Accidentally released update, now it's #1 in top free word games!!!!

So I had an epic face palm moment yesterday.

Apple approved my update to Word Mess. While looking for pre-release promo codes I accidentally released the update to the store pretty much without telling anyone.
OOPS! Major. Marketing. Fail.

Also I am on vacation in India, so I figured, not much I can do but have chai and smile
(that is... after running around screaming for about 25 minutes)

24 hours later Word Mess is now #4 in top free word games and #2 in top free Educational Games.

*** EDIT ****
Since I posted this Word Mess has become the #1 Word Game on the iPad.

So there you go...
Word Mess, now updated(accidentally) with Challenges.
Play with your friends!

This has a lot of potential. I love working my way through the table only to find I have somehow missed 3 that were there all along. A very clever puzzle IMO

I was so ready to be mad with the rhymes round. I was incensed that I couldn't find them that I was going to come on here and rant about how different pronunciations rhyme differently with different accents.

Then the game revealed the words I missed and they totally rhymed, I just didn't see them. I consider pattern recognition one of my strong skills when it comes to games, yet I am still being caught out
