From the creator of SpellTower, comes a new and completely original word game!
Anagrams meets Word Search, with a sprinkle of Crosswords.

Typeshift is the modern anagram puzzle; re-imagined from the ground up, combining wordplay, modern game design, and a mobile-first approach.

In most anagram games, you search for new combinations within a single word, but in Typeshift, you search within three to five words stacked & scrambled up together.

Shift columns of letters up and down as you try to spell words in the center row. Play continues until you have used all letters in a puzzle at least once.

Special Clue Puzzles combine Crosswords with Anagrams as you match clever clues provided by Typeshift's various puzzle authors.

- Daily Word Game Play with Global Leaderboards -

Typeshift features a free daily challenge with global leaderboards. The easiest challenge for the week appears on Monday, and progressively more challenging puzzles build throughout the week.

Compare your fastest Typeshift daily solving times with players around the globe!

Typeshift continues my quest to re-imagine classic newspaper games in the digital era.
Where SpellTower tackled word search and Really Bad Chess handled chess puzzles, Typeshift re-examines Anagrams and Crosswords.

Typeshift has been a joy to develop, and I hope you have as much fun playing it as I had making it.
As always, thanks so much for your support!

Customer Reviews

Super fun, but....

This is almost a 5-star app.
Pros: The puzzles are fun and challenging. It’s a unique word game with many levels from super simple to massively hard. Once you get the hang of it, it can be addicting. If you like word games, this one is definitely worth getting.
Cons: I would like the app better if it had more clue puzzles and the letters on the non-clue puzzles dropped off when they were no longer needed like in the clue puzzles. Also, when I’m stuck on a puzzle, I’ll go to the next puzzle and then come back, but I lose all the progress of the puzzle I’m on. With these minor fixes, I’d give it 5 stars. However, even with these small bothers, I highly recommend it to word game and crossword aficionados.

Annoying ads

I’ve been enjoying the game, but recently these intrusive, annoying ads that promise a $1000 gift card are diffusing some of the enjoyment. First of all, I do not seem to be able to see the definitions anymore. If I try, one of these ads appears, and the only option is "OK". There’s no way back to the definition page. Furthermore, the ad seems to promise $1000 gift card for answering a few questions or picking the right box (hint: you always get it right on the third try). If you read a little further, the "too good to be true" reveals itself as a commitment to buy...that’s as far as I got before I got disgusted by the deception. It wouldn’t be so bad if you could close the ad, but I haven’t found a way to do so.

What’s with the “You have been selected to win...”?

I was testing this game out with the intention of picking it up for my wife when a dialogue fashioned to look like an SMS message popped up telling me that “you have just been selected to win a $1000 coupon“.

The dialogue was definitely part of the game. No way am I going to purchase a game that will spam me like that.
