[VIDEO PREVIEW] MOXIE 2: Coming soon with 50% more Moxie! [Word Game]

The original Moxie is a unique and very popular word game for the iTouch platform. Development on Moxie 2 is now underway, full steam ahead!

Here's an Alpha version screenshot. I will be providing more details about the game in the upcoming days. Feel free to ask questions.

The skinny:

Moxie 2 is a unique cross between Solitaire, Scabble, and Upwords. You earn points by replacing letters to transform words into new words.

Can we have some clues on how this will differ.

Without that info it looks like more like a v1.5 really.

Can understand the need to release anew version financially though! Can we have a mode where you have no Moxie words please?

Hi uczmeg,

There are going to be quite a few differences in Moxie 2. Here are some of the major differences:
  • 6-letter words (instead of just 5)
  • new double-Moxie mode with twice as many letters
  • new "free play" mode to play endlessly
  • games will optionally start with "seed words"
  • landscape screen orientation
  • quick access to Moxe words screen
  • new screen to keep track of what letters have been used
  • much requested UNDO feature!
  • more moxie words
  • plus more

And yes, there will be an option to play without any Moxie words.

Thanks for asking and please help spread the word about Moxie 2!

Share and enjoy,

Moxie 2

I had contacted the developer about adding facebook integration. I don't see that listed here, but I hope it gets in. I'm sick and tired to see everyone's Farmville posts (on facebook), time for me to get even by annoying them with a bunch of Moxie posts!!

Here's a preliminary idea I'm considering for the icon. It looks pretty kewl on the actual device. What do you think?

Why not do a screenshot of your phone and show the icon on there?

As it stands I'm not 100% convinced by the cut-off look of the letters...

I agree that the logo is good, but looks a bit chopped off on the side
