App description: Challenge your knowledge of the English language with this fun and addictive game! Featuring over 750 different word definitions and synonyms, Word Champion tests your skills in word and phrases definitions in a quiz-like format. Show off to your friends who didn't score well enough on the word section of their SATs!

How to play:

The game follows a quiz/trivia question format. It presents you with a question about either the definition of a word or phrase, or a synonym for them. Then it gives you four possible answers to select from. Each correct answer scores you a point. As you accumulate a certain number of points, you are awarded different ranks, from High School level all the way up to Word Champion. The more correct answers you score, you are given "Extra Bonus misses", which let you score more incorrect answers before the game is ended. The more incorrect answers you score, you lose more Extra bonus misses.

This is the ideal game while you are taking a break from playing those graphically intense 3d action games, or when you are training your crossword puzzle solving skills! And it's a great value!

This looks like a great concept but I am sorry you aren't off to a great start when there is a typo in the first screenshot (mesure=measure). Ironic for the type of game that it is!

Oops, sorry. Damn, thank you for pointing that out. I'll be making the correction ASAP. This game is mostly about definitions and phrases, it's not about a grammar and spelling bee aid though.

Edit. I uploaded a new screenshot and binaries with the fixes. But the changes don't seem to reflect on the Itunes page. Do changes take a while before reflecting on Itunes?

Edit 2. The changes are now in the Itunes store, but they dont seem to reflect here. Strange.

Well, after releasing an updated version with bug fixes, I settled for a pricing schedule which I think is interesting and balances a good bargain price with good profitability. I went for a weekly price variation. On weekdays, Monday thru Thursday, it will be $1.99. On weekends, Friday, Saturday and Sunday it'll be $0.99. I'll add free for one day special promotions too.

So, this weekend's here. Word Champion is at $0.99 now. And I'm looking into adding it online support, so that gamers can share their scores online. Get Word Champion now!
