Heh, same here. It's available on PC at various outlets though I'm waiting for it to exit Greenlight and then I'll snap it up. A friend's played it on PC and really enjoyed it so my hopes are up. Will most likely buy it on iOS first though, can't resist word games, pixelated visuals or RPGs so this being all three is a definite purchase!

I have played it for a half hour so far and I like it. I am still within my first game. The pixel graphics are nice.

Some of the RPGS elements seem to be handled a bit clumsily. For instance, you can buy equipment and the display shows you what stats you will get from each item but it does not make it clear whether this is upgrading existing equipment for an increase in stats or if you will lose stats from replacing equipment of the same type. I would like to be able to see more detailed stats for my party and the enemies.

Another minor quibble is that the health bars seems a bit tiny and hard to see.

There is a nice variety of word challenges here. There also seems to be a variety of monsters and game areas. Overall, the game seems very minimalist but interesting so far.

Looks very much like book worm on PC. Wonder how it feels like. Some opinions please!

Seems like an Instabuy to me. No IAP, fun twist on word games, and I get to fight an evil chicken ? C'mon !!! Will be playing this tonight with my wife, for sure !

Good luck to the devs...

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...
IAPs = I Ain't Purchasing, son !
