Alphabear 2 is an original English word puzzle game by Spry Fox, and the sequel to our hit 2015 game!
In Alphabear 2, you spell words by selecting letters on a puzzle grid. When you use letters that are adjacent to each other, bears appear! The more letters you use, the bigger the bear gets, and the more points you earn. Spelling words cleverly is the key to success!
When you solve the puzzles, you'll earn new bears for your permanent collection. These bears can team up to help you in future games! They increase the points you earn, extend your timer, modify the game board, and more.
Fans of the original Alphabear will appreciate the much-improved "bear speech" -- the words you spell will appear in funny cartoons like always, but the all-new templates come with a huge variety of backgrounds and amusing props.
Lastly, a smart dictionary and other new features make Alphabear 2 a great way to improve your English and have fun while doing it!
So what are you waiting for? The best word puzzle game of 2018 awaits! :-)

Ratings and Reviews
This is one of the most highly polished and feature rich games on the iOS store. This game is free, which is ridiculous as there’s no intrusive ads or forced video watching. Instead they gamify the ad experience with some hilariously meta commentary that has me actually watching ads because I want to contribute to “TV time!” I’m going to “purchase” this game (disabling ads is a little steep at $9.99) but I want to really help this developer be successful. It’s great to learn new words too, which this game has helped me do.
The only negative I’ve found so far is that with someone who has a larger (more verbose!) vocabulary, the game doesn’t really reward you for going way above the required score at the beginning. I’ll sometimes end up with a few thousand points over the limit and a fully completed tile (the largest “biggest bear award”) but I don’t really get rewarded for it aside from some cloth. Would be nice to have the game acknowledge more power players in the early stages and perhaps unlock the medium and difficult modes a little earlier (I’m still on easy as I haven’t progressed to the later chapters yet despite nearly always acing each stage).
Aside from that—this is one of the best and most polished apps on the iOS store and I'm very happy to support it!
This is an amazing game with great graphics and a fun story to keep you just interested enough to play but not enough to be a problem or get in the way of the gameplay. The unique bears, tv time function, rechargeable honey, and special events add a little something that other games don’t have. I’ve only gotten one or two intrusive ads in the month or so I’ve been playing this game. I’m just wondering if you could have a feature to make your own levels or bears that can be unlocked by helping people out by, say, sending them honey. You could friend people and send gifts to earn custom bears. Or maybe there’s a different currency, say, candies, and you can pay a certain amount of candies to make a custom bear. Then you have different levels of items and accessories and powers. Common level stuff is free but rare, epic, and legendary bears cost candies. You can earn candies through tournaments and by competing with your friends. Overall I love the game, so do my friends and family, and I can’t wait to see what the developers have in store!
Stopped playing at level 4 👎🏻
I much preferred the first Alphabears game. What annoys me about this second one and why I stopped playing it is that they disallow you from bingeing on the game. You can kind of binge for the first few levels, but they’ve created ways to slow and stop your progress starting at level 4 so it takes much longer for you to get through it. It’s probably a financial reason, so they get more longevity (ad views and such) out of each player or something like that. But I went from super excited to frustrated to “meh, never mind.” I don’t have the desire to check in on a game daily for months so I can play the few boards they dole out that day. I even looked at purchasing the game ($10 ain’t cheap) but you still can’t binge—no infinite honey. So why the heck would I buy the game??? I’ll be honest, I’m bummed—I was looking forward to this. But I’ve deleted it off my phone and iPad because it feels like an obligation—one more task I have to do for the day. And when I do want to sit down and do something mindless for a few hours, I get to play a handful of boards and I’m forced to be done. Lame. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
