WordPile is a fresh new take on word games. A fast, fun word finding game everyone can play!

WordPile combines elements from great word puzzle games like word finds and crosswords with the strategy of chess and brick dropping games into a challenging word search mash-up. It will push your spelling and vocabulary skills to their limits and reward you for tactically planning ahead your next moves.

If you enjoy word finds, crossword puzzles, and anagram games, you're going to love Word Pile. It will satisfy you gaming needs whether your looking for a relaxing lexical distraction or a fast paced vocabulary challenge.

Featuring 5 intuitive, yet challenging game modes:

Clear - Create as many words as you can starting from a full board of letters.

Zen - A never ending supply of letters, however a timer is driving you to think quickly.

Progressive - Each word found causes the letters to rise one higher. Don't let them reach the top.

Lightning - Letters are falling from the sky at an every increasing pace. Be quick or they'll stack to high.

Chaos - A hectic cross between the Zen and Lightning modes. Can you react fast enough to survive?

How To Play

- Quickly slide your finger over adjacent letters to form words forwards, backwards, sideways...any way you can!
- You can also tap single adjacent letters at a time to create a word. Double tapping the final letter to finish the word.
- Try creating words using all the same color blocks as you will receive a 5x bonus each in the completed word.
- Completing a 4+ letter word will cause a random letter will glow green. Use this glowing letter in your next word will grant you an additional 10x word score bonus.
- Completing a 5+ letter word will cause the letters adjacent to the completed word to also be included within the total word score.
- There are two special tiles within the game that are triggered when an adjacent word is completed.
- The first is the shuffle tile which will cause all the letters on the screen to be swapped randomly.
- The second is the 20x bonus tile which will give an additional 20x word score bonus.

Very close to 5 stars

Good sized dictionary, no bugs I've noticed, and fun. If it had an "endless" mode it would be perfect. An untimed mode that refills the tiles. I know it doesn't lend itself to comparing scores with friends on Gamecenter(tm), and I don't care. Sometimes I just want to make words until I'm done, not when the tiles or timer tell me I'm done.

Fun Word Game

I am a big fan of games like text twist, words with friends and other word search games. If you like games like those then this is a perfect app for you. The game has many different and interesting modes each with it's own unique challenge.

Great game! Right up there with "Spelltower". Only problem is you cannot save your game to continue later. Once you start a game and turn off your device it ends the game!! Please update with a "save" option in the menu.
