Wonderful game, which has only been polished and improved since I first played it. I wrote this in the upcoming thread while it was still in beta, and now I can't wait to take on the English-speaking world! I could spell antidisestablishmentarianism at age 9 . Do ya feel lucky, punk? . Remember, you don't even have to be a hoity-toity word junky to win at this. It's all about tactics!

Just wanted to stroll into this thread to inform y'all that this really is one of the better online multiplayer games out there once you learn the mechanics. If you're some kind of scrabble wizard, you may have a slight advantage, but even monosyllabic caveman have a chance to pip their loquacious opponents thanks to the ability to BALIFY! Balify, verb: to multiply your score by having only saved words and no wasted letters by the end of the game. I can verify this, as I was throwing out ten-dollar words like Oxymoronic (particularly proud of that one) and Rocketing to my opponent, and still the dastardly villain beat me because I didn't spend enough time thinking about balifying. This adds a whole new dimension to your typical scrabble game.

The game might have ended up like one of those excruciatingly drawn-out telephone/mail games of chess people would play back in the olden days if it weren't for the fact that you can play five games on the run. So while you're waiting for Peker from Finland and Bruce from Australia to make their moves, you can put in a few rounds with Howard who's online at the same time as you. There is an IAP to upgrade the number of games you can play on the fly from five to a hundred, and this, along with the coin doubler, are probably the two most essential upgrades, though neither are strictly necessary to enjoy the game. As to the coin system, there are a few special power-ups you can make use of during the game, like one which finds the most valuable word possible, or one which gives you a wild card letter. I only really found myself using them in a pinch, but the coins are copious enough that you won't end up running out unless you're using them every round. If so, a facebook or twitter share can replenish them soon enough.

Anyway, the game is fun, slick, upbeat, and free of the hectoring ugly vibe of most freemium games. I don't see why it shouldn't become a big success once it's out of soft launch. Give it a go when it's on wide release!

Thanks so much for your kind words sinagog!

We have as you say been polishing the game a lot since the beta version and added some new cool features.

We know the single player mode is not optimal, but we are working on that Everyone please keep in mind that the main purpose of the game is multiplayer mode, playing against another real person.

Cheers!

Just from my experience, it would be good to beef up the single player mode as much as possible for down the inevitable road where people just stop playing as much.
I've found that games like letterpress and the like are all great at first, but eventually years down the line people aren't available to play. So, unless you happen to have a lot of friends who still love the game....
I could be wrong, and this game is so good I am hoping this never happens but just in case...it's nice to jump into a single player game whenever you want, thank you very much again for adding it!

Thanks for your thoughts and kind words vectorarchitekt! I agree with you completely, we will keep working on the single player mode to make it as good as we possible can, even though the main focus is and always will be the multiplayer part.

Another awesome thing, we just got reviewed and featured on the front page of Pocket Gamer again!



A bit unfortunate that the reviewer based the the review mostly on the single player mode.... But still, not a bad review considering we are first and foremost a multiplayer game that should be enjoyed against another human.

Here's some quotes from it:

"If you're a fan of word-based digital entertainment especially there's an awful lot to enjoy"


"If you treat the single player campaign like a primer for the multiplayer, and don't get too upset when the AI drops some out-of-use Victorian term for the soles of shoes, then you're going to get on pretty well with BaliFied."
