[prMac.com] Edinburgh, United Kingdom - Digital Scrawl has announced the release of Letterfall 1.0, a new word construction game with a difference.
Following on from the success of their first two applications, 'Quiz-a-round' and 'Word Chains', the developers at Digital Scrawl have taken a step back to evaluate what makes an iPhone game a good game. While 'playability' and 'a rich set of features' are the well repeated buzzwords, in the real world iPhone gamers expect these things as a minimum. As the mobile app market evolves Digital Scrawl have realised that apps must provide more original ideas than ever before together with a higher level of execution than that which has typically been seen so far.
The latest DS offering has come up with a new challenging format which requires more thought from users than simply dragging a finger across a screen. Letterfall is a word construction game with a difference in that the letters used to create the words fall from the sky as tiles and these letter tiles are not always what they seem. The addictive elements of the game come from the need to constantly think ahead as more tiles of various types are added and also the frantic nature of the gameplay as each individual game reaches its conclusion.
With a strong desire to spoil customers by delivering more than just the basic game itself Digital Scrawl have made Letterfall universal for both iPhone/touch devices and the iPad. While equally playable on both platforms there is no need for customers to pay twice for two versions of the same product, this product has been designed from inception with both platforms in mind.
The ability to share gaming experiences is a quickly growing concept and again this feature is provided through support for Apple's Game Centre platform.
