Ten Eighteen Studios Inc. releases WordWorthy app game for iOS, fusing educational and strategy game genres for hours of addictive wordplay
TORONTO – January 15, 2013 – Canadian indie app company Ten Eighteen Studios Inc. announced Tuesday the launch of their first game, WordWorthy. Available now for iPhone on the iTunes App Store, WordWorthy is an exciting new take on word games, combining a slide-tile puzzle with word-building action.
Players find and build words in a grid of random letters by selecting adjacent letters. One empty letter square allows players to re-arrange the letters on the board to spell longer and “worthier” words. The worthier the word, the better the score. Armed letter squares and stone letter squares pop up when players get lazy – spelling too many three-letter words or the same word too many times. It’s game over when a player doesn’t make a word with the armed letter square before its timer runs out.
WordWorthy’s motto is “Learn something new everyday, every time you PLAY!”
“We’ve played a lot of other word games, and our feeling is that they are highly addictive but you are not actually learning much,” says co-creator, Mercedes Grundy. “WordWorthy’s high-level vocabulary ‘challenge’ words give players the opportunity to improve their spelling and learn new vocabulary while they play.”
Co-creator and designer, Joseph Gatto, adds, “WordWorthy is addictive, so we wanted to complement the game-play with a fresh and sophisticated design that’s easy on the eyes when you play for long periods of time.”
- Challenge Words – high-level vocabulary words complete with definitions
- Bonus Picture Game– takes a photo from your own photo library and turns it into a slide-tile puzzle
- Top Words – keep track of the best words you’ve ever spelled
WordWorthy is now available for $1.99 on the iTunes App Store.
