AlphaPit (sequel to multi-million times played Word Forward)

Hi guys!

I'm back! most recently made Starseed: Origin (4.5 TA Stars). That was fun!

Now I'm returning to my puzzle game home with AlphaPit.

I've made puzzlers before like Crobble (4.5 TA Stars), and Word Forward which wasn't reviewed on TA but was the number 1 word game worldwide and heavily featured by those Apple guys.

NOW it's about time for AlphaPit. It's a follow up to Word Forward and takes the Boggle-like gameplay but adds layers.... It's like Boggle/Word Forward but with layered boards. It's great and I've been addicted since I started coding.

Here's some screens (and a working GIF.. hopefully) and I'll pop a video in here as soon as I can find the time to make one.

Game is out June 9th for iPhone AND iPad and is Free.

Hey rad. I loved Starseed. I still play that game. Not the type of game I'll remove either. And this looks like another staple in my collection to be!

Do you plan on updating word forward again?
I always wished for a high score mode ☺️

Hey! Ah no I don't. It's quite old now... 3 years maybe... so I don't have the time with making new games and other work.
So glad you enjoyed it tho!

Man I am so ready for this.
I searched the store again for a decent word game besides spell tower and Lettercraft and maybe a handful of others, and it's all crap, or from 2011-2013.
Nothing like a quality word game from a trusted dev.
