Description

Looking for a word game that goes beyond a simple Scrabble/Boggle/Jumble clone? SpellTower is for you.

As seen In The New York Times Magazine, on Apple's iPhone 5 Announce Website, and in Apple Stores

--- There appears to be a bug with iOS7 and bluetooth multiplayer. I'm working on a update that fixes this, along with adding some exciting new features that I hope to release before the end of the year, sorry about that ---

#3 Top Paid App on iPad, #21 on iPhone!

Find and swipe (or tap!) words in 5 challenging modes. Make long words or use bonus tiles to clear extra letters from the screen!

Once you have it down, Challenge your friends via intense local multiplayer.

* WORDS + STRATEGY = AWESOME *
Pick your words wisely! As you work, more tiles rise from the bottom of the screen, and it'll take all of your lexicological wits and tactical know-how to keep them down. If any of the letters make it to the top row, it's game over. 

* FIVE AMAZING MODES * 
- TOWER MODE : No pressure here. Try and get the highest score possible out of 150 letters, eliminating small words to set up 7- and 8-letter blockbusters!

- PUZZLE MODE : Every word you make adds a new row of letters! Strategic word finding at its best. 

- EXTREME PUZZLE MODE : Puzzle mode with the minimum word length cranked up. Experts only!

- RUSH MODE : Rows of letters build up over time. Find words as fast as you can, but be careful you don't back yourself into a corner! 

- DEBATE MODE : Feeling good? Challenge your friends in this intense local multiplayer mode.

GAME CENTER leader boards and achievements for each mode and highest scoring word!

What's New

Version 3.1.3 (Sep 27, 2012)

Man. I'm so sorry about all these save game issues. I think I need to take a vacation! Everything should be sorted out finally with this version. Sometimes its hard being the only developer on a project. Again, i'm so sorry about all of this!

(if you've previously lost your save files from 3.1.1 or 3.1.2 it's normal for you to lose your saves again upgrading to this, but this is the last time! People who never had issues before should be okay, and this issue should never come up again)

* 3.1.3 fixes a local save clearing bug in 3.1.2 *
* 3.1.2 fixes bugs with multiplayer debate mode *
* 3.1.1 fixes some small issues with iCloud and multitasking *

Thanks so much for all your support everyone! I have some very cool updates planned for the future as well, but I wanted to get out a version ASAP for all the people buying new iPhones this friday! This update contains some real cool stuff, but it could be a bit confusing, so read carefully to see what's in store!

- supports the iPhone 5.
(If you're lucky enough to have a new iPhone, I've added 'iPad Puzzle Mode' for you! It's an extra puzzle mode with a full-size iPad grid (8x14) to make good use of the new longer display)

- iCloud support*
* the iPhone and iPad versions will NOT sync with each-other because they use different sized grids.

iCloud support is in here primarily to support cloud syncing to the Mac version in the future.

**The only exception to this is 'iPad Puzzle Mode' on the new iPhone 5 will sync with 'Puzzle Mode' games played from an iPad

I've sorted this bug out and submitted an update which should come out soon. I'm so sorry! I should take a vacation :( !!

sorry for so many updates so fast!

Version 3.0.2 (Apr 23, 2012)

- Fixes Number Visibility on Blue Tiles in Night Mode
- Fixes Crash on 4.2.x devices (please delete the application and re-download it entirely if you've been having crashes)

Hey guys. This is a tiny update that I'm pushing at a bad time to reset my reviews. I'm pushing it live for the 8 people that emailed me because they couldn't run the game on their 4.2 devices. It's not a great move chart-wise, but I want everyone to be able to play. I'd really appreciate any ratings you could give to push the number of review back up! Thanks so much!!

Wow that took a lot longer than I had anticipated, but I'm really excited to announce SpellTower 3.0!

In addition to Multiplayer and iPad3 Retina Support, I tried to get in as many community requests as possible. I hope you all continue to love the game. Thanks so much for your support, especially with the great reviews last time around. As always, if you love it please rate it, those ratings really do make a difference! You all are amazing! I'll be sure to never put a review nag in SpellTower :)

Version 2.1 (Jan 12, 2012)

Thanks so much for loving SpellTower! This update has only a few new things, but I tried to add some things you've been asking for. Now that it's done I'm all ready to start working hard on a multiplayer mode :) Keep your eyes open for more updates soon!

Please don't forget to rate SpellTower again if you love it!
I really hate those nagging 'please rate my app' pop-ups, so against the advice of my friends, I haven't put them in SpellTower. Help me prove to my friends that developers don't need to use nagging popups! :)

- added word list for post game to see what words you made
- improved dictionary
- fixed performance on ipod 4, improved performance on iphone 4
- fixed game center nagging (hopefully!)
-Now requires minimum iOS 4.2 due to errors in 4.1
