Word by word, developer Row Sham Bow hopes to make its new game the next big puzzler for smartphones.
Letter by Letter is a turn-based title for Android and iOS where players find words to take control of spaces on a playing field. Users increase their score while taking away points from their opponent.
“We worked really hard to reward players that have a good vocabulary rather than an arcane knowledge of the kinds of words traditional crossword-based puzzle games employ,” said Letter by Letter creator John Taylor. “We built a highly competitive game with an evolving strategy that develops in layers over the course of play.”
Layers … like an onion.
The game is available Friday, November 30, for Android and iOS devices. You can find it here.
