Wordspector investigations now under way!

Word game fans rejoice! Wordspector, the fun and feature-packed word puzzler from Moido Games is now available on the App store.

The objective is to solve "mystery words" with the help of colour clues. It's a bit like mastermind with words (check the video for wordspecting 101). But that's just the main game; there are also three mini-games each with different rules.

All game modes have online leaderboards with Facebook integration and can be played in English, Spanish, French, Italian and Finnish. I'd love to get feedback especially from non-English players!

Looks like a good word game with arcade sensibilities. Good stuff.

I am having a lot of fun with this game as it is different from the other word games I have. Works well on the iPad as well.

+1 - Very polished, it scales well, and it's fun.

Different how?

Also, are the leaderboards through Facebook or standalone?

Thanks.

I bought on your rec, so thank you. Way more interesting than Mastermind, IMO.

There are global leaderboards that you can access in game. It is just a different type of word game, with excellent controls and addictive game play.

By different, you are given one letter of a four letter word and must figure out the word. The quicker you do this, the more points you score and then you move on to the next round. Eventually, you don't get any letters revealed and the words get longer.

To aid you, when you place a letter if it turns green it it in the correct spot. If it turns brown it is a correct letter but in the wrong spot. If the letter you placed is wrong, it will not be highlighted and will dim in the letterselection screen.

Sorry for the short explaination but it is late. I highly recommend this if you like word games.
