Chalk Up! Lite

Description

Chalk Up! is a new exciting anagrams/word game for your iPhone/iPod/iPad device (now with a FREE Lite version*)

With its two ways of playing (Letters Only / Letters and Pictures), four image sets (generic, colors, flags and Halloween) and its three game modes (Normal, Caesar Code (+1) and Backward) you'll be able to have fun while you're checking your speed and your word skills. And with its GameCenter support (six different leaderboars, and almost twenty achievements to play for) you can compete with your friends.

The aim of the game

In Chalk Up! you simply have to write as many words as you can in the given time, using on-screen letters or pictures (that stand for the first letter of their name).
Every word you write will give you points and a bonus in seconds to extend the lenght of the game. So remember: longer words can be harder to find, but they mean more points and extra time!
Be aware that once a letter is used to write a word, it disappears and it will be replaced with a new one. So a bit of strategy is needed, because you have to take care even of the letters you don't use to write a valid word. Too many equal letters (or "rare" ones) left, or few vowels, can really lower your chances to keep on playing.
Anyway, if during the game you cannot find any word to enter, and you've got enough points, you can buy a suggestion giving up part of your score. A suggested word won't let you earn points or seconds, but it can be essential if things become too odd, and time too short.

Game Modes
Chalk Up! will let you choose three different game modes: Normal, where you have to write words as you normally do (tree = T R E E), Ceasar Code (+1) or Backward.
Ceasar Code (+1) requires that every letter of the word you want to write has to be shifted by one position along the normal alphabetical order (tree = U S F F, house = I N V T F), while Backward mode requires, instead, that you write every word from the last letter to the first one (tree = E E R T, house = E S U O H).

Languages
You will be able to play with Italian or English interface (based on the international setting of your device) and also to check your strength with both dictionaries (you can play with Italian interface AND with English dictionary if you like).

Tips
Pay attention at the info about the longest possible word, and think if going for that, or if it's better to quickly insert something shorter. Keep always an eye on how many similar letter (or vowels) are still available, and try even two letters words if the time is about to run out.
