Veteran gamers will know of classics such as Mega lo Mania and Sensible World of Soccer and some of you may know that it was Jon Hare who was the designer behind them. Now he’s delving into the world of iOS by launching Word Explorer for all devices.
“My plan with Word Explorer was to create a game that brought crosswords into the 21st Century,” said Jon Hare, the game’s designer, “it is the culmination of many years of work by an amazingly talented team, and it’s great to finally unleash it on the world!”
The idea of the game is to travel to various cities to take photographs. You obtain coins to travel and buy equipment by playing the game, which is simply sliding letters to spell the answer to the clues given.
You can take on friends through the online multiplayer via Game Center to see who can guess any of the over 25,000 words and a multitude of photo’s which include facts and trivia. A PC version is scheduled for release this month, too.
Not only that, it’s free. All you need to do is visit the App Store and download it to your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch!
