade; but that won't be for another year.

Default Game Impressions

Thank you very much, w162! SEVEN˛ is an absolutely great game!

Although English is not my first language I could make some Game Center highscores (okay—in the early hours of Seven Square). Maybe you could add other language's dictionaries?! Thanks in advance!

Here you have my example how important the strategic factor of swiping the top line is. I figured that out a bit late but it's a really great addition!



Don't take PALE too early. Swipe the top line. If you're lucky enough you get the appropriate letter(s) for the next turn.



Now I've got a rather long premium word. And as a free gift: HILA.

I love the name of the game with the special character but it's hard to find p. e. in AppShopper (I had to look up the dev's name Premiere Liaison, cool name as well btw). This the original AppShopper link:

http://appshopper.com/games/seven˛-m...stic-word-game

Precious hint for word game developers: There are only a few really good word games (maybe two or three) in the whole iOS App Store in other languages than English. Take the chance and implement other dictionaries.

Habakuk (and anyone else who wants to search the store for this game): it shows up if you search for Seven 2. I agree though...the dev might want to consider changing the name, so that people know what to search for, and also so it appears in searches for related games.

A couple more notes for the developer:

The same Game Center achievements repeat each time I start and play the game.

It would be nice of the app would auto-rotate based on the vertical orientation of the iPad.

Edit: I am on top of the leader boards folks: 4570 points! I am guessing it will be short lived. ;-)

Sorry. In Austrian App Store and AppShopper.com it doesn't show up when I put in the search field…

I knew my dominance over our resident KING OF THE WORD GAMES couldn't last long!

LordGek, I really like Seven 2, but I have been focused on my current word game obsession, which is QatQi. However, I was playing Seven 2 because of your Game Center challenge. Therefor all the credit belongs to you! Thanks!

Has anyone else noticed the has been a deluge of really outstanding word games released lately? I can think of at least 4 or 5 off the top of my head, Seven 2 being one of them. Since I adore word games, it has been really fun.
