  • Summary: Waiting for a word game that does your iPad justice? The wait is over, SpellTower is here. - From the creator of critically acclaimed titles Halcyon, Bit Pilot, and Unify - Find and swipe words in 4 challenging modes. Make long words or use bonus tiles to clear extra letters from the screen! * 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. * FOUR 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! GAME CENTER leader boards for each mode and highest scoring word! Expand

    Whether you're a word-game dabbler or a recovering Tetris addict with a penchant for letters, SpellTower is essential.

    A must-buy for word fiends, SpellTower is an uncommonly attractive and thoughtfully designed puzzler.

    It might not have the high-power graphics and visualizations used for other word apps, but it doesn't need to. Either way, it's addicting.

    With no crutch system in place, you know without a doubt that you've earned every point you got, and that's a pretty good feeling.

    One of the most elegant word games you're likely to find on the app store, with modes to test both those who like to think on their feet or prefer a game with little to no pressure.

    A brainteaser that's nervy, humbling, and strangely energising. If you can handle the stress, SpellTower is magnificent.

    There's not much to SpellTower, but what's there is pretty good.

    Great app, got this for my Ipod touch and loved it, its an easy game of tapping some letters to make a word. Easy enough? then getting other letters e.g Z X and Q, gives you lots of points and then giving you a line to clear, love this app, and would recommend Expand
