Stanhope, New Jersey- Apple’s App Store welcomed LetterSlider to its gaming offerings on Wednesday. The app challenges players of all ages to form words by sliding lettered tiles into place, trying to score the most points, spell the most words, accomplish achievements and more in only two minutes.
“The goal was to develop an app that broke the mold of traditional word search games,” said LetterSlider developer Scott Stanchak. “That’s why we believe LetterSlider is one of the most innovative and thought-provoking word search games to hit the Store in years.”
Unlike most word search puzzles, LetterSlider doesn’t restrict players into forming words using letters where the app positions them. Instead, LetterSlider provides players with one open tile spot on its game board, which allows players to strategically shuffle letters around, one at a time, to create new words.
“You’ll constantly find yourself thinking three, four, five moves – or words – ahead,” Stanchak said. “It’s been exciting to hear from people who tell me they’re challenged by LetterSlider more than any other word game on their iOS device.”
To start each new game, LetterSlider provides players with a random collection of 22 English lettered tiles, one double-word tile, one triple-word tile, and a blank tile spot. All standard and bonus lettered tiles feature a point value based on its dictionary commonality.
Players are scored in five categories: total points, total words, most points on a single word, longest word, and 20 Game Center achievements. If one scores enough points or spells the most words, they could end up on the Game Center leaderboard. Players may also share their best scores with friends on Facebook and Twitter.
