Default LETZ - exploding puzzle action / word game - coming October 2012

Hi guys.
We are finally nearing release (December 11th 2012) of our new game, it's called LETZ: The story of Zed.

We describe it as: "Fun filled, exploding puzzle match-3 game for iPad 2 and newer (perfect for iPad mini!) where addictive, fast-paced gameplay is combined with gathering letters to create words, a funny storyline and tons of crazy characters."

See the new trailer here:

Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up

I hope you like it! Any kind of feedback is welcomed.
Thanks for support

Well, I'm a sucker for a match-3 with a twist, and fond of word games too, so this looks promising.
The blatant use of copyrighted characters is a problem, but they don't seem to be in the game as far as I can tell. Do yourselves a favor and remove all trace of them from your website immediately.

Looks fun and I'd swear, on some words that narrator almost sounds like John Cleese.

Definitely sounds familiar. I'm sure there's another game (or twelve) that used the same guy for a trailer, but I can't think of it.

Based on the trailer and the description on the Letz web site, this looks very interesting. I just hope this is not a freemium game.

If you like word & match-3 games, you will love this . There is an option for the word games lovers, it's an expert mode, where you have to create words manually by choosing proper letters. On the other hand, there is causal mode, where words are created automatically from letters you gather in your stack, so you can concentrate more on matching. Your call.

As for the blatant use of copyrighted characters. Thank you for your warning, but please, can you explain me, where exactly the problem is? I mean, we do only refer to some celebrities and characters (we use some kind of humorous pop cultural reference throughout the game), not using their names or even their original look nor mock them.

Well, good point, it should sounds like him . It's made by impressionist, who had to work with over 10 different well-known voices to dub our characters.

Isn't there some of parody protection? Especially since none are stated directly by name other than something always generic or a few letters off?
