Description

A unique intelligent word game and avalanche of fun combined... You have angered the mountain and guess what? It is sending avalanches of letters to bury you! Boulders tumbling, rolling and ricocheting off one another. You need to spell your way out!

Break boulders by spelling out words before they can block your escape. Watch your head when the molten boulders appear or use them to your advantage, these hard hitters blow out their surroundings, creating huge gaps.

Rich 3D graphics and awesome physics add an element of beauty to the game. Use the physics to your advantage by getting molten boulders in the perfect spot to earn huge points. This is not your normal word game. We added strategy to an already fun genre of game by giving it a nice twist and a punch of physics.

As time goes by the mountainside seems to shake more and more, dislodging boulders faster and faster. Anger the mountain by clearing the level before the clock signals the second wave. You get tons of points but the mountain reacts by speeding up to the next round. Another way to anger the mountain is to prove how smart you are by earning a point score goal. Each word created earns you points. More complex words earn you a better score. While spelling words in quick secession earns you even higher scores. Magma boulders earn huge scores, rewarding you for the point scores of the surrounding letters.

Caution: Can be addicting :-)

I enjoy playing word games. This has a nice easy tempo in the beginning and then the boulders start to come a little faster each time, but if you play word games enough, this allows you to enjoy successes and it's refreshing to play a game that isn't like all the other games. Read the "interactive" tutorial, it's easy quick and helpful. Would like to see the option to change backgrounds but even if it never happens, it's still a great game.
