Staffordshire, UK – June 07 2012 – Astraware® is excited to announce the launch of their popular word games pack, Astraware Word Games, for iPhone®, iPod® touch and iPad®. Originally released exclusively on the Barnes & Noble’s NOOK Tablet, Astraware Word Games is a beautifully presented pack of five classic word games that is sure to appeal to lovers of words and language. The UK-based studio has added extra features to the original game and it now includes a daily challenge, a built-in dictionary, a bookcase award system and, for the first time ever, delightful doodles are drawn as players find words!
The games included in the pack are Shuffle, Wordsearch, Hexxed, Gridlock, and Spellmaster and comprise anagram games, word searches, grid puzzles, and spelling challenges. Each of the five games offers a choice of difficulty levels or puzzle sizes and the ability to play Timed or Classic modes, so players can opt for a challenging brain teaser or a relaxing game to pass the time. As requested by existing users of the game, a Daily mode has also been added to allow players to compete against players worldwide.
“People who read a lot of books naturally build up wide vocabularies, and we have built a set of games that not only allow players to take advantage of this, but encourage players to find and use new words too,” said Howard Tomlinson, CEO of Astraware. “In particular looking for new words to trigger doodles is a lot of fun!”
Astraware Word Games boasts over 2,000 lovingly hand-drawn doodles and benefits from a generous 100,000 word dictionary, which grades words not just on their letters and length, but also on how interesting or unusual they are and rewards players accordingly. And with over 30 classic books to collect as awards, the game is sure to keep players entertained for a long time.
Astraware Word Games is available for download through the iTunes App Store for an introductory price of $1.99 (typically $4.99). Existing users of Astraware Word Games for Nook or Kindle Fire will be able to download the update with the extra features shortly from Barnes & Noble’s Nook Apps or Amazon’s Appstore for Android, respectively. Support for other platforms including Android OS and webOS for HP Touchpad will follow. For more information on Astraware Word Games visit: www.astraware.com/wordgames.
