Default Word Ace: $0

Word Ace was finally approved for the iPhone! Woohoo!



Here's the press release:
-----
Redwood City, CA -- Self Aware Games™ (http://www.selfawaregames.com) is pleased to announce the release of Word Ace™, the first game that owners of the Pre, iPhone and iPod Touch can play together.

Word Ace combines the strategy and competition of Texas Hold ‘Em and the intellectual challenge of Scrabble®-like word creation into a fast-paced, challenging multiplayer online game you carry in your pocket. Do you have the cards and the skill to build the highest-scoring word, or are you going to have to bluff your way to victory?

Cross-Platform Online Multiplayer: Play with (or against) your friends online any time - whether they own a Pre, an iPhone, or an iPod Touch. Jump into a public game and compete against players across the globe, or set up a private table for you and your friends.
Infinitely Replayable Fun: Play Word Ace™ for a day, or play it for a year, and every time you pick it up, you’ll face a new challenge. Like any classic, Word Ace™ never gets old.
Friends List: Add people to your Friends List, and you can play online with them any time. Invite a friend to your game with a simple click, or hop into a game they're playing just as easily.
Unique picture-based emotes: Win with an incredible word? Show your opponents you're gloating. Smile or frown at your opponents with a simple click & drag.
In-game text chat: Drop your friends a quick message through Word Ace’s in-game chat system! Someone win with a lousy word? Let them know what they should have spelled instead.
Daily Chip Bonuses: Every day you play you earn a free chip bonus - so don’t let a day go by without a game of Word Ace™!

The best feature yet? All this is free. Play Word Ace™ online as much as you like, and it’ll cost you exactly nothing. Finally, iPhone players can get their hands on the game that's taken the Pre by storm!

It's not technically in the appstore yet. It has to be propagated out through all the itunes servers.

If it was approved though the dev should have their promo codes so it's only a matter of time before its available for purchase.

The fact that this game can be played online versus pre owners is great. I can't wait to give it a try!

Heh. Yeah, sorry - it'll take a little bit of time for it to show up in the store. But as soon as it propagates through Apple's servers, it should be good to go!

Is the game already available on the pre?

I only ask because it would be great to have an online user base ready to go when it's released for the iphone/ipod touch

It's been on the Pre for just over a week. There are already more than 60,000 players, who've played more than 290,000 games. There are players online 24 hours a day, every day.

I *cannot wait* for you guys to get your hands on it.
