Default SpellTower (A word game from creator of Halcyon, Bit Pilot, and Unify)






SpellTower is out today! Click the icon above for an appstore link to the game


Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up


www.spelltower.com

A Word Game that Does Your iPad Justice.
With its huge 10x15 tile grid, SpellTower has room for some serious word strategy.
Find and swipe words in 4 challenging modes. Finding words clears them from the screen, dropping any tiles above.

Make long words or use bonus tiles to clear extra letters from the screen!

Words + Strategy = Awesome
Pick your words wisely!

As you work, more tiles rise from the bottom of the screen, and it'll take all of your lexicological wits and tactical know-how to keep them down. If any of the letters make it to the top row, it's game over.

Four Amazing Modes

Tower Mode
No pressure here. Try and get the highest score possible out of 150 letters, eliminating small words to set up 7- and 8-letter blockbusters!

Puzzle Mode
Every word you make adds a new row of letters! Strategic word finding at its best.

Extreme Puzzle Mode
Like Puzzle mode, but with the minimum word length cranked up. Experts only!

Rush Mode
Rows of letters build up over time. Find words as fast as you can, but be careful you don't back yourself into a corner!

Game Center Integration
Show off how smart you are with online leaderboards for each mode and best word!

Even my Mom, who hasn't played a videogame since Tetris, is addicted to SpellTower.

I lost interest in Halcyon rather fast, never really got into Bit Pilot, but Unify has been enough for me to continue feeling like I'll buy whatever this dev releases sight unseen. At least thus far.

Default Impressions

This a great time to be releasing word games, and this one is very, very good. Clean, crisp graphics and interface, good variety of game modes, and core gameplay that simply works. Put simply: if you enjoy word games you want to add this one to your collection.

That's quite some pedigree, almost has me sold. I'm going to wait for a few more impressions before diving in.

Buy it...as has been said here Zach makes smart polished games worth both your time and your money. Why wait? Personally this game along with Electric Box 2.5 are easily enough to keep me entertained this week.

"Zach Gage" and "new app" was enough for me to click Buy.

That said, I'm not even a fan of word games and I'm already in love with Spell Tower. It's like Tetris with words packaged in a gorgeously clean design.
