The language puzzle game for word lovers and language learners, playable with English words, French words, Spanish words or German words. Rearrange the letters in each grid using colour clues to form a set of interlocking words. Customise the game to your desired pace and vocabulary level. Remember to maximise your use of bonus squares while you attempt to beat the clock in later levels.
WHAT REVIEWERS HAVE BEEN SAYING:
"LetterMeister is super addictive. I would recommend LetterMeister to anyone who likes word or puzzle games." - GizmoCube.com "
"Hard to put down once you get started" (App Store)
"Great little 'thinking' game ... really enjoying it and can't put it down" (App Store)
Each level consists of a "crossword" of interlocking words. However, some of the letters forming these words have been jumbled up. By swapping pairs of letters, you must get all letters back into the right place.
As a clue to their correct placement, incorrectly positioned letters are colour-coded:
- RED indicates that a letter is in the wrong word
- YELLOW indicates that a letter is in the correct word, but in the wrong position
(A letter at an intersection may therefore have two colours.)
Swap a pair of letters by successively tapping each letter of the pair that you wish to swap. Once the letters have been swapped, their colours will be updated to reflect their new status.
Once a letter is moved into its correct position, you have a limited time to move another letter into its correct position in order to be awarded a bonus. Try to beat your record for the longest "chain" of correct letter bonuses.
Each successive level becomes more difficult, with more words on the board, more letters out of place, along with restrictions on the time available and permitted number of wrong moves.
In later levels, also look out for BONUS squares: if the first letter moved to one of these squares is correct, then you will be awarded bonus points.
From the OPTIONS screens, you may choose between three vocabulary levels and three time settings depending on your desired difficulty level.

What's New in Version 2.2
The game can now be played with German vocabulary in addition to English, French and Spanish.
For the first time I loved a game which did not have hardcore gaming graphics offcourse because its a fun word game !! I am highly impressed by the work that the developers did. Its so much fun while playing this game, I was addicted to it. The first time I opened it and I started to make weird comments, but seriously you cannot judge a game without trying it for a long period of time !!
Great work !
remove the time and wrong letter limits
I'd give this great little game five stars were it not for the fact that it becomes very frustrating to play. Each level imposes both a time limit AND a wrong letter swap limit.
For those of us who just want to play a relaxing game, this is stupid and pointless. I want to be able to finish a level and get the enjoyment of solving the puzzle without stupid artificial constraints.
Developers: add two options to DISABLE the time limit and wrong letter limit so that those of us who just want to solve the puzzle in a leisurely, non-pressure manner can do so.
One of the best - check it out
This is one of my favorite word games (certainly in top 5). I would have given it 5 stars, but I'm a conservative evaluator, and there are some things I'd like to see changed. Here are my suggestions:
1. Provide a status of errors (number) remaining
2. Provide option to turn off time limit.
3. Make the "recycle time" shorter (between end of one game and start of another).
