Find words in an endless stream of letters! As you swipe over letters to create words, used tiles disappear in a cloud of smoke and new tiles fall down from the top of the board. If you like word games or puzzles, SpellRush is the new game you have to try.
With it's quirky yet polished style, SpellRush lets you to play by your own or challenge friends, completely for free. Upgrade to unlock the Shake to Shuffle function, remove ads, get detailed statistics over your progress and see all completed words after every round.
Play with your Game Center friends in epic best-of-5 battles. The first player to win three rounds is the winner. The longer words you write, the more points you get. Find the right balance between finding many short words, and fewer longer words. Get even more points with stars; every time you create a word worth over 10 points, you get a star. When you've collected three stars, they transform into a word multiplier and jump onto the board. Create a word with a multiplier and get 3x times as many points!
Play in any of these languages:
What's New in Version 1.1.1
Thank you all for playing SpellRush, we've got a major update for all of you! If you've got any feedback or love, please share it with us at twitter.com/SpellRush. And thank you for rating SpellRush after every release, it makes a huge difference.
# New in 1.1.1:
Fixed a bug where some friends would be incorrectly rendered while challenging a new friend.
# New in 1.1.0:
NEW Dictionaries! We've added Русский, Íslenska, Ελληνικά, Türkçe, Українська and Polski. Enjoy!
NEW Play against random opponents! Just go to Challenge Friends > Game Center > random opponent, and we'll find you someone to play with.
NEW Deselect tiles! You know when you've started writing a word and you suddenly see that other letter that you really should've selected instead of the last one, and then you select a bunch of random letters to create a word that will definitely fail, so that you can write the better word instead—THAT. That, my friends, is a thing of the past. To deselect letters, just swipe backwards in reversed order.
NEW Wonder how you got so many points on that word? For all of you who've upgraded to Premium, you'll now see how many multipliers you took with every word in the All Words list after each game.
FIXED Improved dictionaries! We've also added a contact section at the bottom of the Settings view – please get in touch if you're missing any words.
NEW If you've been challenged in a different language than your current setting, the invitation will show what language you're being challenged in.
FIXED If you get the same number of points in a round as your opponent, SpellRush will now correctly recognize that as a DRAW, and no player will get a star.
FIXED If you rematch someone from a match that was not played in your default language, the new match will now correctly be set in the same language as the last match, and not your default language.
IMPROVED SPARKLY SHINY THINGS Animations are now smoother, and creating words are so much more fun. Sparkles, sparkles!
NEW You can now easily share your highscores from the Highscore screen. Horray social media! Wooo!
IMPROVED There's now a small shadow under the bottom tile of each column on the game screen, suggesting some depth. It's like 3D!
And many more minor tweaks and bug fixes. Happy tapping!
Unable to upgrade
It's a fun game and I would like to upgrade to the paid version. Unfortunately, every time I try, I get a pop up message saying that the upgrade was unsuccessful. Do the developers already have enough money and don't want mine?
As a side note, it bugs me that a spelling game title is spelled as one word when it should be two - SpellRush vs. Spell Rush
Two Big Flaws
Addictive game; however, there are two major problems:
(1) Many long English words are NOT recognized by SpellRush's dictionary, including:
It's aggravating to correctly spell a long word only to have the game fail to recognize it.
(2) When 14 players in the Game Center fail to continue playing, you are essentially blocked from starting new matches unless you forfeit the old ones ("Maximum number of sessions exceeded"). This is an iOS issue, but developers can allow withdrawals without forfeit.
NOTE: I'll amend this review and rating if these issues are resolved. Thanks!
