Help the adorable grim reapers Grimm and Rose 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 fight back by creating different letter tiles such as poison, plague, stone, and whirlwind, or steal your health, heal themselves, use critical attacks, and much, much 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
● 70 quests to complete
● Leaderboards - compete with your friends
● 50 Game Center achievements

Finding the game too difficult? Make sure to check out the upgrades store, especially the first 3 upgrade types - they increase your max health, increase the damage you do by spelling words, and decrease the amount of damage you take from monsters. Some players have been saying the game is too hard by around stage 10-15, but hadn't purchased a single upgrade! So please visit the upgrades shop every once in a while to give Grimm and Rose a fighting chance!

A great way to kill time and work on your scrabble skills!

I guess I don't understand this game

Are there only 5 levels?
One of the goals is to kill 5 monsters but I only see 2? Or 3? when I do the level. I've done the same level 3 times again today and that task never says I've killed 5 monsters. So I've resigned myself to the notion I can spell like crazy. But I can't figure out this game that seems to only have 5 levels.

Developer Response ,

I'm not sure what you mean? There are many more than 5 levels. If you're talking about a quest (which is viewable under "Quests" from the main menu, or when you pause the game), those are across all levels. If it says to defeat 5 monsters in a single stage, then you need to find a stage with at least 5 monsters. If you complete the first star in a stage, it will unlock the next stage, and it will definitely keep going past stage 5. Hope that helps!

Excellent Word/RPG

I found this little game to be a ton of fun. After trying it out for a bit I did pay the couple bucks for the premium version. Totally worth it, even for the ad removal, plus you get extra content. I have not found it to be hard to earn gems enough to buy items without spending further money, but I suspect that may also depend on how good you are at spelling/vocabulary and utilizing bonuses. For me, a great find. Love it!
