Pick your words wisely! As you work, more tiles rise from the bottom of the screen, and itll take all of your lexicological wits, and tactical know-how to keep them down. If any of the letters make it to the top row, its game over.

- TOWER MODE : No pressure here. Try and get the highest score possible out of 140 tiles, eliminating small words to set up 7- and 8-letter blockbusters!

- PUZZLE MODE : Every word you make adds a new row of letters! Strategic word finding at its best.

- EXTREME PUZZLE MODE : Puzzle mode with the minimum word length cranked up. Experts only!

- ZEN MODE : Puzzle mode without any length requirements.

- RUSH MODE : Rows of letters build up over time. Find words as fast as you can, but be careful you dont back yourself into a corner!

- DEBATE MODE : Feeling good? Challenge your friends in this intense online multiplayer mode.

- [Bonus!] SUPER TOWER MODE : (iPad Pro only) Try and get the highest score possible out of 432 tiles, eliminating small words to set up 7- and 8-letter blockbusters!

GAME CENTER leader boards and achievements, for each mode, and highest scoring word!

Pros and cons of SpellTower app for iPhone and iPad

SpellTower app good for

Very beautiful game, Nice idea, really! But really need language French for more fun!! Please add new Languages!!!
Thank you for porting this great game to iPhone. I would have had to buy an iPad just because I wanted to play this game!
Beautifully designed game. What Im missing are local statistics containing all the words youve ever used (and how many times youve used them) sorted alphabetically or by length.
Really awesome game that exercises your brain and is addictive as hell. Good update as well!!
So much fun; love all the different options-it is 4 games in one!
Ive had hours of fun with SpellTower—cant put it down. One suggestion — can you please make it work when I rotate my iPad to landscape orientation? My case only allows the iPad to stand up in landscape — in portrait orientation, its awkward to hold the iPad in that position for an extended period. Other than that—its awesome. People constantly approach me in public and ask for the name of the App!

Some bad moments

What happened to the update with the other announced languages?
This used to be great but the quality has deteriorated. It no longer opens regularly and freezes on the start pane. Fix this glitch SpellTower!
Really liked the game but has been freezing on the loading and never does let me play as it kicks me out. So frustrating and am getting ready to take it off my phone. Please fix this soon.
This game sticks it doesnt open a doesnt do anything It looked interesting but cannot get it to work, so therefore I am not paying for it
It is a fun game but the tiles along the right hand side of the screen are hard to select. All my other games work fine so its not my phone.
I very much enjoyed this game, but everytime i exit out it locks me out, looses my place and makes me start over. I understand the tutorial only takes a few seconds, but i know how to play thanks.
