SpellGrid - a strategic word building game [Free]

Hi everyone!

SpellGrid (universal, free) is now available for download from the Apple Appstore ; - )

SpellGrid = anagrams + crosswords

SpellGrid is a solitaire word building game with game play similar to the classic Scrabble game (but without unlucky drawing of tiles and pesky opponents).

A game of SpellGrid starts with a single word without any repeated letters. You then clone and rearrange letters to form words, joining them together in an ever growing grid.

Here is a short video of the game play (ipad):

Completed crosswords are saved to the cloud, so you can compare completions later (find out words you may have missed, or better placement strategies).

You can start a grid by hitting QuickPlay, or you can create your own - think of a word with no repeated letters, spell away and go! You can create 7, 8 or 9 letter grids (for 1, 2 and 3 minute games respectively).

SpellGrid is free!

Hi guys! A new update to SpellGrid has just gone live.

With version 2.0, Quick Play mode for 7, 8 and 9 letter grids, as well as the Zen Play mode, are now all unlocked for the free version!

Also, Zen Play mode has been re-organized - there are now 490 grids to be solved, 70 grids for each day of the week. There is a separate leaderboard for each day, so keep playing!

P/S: By the way, due to the shutdown of StackMob, we have had to migrate to Parse for cloud saving. Once you install version 2, the game will attempt to sync and reinstate your progress. This migration is for Game Center achievements only - I don't want you to start over for those progressive achievements!
