Spuzzle, Inc. Releases New Social Word Game Competition App Linking Crossword Puzzles with Hangman and Word Search

October 18, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Word puzzle enthusiasts, bring your "A" game. Spuzzle, Inc. launches a new social word game challenge in the form of Word vs Word, an app with the all-in-one link between a crossword puzzle, hangman and a word search game.

The game offers social interaction with live turn-based play and chat messaging with friends and random opponents or equally challenging solo matches. From the more than 3,500 word games available in the iTunes App Store, Word vs Word is an accumulation of all things word game players find addictive, fun and rewarding.

Word vs Word challenges players to uncover a secret word between three and eight letters. Through strategic process of elimination, intuitive selection and a little luck, the winning player reveals the secret word first and is presented with that word's definition. As educational as it is entertaining, the app provides a social venue for learning new words and definitions.

"Word games appeal to the masses," said Jeff Russell, president and Co-Owner of Spuzzle. "Word vs Word brings an entirely novel game to the app community that will engage people of all ages and skill levels. This game will test players, provide them with a new leisure activity, and educate them all at once."

As a part of Apple's App Store Volume Purchase Program, Spuzzle will allow educational institutions to purchase Word vs Word in volume and distribute it to its users.

According to Russell, the concept and idea of Word vs Word is original and unique. "There are many word game apps available for people to play from Scrabble® to Boggle®, however the history of Word vs Word stems from a family-formed game that was passed down over the last 50 years. Now, instead of playing around a table with paper-and-pencil, family and friends can play across the world by tapping-and-typing."

Word vs Word can be played on the iPhone, iPod touch and the iPad and is available in the iTunes App Store under the Game-Word category (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/word-vs-word/id441028725). Future releases and versions will be introduced, including a HD version for the iPad.
