App description: Wordium is a free-to-play asynchronous, turn-based word game where players take turns building the highest-scoring words using adjacent letter tiles.

As players score a word, the used letter tiles disappear and new ones drop onto the board, resulting in a constantly moving, always surprising gameplay experience! Players compete for 10 rounds: high score wins!

Featuring:

Power-ups You and your opponent each receive 3 random power-ups at the outset of each game. Use Power-ups to change the board and build higher-scoring words. You can earn or buy more with Wordium Coins.

Hints Stuck? Each press of the Hint Button reveals the first letters of a high-scoring word on the board. You can earn or purchase more Hints at any time.

Facebook and Twitter Integration Wordium is a game for friends, and weve made it easy to invite your Twitter followers and Facebook friends. You can easily see which friends are already playing Wordium and start up a game.

Dictionary Youve constructed a mega-word or scraped by with a two-letter lifesaver, but arent QUITE sure what that word means. With a tap, Wordium Dictionary delivers the definition--and its a snap to share especially interesting words with your social networks.

In-Game Chat Talk with your opponent straight from the game board. Its a great place to try out all the new words youre learning!

Statistics and Leaderboard Tap your opponents name to check out their stats, like longest and highest-scoring words. Find your own detailed stats on the Main Menu, including a chart that tracks your overall ranking. The Wordium Leaderboard reveals the best players around the globe.

Hey guys,

We wanted to let you know that we’ve been hard at work the last few months putting the polish on our first mobile game, WORDIUM. It’s a free-to-play, cross platform, asynchronous word game for iOS and Android devices!

Wordium adds some twists to typical back-and-forth word games as it encourages players to use Power-ups to shake up the board when finding the best word. We’re really hoping to appeal to both casual and hardcore word game players.

Went to add try the game last night but stopped when it was asking for permission to my faceboook friends emails. I hate when a game is asking for a lot more then they really need and as a principle stop as soon as I see that.

I may give it a go later using an email sign in, but I tend to not trust games that are asking for more than what they need for me to play their game.

Hey! Thanks for taking an interest in Wordium and the time to post your thoughts.

With your permission, Wordium populates your in-game Friends List with your Facebook friends to make it easier to find and play with themthats the only use it makes of them.

Like you, we take privacy seriously, and frown upon general nosiness, so rest assured that we don't ask for the email addresses of your Facebook friends, nor do we gather their personal information!

If youre still hesitant, Wordium is completely playable without using Facebook. If you set up a Wordium account, you can find your friends by searching for their usernames or email addresses--if theyve provided one in New User registration. Thats not required either. The only time Wordium stores any email address is for password-resetting purposes.

If you cant find who youre looking for you can invite them to play via email, SMS, or Twitter.

Heres our privacy policy, which outlines exactly what information we collect and how we use it:

Thanks for giving us the chance to address your concerns. If you have any other questions, please let us know!
