Sure, it has ads in it but you won't notice them because you'll be so addicted to the game

*Note: I am the developer of this game. My game 'Wordular' launched a while ago as a 99c game, but it is now being re-published under the new name 'wordSphere' for some reasons that are too boring to talk about here. Just download it and enjoy it

O.k., I'll download it!

But I always thought that ads actually ARE for noticing?



Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

You need'nt. You're already making millions with the advertisements...


O.k., grrrls and guys - this game is ad-supported.
But as far as I can see, the ads aren't so noticeable, I can easily live with them.

First impressions: I like this game, it is a nice time waster.
The controls are easy to handle and the game is quite challenging - you have to think quick. In its style it reminds me of Textropolis. You have a given set of letters and you have to make different words out of them.
Download and try it.

Looks identical to Ethervision's Wordular which isn't available any more. Is it the same?

He said that was his game and was republished as WordSphere.

Wonder if it has a timeless mode. Downloading to see.
If not any chance of getting one put in?
Might get a lot more customers that way.
There are a few casual players around that would probably get it if so.

Cool, I failed to read that. No wonder why it's gone bye bye.

Ok, played. Although not a fan of timed modes the game was fun. Liked how the letters revolved around but at a leisurely pace. Might ramp up later and if not I suggest it for being a timed mode game to give it even more of a challenge for the more hardcore. (if it's going to be a timed games might as well suggest it).
The huge submit button was a plus for me when rushing to form words. Was kind of easy to start and this is still a somewhat early impression but covers the basics.

I also like how once you completed a level you weren't thrown into the next one right away but could tap the start button to continue on. Good for people who like to "compose" themselves before starting another level.
(some people like that)

Do have a small gripe as when I finished the level then I'm required to stare at my screen till the timer has expired. Little of a dead spot there while playing.

Timer is well balance and words depend on how good you are to make longer ones or can simply grab smaller 3 character ones. Not sure but think 3 would be the limit as in most word games. But a nice word game for hardcore or casual so covers both types of gamers.

Noticed my name at the top of the scoreboard after only one play. Good ego booster! And at the end of each level it gives the hidden word that was or could have been found. Cool sounds and a very complete tutorial as well.

I like it (even if timed) and keeping it on my device. Never played the other referred to as Wordular so this is a first time impression of the game for me.

And the ads aren't obtrusive and didn't detract from the game play in any way. But there for the looking or tapping if interested. The game description has other info I've not mentioned.
A very nice game and would recommend it to all word players.
