Description

- Originally written about in The New York Times, featured in Apple Stores, heard about on NPR, and played by millions, SpellTower is back and better than ever! -

* SMARTER *
Forget that old iffy dictionary- SpellTower is now sporting the full official Merriam-Webster Collegiate, and Merriam-Webster Unabridged word sets!

* PLAYS better *
Two new modes, Super Tower Mode on the iPad Pro, and Zen Mode for all modern devices.

Need a break from those pesky length requirement tiles? Zen mode is what SpellTower fans have been waiting for!

* FEELS great *
Full Taptic Engine support! If you're playing on a iPhone 7 or 7+, just wait till you make a 5+ letter word :)

* LOOKS fantastic *
Fully redone graphics pay homage to the original art while bringing SpellTower into the modern design era. Support for all new mobile iOS devices that have been released since the last SpellTower update (iPad Pro, iPhone 6 and 6+), and glorious 60 frames-per-second animation.

* Has LESS bugs *
Debate mode works great and all the save-related bugs are finally fixed. No more finding your games periodically reset, or missing, after updating to a new device.

* Available in NEW languages *
Available separately today: SpellTower Français, and SpellTower Nederlands apps! More languages coming soon...

It has been a long journey to get this release out, please enjoy it!

- - - -  WORDS + STRATEGY = AWESOME

Pick your words wisely! As you work, more tiles rise from the bottom of the screen, and it'll take all of your lexicological wits, and tactical know-how to keep them down. If any of the letters make it to the top row, it's game over.

SIX AMAZING MODES
- TOWER MODE : No pressure here. Try and get the highest score possible out of 140 tiles, eliminating small words to set up 7- and 8-letter blockbusters!

- PUZZLE MODE : Every word you make adds a new row of letters! Strategic word finding at its best.

- EXTREME PUZZLE MODE : Puzzle mode with the minimum word length cranked up. Experts only!

- ZEN MODE : Puzzle mode without any length requirements.

- RUSH MODE : Rows of letters build up over time. Find words as fast as you can, but be careful you don't back yourself into a corner!

- DEBATE MODE : Feeling good? Challenge your friends in this intense online multiplayer mode.

- [Bonus!] SUPER TOWER MODE : (iPad Pro only) Try and get the highest score possible out of 432 tiles, eliminating small words to set up 7- and 8-letter blockbusters!

GAME CENTER leader boards and achievements, for each mode, and highest scoring word!

Customer Reviews

crashes immediately when launched

It's been doing this ever since 4.0 – I've waited a couple patch versions for this to be fixed, but it hasn't been. (Update for 4.0.3 – it still crashes immediately upon launch, on both iPhone and iPad.)

Love it!

FYI: works perfect on iPhone 6 and the
12" iPad Pro.

One word: PERFECT!

And Thank you for keeping my brain sharp. Seriously!

One last (future) wish: high scores from other players 😁
