“Essential - The Best Word Search Games for iPad AppGuide” Highest Rating ~

“5 Stars – Essential – A Must-have for Fans of Word Games” ~

“8/10 – It is a fun and intelligent game which is perfect for anyone looking for a brain teasing, pickup-up-and-play experience. I highly recommend it.” ~

Back & Forth is unlike any word game you have ever played. Highly addictive, remarkably innovative this is an entirely a new twist on the word games!

Use the power of gravity, in every direction to dynamically change your board as you spell words forward, backward, vertically, horizontally & diagonally. With a simple twist of your device, gravity pulls on the tiles and drops them in new patterns.

Rearrange your tiles further through the signature “Back & Forth” move where one simple swipe forces two tiles to swap places.

Simple? Yes.
Challenging? Absolutely!

Play as an individual to hone your skills

Or play the 3 Minute Daily Challenge to refine your lightning quick reflexes

And then play against an opponent to show them how much words can hurt!

Back & Forth features:
» Completely new word game design concept
» Tiles respond to rotation of the board falling and forming new words
» Back & Forth motion to swap tiles
» Single Player mode offers 24 uniquely hand crafted puzzles!
» Daily Blitz offers a new challenge every day where you have just 3 minutes to post your best score online against the world!
» Daily Breeze offers a new challenge every day without the 3 minute pressure cooker, but still play against the world!
» Two Multiplayer Modes offer friends or other game center players an exciting twist where a shared board is wiped out by both players at once!
» 21 Game Center Achievements!
» 24 Game Center Leaderboards!
» Beautiful custom music and sounds effects by Dren McDonald!
» iPhone 4 High Resolution (retina) Graphics
» New iPad Enhanced Graphics
» Unique iPAD interface, but still the same great game play, all in one package!

New iPad Owners or anyone who upgraded to iOS5.1
When you first run the game, if the tiles do not rotate when you rotate the device, please shut down the iPad and restart (hold the button at the top until you see "Slide to Power Off"). This should only need to be done once and will fix this and several other apps.
