BenthicGames's comments:
Hello everyone! Our first game- 'Spellsquares: Cursed Moon' went live on the app store yesterday! It's a charming word puzzle adventure game that players have called "Seventh Guest meets Sudoku meets Scrabble."

Thanks for having a look and we hope you enjoy the game!

Took the second code, thanks.

Played through a couple of rooms and this game is super polished and very professional. The description of 7th Guest, scrabble and sudoku is pretty accurate, so if you are interested in those games, you will probably like this.

So far, gameplay consists of tapping on a lit object and then solving that word puzzle. Solving the word puzzle will allow you to progress, such as open a door ect. There are also things laying around that you can click on to collect as part of your quest. If you back out of the word puzzle it will save what you had done, or you can reset it to start again. I am playing on the easiest mode, there are two harder modes available at the start and it appears you get less help tiles and more empty squares the harder the difficulty. Also, there are four profile slots if you share an iPad.

Graphics, sounds and gameplay seem to be top notch.

Grabbed the 2nd from bottom - bottom was is used. Looked because I saw BT posted, and like his comments. I'll have to post later, because I have to run errands, but looking forward to trying this - I like word games.
