Game Impressions

Not much to say here; nice game and what you see is what you get. Just the one game mode is a little thin (more promised for what that's worth) but it's solid. Enjoyed it and can easily recommend to fans of word games/puzzlers.

I don't know what the show is that the producer who made the trailer oversees, but I want to see it now. That trailer was awesome.

As awesome as it was though, I'd be really interested in seeing more of the actual gameplay. I guess it seems a simple enough concept, but I'd like to know if you can move letters as far as you want, if there are score multipliers, etc.

Hey,
I put a bunch of gameplay videos up on our website www.weldergame.com last week under the TIPS section. They are also on YouTube.

You can definitely move around letters to form words in a variety of different ways, by using basic Swaps, Group Swaps (grabbing a group of letters and moving them), Reverse Swaps (reversing a selection of letters), or Jump Swaps (flying a letter anywhere). As you progress through a game you earn these different swaps, and you get more of them by scoring more points. Also there are 2x, 3x, and 4x multipliers as you progress through a game.

Enjoy! Shout out if you have any questions!
