About SpellTower+

SpellTower+ is a great successor to a classic iOS word game. It adds five brand new modes, some new game mechanics, iCloud backup, new daily challenges, and more.

SpellTower+ Review

SpellTower is a word game with a simple premise: there's a grid full of letter tiles, and you must spell out words with what you're given on the screen. But as you created words, new tiles would rise from the bottom of the screen, and if the letters went above the line at the top, then it's game over.

SpellTower is as much a puzzle game as a word game, with a growing grid of letters that needs to be strategically pruned and managed. Indeed, scoring a five-letter word is pretty tricky under these circumstances – a fact that’s driven home by the extra block-busting reward you receive for doing so.

And busting blocks really is important here. Each letter is a physical brick in a growing tower. Form a word and those bricks will smash, allowing the letters above to clunk down into place. It’s what makes SpellTower+ the most tactile word game on the block since, well, SpellTower.

While the core game is much the same as before, Gage has added a bunch of new flourishes and modes. Yellow letter blocks double your score, while blue blocks will wipe out an entire row of letters like a Tetris match.

New modes like Bubble Puzzle add interesting variables like the requirement to ‘pop’ bubbled letters with adjacent words before they can be used. Blitz ups the speed (and thus difficulty) significantly. Search, meanwhile, gives you a series of entertaining one-hit longest word tasks.

SpellTower+ is an addictive word game for everyone. It's beautiful and has a ton of different game modes for variety. It's the quintessential word game for iPhone and iPad.
