- From the creator of critically acclaimed titles Halcyon, Bit Pilot, and Unify - 

Find and swipe (or tap!) words in 5 challenging modes. Make long words or use bonus tiles to clear extra letters from the screen!

Once you have it down, Challenge your friends via intense local multiplayer.

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. 

- 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 : Puzzle mode 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! 

- DEBATE MODE : Feeling good? Challenge your friends in this intense local multiplayer mode.

GAME CENTER leader boards and achievements for each mode and highest scoring word!

What's New in Version 3.1.3

Man. I'm so sorry about all these save game issues. I think I need to take a vacation! Everything should be sorted out finally with this version. Sometimes its hard being the only developer on a project. Again, i'm so sorry about all of this!

(if you've previously lost your save files from 3.1.1 or 3.1.2 it's normal for you to lose your saves again upgrading to this, but this is the last time! People who never had issues before should be okay, and this issue should never come up again)

* 3.1.3 fixes a local save clearing bug in 3.1.2 *
* 3.1.2 fixes bugs with multiplayer debate mode *
* 3.1.1 fixes some small issues with iCloud and multitasking *

Thanks so much for all your support everyone! I have some very cool updates planned for the future as well, but I wanted to get out a version ASAP for all the people buying new iPhones this friday! This update contains some real cool stuff, but it could be a bit confusing, so read carefully to see what's in store!

- supports the iPhone 5.
(If you're lucky enough to have a new iPhone, I've added 'iPad Puzzle Mode' for you! It's an extra puzzle mode with a full-size iPad grid (8x14) to make good use of the new longer display)

- iCloud support*
* the iPhone and iPad versions will NOT sync with each-other because they use different sized grids.

iCloud support is in here primarily to support cloud syncing to the Mac version in the future.

**The only exception to this is 'iPad Puzzle Mode' on the new iPhone 5 will sync with 'Puzzle Mode' games played from an iPad

Customer Reviews

Please make an undo button!

I really like this game. Simple and addictive. Can you PLEASE make an undo button. I like making long words using letters all over the grid. If I knock out a letter that I need it's really annoying and I can't get it back:( . Also it would be really handy to be able to mark letters that I want to use in the bigger words. Can you make a 'marker' button in the Tower mode. Thanks for the game. Even without the above it's great fun.

Simple Yet Addictive

It's the attention to detail that counts in a game. This is simple yet highly addictive. Performance and stability are great. I also quite like the graphics design which looks delightful on the iPhone 5. I thought I was over word games but Spell Tower is a refreshing change

Me love it long time

The most addictive game I've played. And it can't be Too Bad for your brain, all that searching for words.
Part of the satisfaction comes from Not always using the best/most impressive word, thus surviving for much longer (hint: watch your edges)
