App description: Following the success of LETRIS, we now present Roll-A-Word in which you can take part in exciting knock-out tournaments. It consists of 5 rounds in which 2 ships compete with each other and you have only 6 letters to combine and form words to make your ship move faster. Its simple but extremely addictive.

SPLIT SCREEN GAMES
If you have a friend, challenge him and you can both play at the same time in one device in a special tournament where the first to obtain 3 victories is the winner.

POWER-UPS
Before starting each round, choose which power you want to remain available during the race:
- Gold ball: one of the 6 balls is gold and every time you form a word with that letter your ship will be given an extra boost.
- Bomb: the rival ship will be hit by an explosion and not move forward until the fire is put out.
- Inspiration: the longest possible word will automatically be formed.

STRATEGIC FACTOR
It's not just about forming words: for each round you pass you will obtain coins which you must administer in order to improve your ship, sign up for more advanced tournaments and obtain extra powers. It is essential to know how to administer these coins and select the best tournament for each particular moment to continue progressing.

WITHOUT INTERNET ACCESS
You can play the entire game without the need for Internet access.

7 LANGUAGES
English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Catalan and Portuguese.

Power ups?

How do you use them? I don't see any directions. When I win tournament one I get 5 coins, if I replay tournament 1 I lose the 5 coins, tournament 2 cost 10 coins, how can I earn coins? Thanks for any info.

Thank you for another great 2-player-one-device word game.

Now if you could only make a Quarrel clone that plays 2 I'd be thrilled!

Hi,

Each tournament have different cost and different rewards.

TOURNAMENT 1:
Inscription: free
Round reward: 1 coin
Tournament reward: 5 coins
----------------------------
If you win the tournament 1 you will get 5x1 + 5 = 10 coins

TOURNAMENT 2:
Inscription: 10 coins
Round reward: 2 coin
Tournament reward: 30 coins
----------------------------
If you win the tournament 1 you will get 5x2 + 30 = 40 coins


You can see the tournament cost and the round / tournament reward in the tournament screen selector.

Roll-A-Word looks interesting; Ivanovich's tournament feature is great.
