Spelldom - town building strategy word game

Hi Everyone!

I’m part of the two-man indie game studio, HangZone, and our upcoming game, Spelldom, is currently in beta. We have spent almost two years making this game, our third title, and we would love for you to take a look at it!

Spelldom offers a never-before-seen take on the strategy game genre. And on the word game genre! We’ve crafted a rich town management experience, where you can build-up your defenses and strategically position them to defend your Castle. You won’t be defending against the usual sort of barbarians that love to disrupt virtual civilizations. No, these are the Dark Elves we’re talking about. They attack with words--Magical words. They’ll enter through your town’s Portal, spelling words around and over your defenses in an attempt to crush your Castle. All those word games you’ve played over the years were just to get you ready for this. Get revenge on the Dark Elves, form powerful teams with your friends, and battle against the top players from around the world!



Let me break that down:
You attack by spelling words, not by deploying troops.
You start on the Portal, navigate the defenses, and crush your opponent’s Castle for the win!
You take home your loot, improve your own town, and celebrate the victory with your teammates!

We plan to launch as an App Store exclusive toward the end of the summer, with a soft launch in the coming month. Please feel free to post any thoughts or comments that you have!

Thank you! It crashes when I attempt to open it on my 5c. Is my phone too old?

The 5c should be fine--we have other users in the beta test on that device. There must be an issue with the new update. I'll send you an email to see if we can figure it out.

Hey guys, we cleaned-up the last update, so I took a break from the code to record some footage of the Daily Game mode. You won't find any defenses here--just an open town and a lot of gems!

Im not Canadian, but I do have a Canada account, and I am loving this game. It is a blast. I can't wait for world wide release. There are IAPs, but I have not needed them to play the game. And there is a lot of strategy involved. Well done!
