App description: Tilt the board and connect blocks in this simple-yet-challenging strategic word game. Play by yourself or against friends.

Your game begins on a board filled with letters. Spell words by connecting adjacent blocks. By tapping the paddles, you can control where the blocks go. Your round ends when you have cleared the board.

- Five unique play modes
- Head-to-head multiplayer (with optional push notifications)
- Five different game boards
- Achievements & leaderboards
- Five custom color themes and ten background patterns

A perfect companion for when you have a few minutes to spare. A single round mode with no extra commitments.

*Head to Head*
Play against your friends in this best of three rounds competitive mode. Each round, you play an identical board of letters and compete for the high score.

A three round mode with cut scenes and badges. Lock in a target score, then try to top it two more times. Watch out for count up blocks! A difficult challenge for experts only.

A single round mode where you can re-fill the board by collecting plus blocks. Continue playing until you run out of blocks.

Shoot for a target score by collecting words on this nine hole course. Watch out though, each word counts for a stroke.

Hey guys, this is the first game I've released. I put a lot of effort into the ruleset. In particular, you can earn a geometrically progressing end-of-round bonus multiplier for spelling long words. Also, letters are worth different amounts (based on Scrabble scoring). These can be doubled or tripled by collecting one or two double blocks. There are also count blocks which lose a point each time they are moved.

Also, I think the physics interactions are pleasant to look at:

It's ad-supported, with a single IAP that gets you two additional play modes, custom themes, and ad removal.

Anyway, check it out and let me know what you think.

Version 1.2 (new mode!)

I just updated the app with a new mode: Threefold. To win, you must lock in a target score, then try to beat it two more times. There are some hand-crafted cutscenes & game over scenes:

There are also badges, new Achievements and leaderboards. Hope you all like it!

Dunno how I missed this at launch. I played this for a few minutes and gladly paid for the full game. Really cool game mechanics, most of which I've seen in other games (whose names I can't immediately recall), but Moving Type artfully combines the best elements of these games and bundles them into a nice, challenging package. And...there are no silly timers 😎

Thanks for the purchase and the kind words. Yes, timers are pretty lame IMO :P. The mechanics were designed to emphasize strategic thinking, not quick fingers. I'm curious how high a score people can get; the points get a little bonkers with really long words.
