Alphabuild - Your Very Own Letter Factory

in Education (E)

[] San Francisco, California - Glyfyx Inc today is pleased to announce version 1.02 of Alphabuild, its letter arcade game for iOS. Alphabuild takes place in a whimsical letter factory, where players must capture objects from a conveyor to complete the alphabet. The first level is an easy, no-penalty way to practice letter recognition and construction. At higher levels, players must quickly dodge or zap obstacles before they cause trouble. Players collect power-ups, pop bonus bubbles, and earn stars and points along the way. Alphabuild lets you play as many rounds as needed to earn perfect gold stars for the whole alphabet. Rich visuals and snappy gameplay make Alphabuild a fun educational game for kids, and a catchy reflex game for parents.
