[prMac.com] Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom - Lightwood Games today is excited to announce a new game for iPhone and iPad which invites players to bend their minds with a unique new challenge. "Worcle" (taking its name from "Words in a Circle") is an original puzzle, designed and developed by Lightwood Games, which offers a new twist for fans of casual word games.
Shoot balls into a circle to make words. Create words of three or more letters to clear the balls but watch out for the swirling vortex! If the circle fills up, you'll get sucked in and it's game over. The game's strategy mode offers a steady pace with a great learning curve. Whereas quick thinking is required for timed mode, which can get fast enough to make you dizzy! The game turns to Apple's Game Center to allow players to compete against their friends. It awards achievements at certain milestones, for making long or high-scoring words, and discovering ways to find several words using just one move.
Lightwood founder, CEO and pun aficionado, Chris Newman said, "Worcle is a game to curl up with and relax after a day of being driven round the bend. It's a great way to unwind." Other team members have been instructed to describe the game as "a revolution" and "wheel-y great".
