App description: PatchWord revolutionizes word games. Stitch randomly generated letters together to make words and turn your PatchWord board into a single color. Longer words score more points, seven+ letter words score bonus points. Choose carefully though, each word can only be used once per game. Challenge Facebook friends to beat your score playing the exact same game, or accept challenges from them.

Free to play and offering freeform word play with no levels or pay-to-win options, PatchWord is a challenging, skillful and totally fair way to determine who is the biggest Word Nerd!


HOW TO PLAY
Use letters of the same color from anywhere on the board. No need for them to be next to each other.
The central letter starts each board as neutral and can be used in words of either color.
The tiles used in a valid word will change to the other color.
Change the tile colors multiple times as needed by using them in different words.
Turn the entire board one color to score bonus points and a new board to continue playing.


NOTES
Enjoy the game on Phones and Tablets
PatchWord contains banner ads and interstitial ads.
PatchWord is free to play, but you can purchase In-app items to remove some or all ads.

Lovin This!

Its been a while since I played a word game that brought something new to the table, and its fun! This is a keeper for sure.
Just one thing, how do I get rid of the banner ads?
In the description it says, PatchWord is free to play, but you can purchase In-app items to remove some or all ads, but I see no button or menu item for that. Is it simply hidden in plain sight and Im just not seein it?!

How to Remove the Ads

Hi,
Glad you are enjoying the game. To remove ads, click Store from the main menu, then click the text for what you want to remove. You can remove all ads, just the banner ads, or just the pop-up ads.

Sorry it is confusing, the next update due the end of January will put highlighters over them to make them look more like buttons. That update will also include a new game mode & possibly a global leaderboard. In the meantime, if you are interested, there is a facebook group called PatchWord Game where people can share challenges for other players to beat.

Make sure to challenge your friends & family!

Regards,
The Yeti Team

Still Playing!

Thanks for the reply, but Im still playing my FIRST game, so have not had an opportunity to see the main screen and IAP menu!
Am playing my 18th board with a current score of 4051, but will no doubt reach my limit soon - still enjoying this and loving the new board feature that enables such extended play!

Have a Merry Christmas, guys!

Awesome, glad you like that feature. It really feels like an achievement when it happens, especially in the turn based mode (current known record on turn based is 26 boards). We even have one player that tries to get every letter on a board to be gold (by using it in a 7+ letter word) before clearing the board.

Merry Xmas to you as well

Will this be updated for iPhone X? I really like it but a lot of the menus are obscured and awkward to reach.

iPhone X screen sizing issue

Hi gaymerX,

Sorry this has taken so long but we believe we have a solution for this issue. From the options menu in settings from the main menu or from the options menu in-game there is a Game Size slider that will let you decrease the scaling of the game window. The game will save this setting locally. We are hoping to have this released soon but if you are interested we can set you up as a tester so you can check it out on your device. This new version will also have achievements & a global leaderboard (requires facebook login but we don't collect or access any data, we just link a unique id to your facebook id).

If this interests you please respond & I will send you a Test Flight invitation to the email account that you used to send us the screenshots previously.

Thanks, & again I'm sorry this has taken so long to resolve.

Hi GaymerX,

The latest update has just hit the app stores. As well as introducing global leaderboards there is the ability, in the options menu, to scale the screen image so that parts of some buttons etc are no longer off the screen. It can also be adjusted while in game by hitting Pause, then Options. This will be saved in your settings so that it is remembered each time you play the game.

Sorry it took so long to resolve.
