Scroodles! A Word Adventure Game (Beta Test Invites Inside!)

Introducing Scroodles, a word-adventure game now in beta. We're LOOKING FOR BETA TESTERS!!!


Youtube link | Pop Up


Scroodles combines simple word creation with a strategic battle system reminiscent of old school role-playing games. I came up with the idea for Scroodles after finding current single-player word games either overly complex or lacking depth.

I decided I couldn't be the only one who didn't enjoy trying to piece together ridiculous words using a wall of letters. In Scroodles you only have 8 letters, but the depth comes from how you use them and how you interact with the battle system.

You control “Pinkers,” an eraser on a quest to defeat a group of mischievous drawings known as the “Scroodles.” Pinkers spells words to battle up to three opposing Scroodles (who use the same letter tiles to fight back).

Words are used like weapons in Scroodles, with each letter dealing damage equal to its point value (less commonly used letters, like Q or Z, are worth more).

It’s sort of like Battle Scrabble. But with crazy characters and powers. So who wants to give it a try? I'll post a few links to download the beta (keep clicking if the previous link is taken). I'll keep posting more beta invites if people want them.



I really would love everyone's feedback! We're a 3-man indie team and this is our first game together (although we work in the game industry). Feel free to PM me or e-mail at madsallygames@gmail.com if you need a new link or for any other info.

Ever since you posted the trailers for your game a while back I've been interested in trying your game. I love word games and puzzles! Looking forward to beta testing this!

I've been playing for an hour and it's a really fun game. It's genius mixing turn based RPG elements with a word puzzler. It's a perfect mix wonderfully executed. I have not been close to hitting the timer.

I would love to see some deeper RPG elements added like casting magic or upgrading spells.

It really is a fun game, the battle elements make it so much more than a regular word game which is nice and keeps me playing longer

I took the link that is last in the list.
Previously, you mentioned you wanted someone to test regarding the monetary side especially if they normally stayed away from specific iap's in games. I am sorry I did not come back and respond or offer to try it. I wasn't feeling very well at the time. So now, I am going to give it an honest effort. After all, I know the game is going to be great!
