IsoWords

IsoWords is a word search game wrapped onto a cube. Connect adjacent letters to form words (same old story), but the third time a letter is used its cube will be removed. This presents a novel finiteness to the word search genre.

Features include:

- Play for 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 minutes, or free play until the cube is completely gone.
- Internal high score engine and statistics record lots of interesting information about your games.
- Challenge a friend to beat your scores (of any game ever played, past or present) on Facebook, Twitter or through email.

I'm not posting a video yet, but probably in the next few days.

*UPDATE* I now have a video:

I am also knee deep in the next iteration of this game, which will include Bluetooth multiplayer (with a variety of game types, ranging from vanilla "play at the same time and compare words after", to an intense all out battle for words), dictionaries for other languages + localizations, among other things.

I removed these screenshots because they were old... newer ones below...

I am the sole developer of this app, operating under my company Opetopic (pronounced ope-uh-tope-ick). If you want to follow IsoWords' progress, follow me on twitter @opetopic or visit my site www.opetopic.com, www.opetopic.com/isowords (bare bones right now).

Thanks for reading.

Looks like the sort of game I'm after. Bookworm simply looks too childish to me so this could easily be the solution

If you want to embed the video in your original post:

I haven't embedded it myself cause you seem to have the video on private so you'll have to fix that first

Hey, glad to hear that someone is interested in it ... developing this game has consumed my life a bit.

I took down the above video because I added new artwork. However, here is a trailer of the game (this vid _is_ marked as private b/c I am still working on it, but it is embeddable):

I also have a new gameplay vid, but youtube doesn't seem to be working for me now. I will upload it in a little while.

Also, here are some screenshots of the *final* artwork. I should be submitting this game to the app store in a few days.



I also have the app fully localized in Spanish, French and German, and 7 more languages nearly done ... so, hopefully it is a game almost everyone can enjoy.

This should give a sense of almost everything you can do in the game.
