Quite surprised how addictive it is! Plus the fact I think I can smash the leaderboard. Will be trying all night now.

Edit - #2 on the 1:00 clock

Well worth the 69p it is at the moment
Thank you Mess! Glad you're enjoying it!

Good job on that score. I love the 1:00 clock mode. I'm adding a pretty tough achievement with unlockable theme for that mode in the next update, so keep practicing.

Alpha 9s are not too common in 1 minute games. Already pretty cool you got one!

Just bought this and played my first wall game and getting 44 words and I must say this game is quality, seems to play at a good pace. Well done on a great game and now going back for my second game and try and beat 44 words.

The one above wasnt actually in te 1 minute game, it was 'MENTALISM' in a ten minute game. but I have had one since in one minute 'RETREATED' but didn't manage to beat my best score!

One thig I have wondered is how the scoring is worked out. I am not sure of actually want to know the answer or not though

I got 48 first go, thought it would be easy to beat. Tried really hard and got 48 on the next go! I then tried the clock mode, and am preferring that! 1/3/10 minute(s) to score the most you can!

Awesome! 44 on your first game is actually much better than anyone who I've witnessed play their first game in real life.

And Mess, 48 is pretty impressive! Turns out the people on the Touch Arcade forum are good at games! Who would have thought?

Improved my 1 minute score. Can't get past 1800 though!

On the plus side knocked out the 'get 9 different Alpha9s' getting quite good at finding them in the 1 minute one!

I've been holding back from posting scores on Game Center since I may have somewhat of an unfair advantage but I have to admit 2600 is hard. I've lost my game save many times along the way but quickly going through my screenshots, the best I found is 2575. It's actually pretty nice to have your own score beaten as a developer.
