App Review: Twisty Text Tests Your Spelling Under Pressure
Twisty Text by Brainium Studios is a fast paced word game with a unique interface similar to the online game Text Twist. What you are trying to do is create words out of the 5, 6, or 7 letters given you. When you first start the level, there are letters to a word that have been scrambled being displayed. You can rearrange the letters to make words by dragging them to different spots. You can submit a word you have made by dragging you finger under the letters in the word. If the word you have created is actually a word, then it will be taken for points and displayed in one of the boxes in the top right corner. The boxes are arranged according to the word length and the alphabetical order of the words that belong there.
The longer the word you create, the more points you will receive. In order to advance to the next level, you must solve the longest word. If you fill in all of the boxes before the level ends, you are awarded with extra points. If you give up, and you don’t want to wait for the time to end, press the arrow in the top right of the screen to get new letters. If you have found the largest word made from the letters, your points move on with you. If you didn’t find the longest word, you lose all of your points and your score is saved on the hall of fame list.
In the options you can change the number of letters in the scrambled words. You can also adjust the time limit to be longer or shorter. The less time you have, the more bonus points you receive for each word. The default time limit is 2 minutes and 30 seconds. You can also adjust it so that when you shake your device it will shuffle the letters around. One last feature is night mode, which changes it to a darker screen so it won’t hurt your eyes in the dark.
Twisty Text is well-made game. It is especially entertaining for long car rides. Twisty Text has a great interface that is very nice to look at and use. The gameplay is smooth and fun.
Twisty Text is available in the iTunes App Store for $0.99
