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

Outstanding attention to detail

This is a fun word game to be sure, but what sets it apart is the clear effort made to sweat the design, gameplay, and details. The game plays so smoothly and beautifully. I also like the two modes of play, with and without clues; the variation is quite nice.

Different take on word puzzles

Typeshift has nearly everything you might want in a word puzzle. Variety in both difficulty and vocabulary with a range of puzzle length allowing for a challenge to suit every player. Great stuff!

Simple concept, so much fun!

Intuitive and addictive. My only complaint is that I've been tearing through the available packs, both free and paid, and I want more! I can't get enough of this game.
