Ever wondered what would happen if you crossed Scrabble™ with an RPG? Now you don't have to, because Letter Quest is here!
Help Grimm and Rose, a couple of adorable grim reapers, defeat monsters, ghosts, evil bunnies and more using the power of words!
Letter Quest is a turn-based RPG where players attack monsters by spelling words. But be careful since the monsters know how to fight back - they can create different letter tiles such as poison, plague, stone, whirlwind, duplicator, spike and flipped, steal your health, heal themselves, use critical attacks, and much, much more!
Don't worry - Grimm and Rose have a lot of tricks up their sleeves too, including crystal tiles that give special bonuses, upgradeable weapons, books that provide unique boosts, special items, upgrades, potions, and more!
• 40 stages, with 4 unique ways to play each one
• Five separate areas, each with unique art and music tracks
• Tons of upgrades, books, potions, special items and weapons to help you on your journey
• Over 30 monsters to fight
• Boss monsters with unique abilities
• Over 6 hours of gameplay - much more if you choose to complete everything!
• 70 quests to complete
• 52 achievements
• A built-in dictionary of over 190,000 English words
• Keyboard Support
All of the battles in Letter Quest can be played with keyboard - no more hunting for letters with the mouse if you don't want to! Simply type letters to add them to the current word, hit backspace to remove the last letter typed, and much more!
Letter Quest also supports setting key bindings for most hot-keys right in the game's options menu.
Ratings and Reviews
Enormously fun and addicting, can make your brain hurt
I love this game. Disclosure, I am 50+, and enjoy learning new words.
I used to play RPG’s till about 25 years ago, but got bored of the hack and slash. However, in this game having to come up with words to destroy the monsters is definitely keeping my attention engaged.
I like the various versions of each stage, and the timed games definitely force my brain to think under pressure. Having 15 letters to work with gives me a lot more options than in Scrabble (which I hate because of having so few letters).
As you go through the games in each stage you accumulate gems that you can use to purchase upgrades from the store. These do not require you to pay more money, they are part of the game. The upgrades available make the more difficult stages possible. I have found that the upgrades for increasing max health, and for increasing the damage done the most useful. Fortunately these are the first two upgrades available in the store. I spent my gems on these two early on and ignored the other upgrades till about stage 8. I am now cruising through stage 16.
I also like the way the OS X version shows the meaning of the word I come up with, unlike the iOS version. Yes, sometimes I am guessing. I do jump into Dictionary at times to give me some help, but that won’t work with a timed game in a stage. A couple of family members have downloaded the iOS version and are getting absorbed by it.
I like the screen layout and the animated characters are cute.
Definitely worth the cost. No regrets at having purchased this one.
