Letterpress – Word Game is a brand new and fun looking word game for the iPad and iOS. Here’s its short, sweet pitch on its App Store page:
Find words, steal tiles, color the board! Letterpress is a fresh new word game for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Play against your friends using Game Center! The perfect blend of fun and strategy.
The game is already getting some rave reviews, and it sounds like quite a good idea for those of us who enjoy word games. It’s also notable because its developer is Loren Brichter, the creator of the hugely popular Tweetie Twitter client app. Tweetie was eventually bought out by Twitter themsleves and Brichter worked on the official Twitter app for iOS and Mac. Brichter is responsible for some of the most popular iOS interface elements that are now used in many apps – including the pull-down to refresh gesture that is used in Apple’s own Mail app in iOS 6 and by the hugely popular Facebook app for iOS.
I haven’t had a chance to give the game a try just yet – but I’m sure I will this evening. Have any of you played it yet? If so, please tell us what you think of it in the comments.
Here’s an App Store link for Letterpress – Word Game; it’s a free app with one In-App purchase option labeled ‘Letterpress Upgrade’ for $0.99.
