Aw darn I love these types of games. I just wish it wasn't iPad only. I guess they think the screen isn't big enough?

I downloaded this. It sure looks nice. Right now, I am waiting for the game to find an "auto-match" opponent for me.

Edit: I am in a game now and enjoying myself. Of course this is similar to Words with Friends, but with a lovely theme and a few twists.

I hope this game catches on and gathers a nice community. If it does, I will be happy to buy some of the (very optional) IAP. Feel free to request me as a Game Center friend (mention TA or this game) and challenge me.

Great game as far as I can see. Words with friends in a fantasy theme and several interesting power ups. Gorgeous graphics and light music.

I'm one of the two guys that made this game and I'm glad you guys like it!

@L.Lawliet: We are hard at work on an iPhone version as we speak. The game runs great on the phone, just need to change some of the UI elements to better fit the smaller screen.

I have played a few games and I still have not figured out how to play the talents. Can someone explain this?

Tap the talent you want to cast then hit the confirm button (the button that glows blue) on the bottom right.

Some talents have cases where you need to specify a spot on the board (Meteor, Ice Block, etc) but most talents are cast just by selecting it and hitting the confirm.

I'm excited to play the game, but it won't get past the title screen on my iPad Mini (it shows the title screen and plays music, but doesn't go any further). Any chance it has issues with the Mini? I can't find a place to post questions on the maker's website.
