DICTO™ - A word puzzle game

UPDATE: OUR GAME IS RELEASED ON THE APPSTORE
http://itunes.apple.com/app/dicto-word-puzzle-game/id475675509

DICTO™ is a word puzzle game where the main objective is to create up to seven letter words in the shortest amount of time. Simply put: create long words as fast as possible and get the highest possible score.

Teaser video update:


The game include bonus rounds and tactical challenges.

The gap between failure and success lean on a few simple actions. One method to achieve a high score is by saving high valued letters to the HOLD slots until a bonus round. Since the bonus round triples your score, the use of high valued letters when creating word can accumulate a large score. However there is a catch: if you are not able to use these letters during a bonus round they will be lost as the HOLD slots will be reset when the bonus round ends.

DICTO™ also includes:
  • 9 dictionaries in 8 languages (Including Int. English, US English, Norwegian (Bokmål), Norwegian (Nynorsk), Swedish, Nederlands, Deutsch, Italian and Français)
  • 10 or 25 round games and a Survival challenge.
  • Bonus rounds
  • Simple game statistics
  • 12 different achievements with more to come
  • Twitter and Facebook integration
  • A locked bonus game: «Guess the Word»

The game design looks very nice. I'm a pretty big fan of word games and this one looks good. I'm really just trying to feel out the gameplay based on the description and pictures.

Correct me if I'm wrong!!!

I really like the fact that you can switch the dictionaries. I live in the USA and speak US English, but I will definitely be trying to spell words in other dictionaries; especially the English one!

It would be awesome if you added Spanish and Japanese characters!!! Those are the two languages I'm, personally, familiar with after English.

GoofyJmaster: Yes you can switch dictionaries. We will work hard to support as many languages as possible, and at least spanish is an important one
We will soon release some videos showing some actual gameplay.
