Stringy Things

By James Gamble

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Stringy Things is a collection of word games, developed over the course of many weeks.

A youtube trailer is available here..

The current version includes four fantastically replayable word puzzles, and there's many more to come.
Each update will bring a brand new word game, or at least until I run out of ideas, anyway!

Stick with us, as we build to become the biggest set of word games on your iPhone, or iPod Touch!

Current game list

1. Strings
Find the words within the grid of letters. Words can be horizontal, vertical, or a snake-like combination of the two.
The longer your word, the more points you score.
Unlike other word search games, the letters will disappear as you progress, with new letters appearing at the top of the grid, to keep the game moving along.

2. Rack
With a set of 7 letters available, try to fit the best word that you can, onto the available line of squares.
The scoring tiles will shuffle around with each word, so you'll need to place your word at just the correct point, in order to score the highest number of points.

3. Triplets
You're given three letters, and an onscreen keyboard!
Try to find the longest word you can, which includes those three letters, in the same order.
eg, TLP would be TeLePhone
or ORG might be ORanGe

4. Tubes
Drop letters into the tubes in a reverse order, to build words running from the top to the bottom.
If you have a usable word in a tube, tap the tube, and it'll find the word, so long as it starts from the top.
If you've mixed up the word, it will no longer work, and you'll need to try to clear out the tube to get to it.


There are many more word games to come.
If there's something you'd like to see, let me know.

What's New in Version 1.04

Fourth Game. Tubes, where you must attempt to build words backwards, within each tube.

Various unimportant bugfixes, including a massive sprite/game fix for iPad (iPhone mode) users.

Extra Menu elements to help you figure out my odd menu!
