Mobile Word Game WordHeist Debuts In The App Store
November 20, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsNovember 20, 2014 - Today Sofaking Interactive announces that its game WordHeist™, is now available in the Apps Store. WordHeist™, the newest word game to hit the mobile market, pits players against each other, creating words in a race against time. In a unique twist, players may simultaneously steal opponents' words, and with it, their points. By combining word skills and reflexes, WordHeist™ hopes to bring a fresh challenge for the millions of word game enthusiasts who have made games like Scramble with Friends, Words with Friends, and Scrabble household names.
WordHeist™, created by Sofaking Interactive, has three gameplay modes: Live, Turn-based, and Practice. Live mode allows players to face off against up to three other people in a lightning round. Turn-based mode lets players create and steal words in stages. In Practice mode, players can refine their skills in preparation for their next match.
WordHeist™ features a unique, layered ranking system, assessing the player's skill level after each individual game. Users begin as petty thieves and work their way up through the ranks to achieve Notorious Bank Robber status.
"Word games are always fun and challenging, but it's time for something more exciting. We wanted to inject an adrenaline rush into our games, so we introduced sneak attacks, letting them not only win points but simply steal them, " says creator Kelvin Pan.
WordHeist™ is based on a game Pan played with his college friends at the University of Michigan. After founding his company in 2013, he decided it was time to take his favorite game digital. "I can't count the number of nights we stayed up in the dorms at Michigan playing this game. I know from many late nights myself how addictive it can be, and we look forward to sharing it with players everywhere."
WordHeist™ is now available for download on the App Store for free. For more information, check out the game's profile page on Facebook, visit WordHeist™ on twitter or check out their website WordHeist.com.
