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 -

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

As always, thanks so much for your support!

Customer Reviews

Yes, I know this is supposed to be a challenge but......

I really do like this game and turn to it more than any other word games. I play only the clue puzzles, my frustration and reasons for only 4 stars instead of 6 are 1: I am 70 and many of the clues assume that I am of the same generation of the authors. Cartoons, television and technology terms are not universally the same. I am not adverse to looking up the clues I am completely stumped on, but I computer jargon wasn’t an a thing at a time before computers. 2: Many of the clue sets will reset when left incomplete. It is a nonstarter to find I have to start from scratch when I return to complete the set.

It maybe that I am not clever enough for #1 and not patient enough for #2 but it has tainted my view of the game. That said, it is worth every penny and I will continue struggling through and will purchase more clues puzzles.

Excellent word game with lots of content

Sliding letters to form words is much more clever than it sounds, and the provided puzzles vary between pleasingly light games, solvable tricky puzzles requiring thought, and bogglingly hard obscure sets. My favorite are the clue puzzles, which feel like a cross between crossword puzzles and anagram word puzzles. There are lots of solid puzzles included plus many more packs you can buy, so it does a good job at serving both casual players who want something cheap and obsessed fans who want lots of content. There are also daily puzzles that escalate in difficulty over the week.

Great fun! But not all words in the dictionary!!

I will give this the only 4-stars bec ause quite a few of the words are not really words and not in the dictionary. Some are just grammatically incorrect.

I have started clicking on words I don't recognize and there is no definition for quite a few of them. But - the game is still fun! I play it every day and even the online daily puzzle when I remember. A lot of them stump me but most of the time I can find all the words.

Thank you Zach Gage!!
