Holy pound the buy button, Batman. Their previous game was excellent.

Yeah, Cvs.S and Spacebunnies were both fantastic... Purchasing this one even though I'm not really one for word games. =oD

Nice twist on the word-search theme embedded in a 3D block environment. After 30 minutes of gameplay, the fun and funky gaming mechanic married with a good heaping of eye-candy topped off with slick tracks make this a "winnah" so far.

(However, I encountered a crash on my non-jb iPad 2 (7 GB available) while going through the tutorial after launching the Chill Mode. After resetting my device all is now copacetic, but I'm posting here with the hopes of bringing this to the dev's attention because the AppStore app page support link only leads me to a product page listing their stable of games).

I picked this up yesterday actually, and yep, it's a very nice, polished word game. Pretty straight forward, and what you see is what you get.

Thanks for the kind words all (pun maybe intended?).

And sorry to hear about your crash ColeDaddy. We seem to have the ability to make even the simplest games hurt even the strongest devices. Although I'd be curious to know what OS version you're on...

I like this game, it's good. However, I could definitely do without the diva house vocals in the music - it's distracting, annoying, and just plain bad. Good thing there's an option to turn it off and play my own music. Otherwise great game.

Note to all word game devs: do not put vocals in your music.
