[prMac.com] New York, New York - Spark rounds of fun by competing against friends in a battle of wit and wiles with the immediate release of Wordstop for the iOS. A uniquely challenging 2-person word game, Wordstop asks players to get creative in making their opponent form words of three or more letters from a continuous letter sequence. A scholastic challenge, an educational tool, and a fun way to discover quirky, new words - Wordstop is simply addictive and perfect for enjoying an absolutely amazing and indubitably intelligent word building game with friends and family.
Wordstop lets players engage in an exciting and enriching competition while testing their imagination and creativity, regardless of skill. Players take turns alternately adding letters to a growing letter cluster. The first player to resign, to play a non-existent letter chain or to form a complete word of 3 letters or more loses. With over 17,000 possible play combinations after the first 3 moves, Wordstop includes game enhancing features such as bombs for removing irrelevant letters and the vocabulary expanding Word Wizard.
"Wordstop was born out of love for words and apps," commented Alexandra Kazantseva, Wordstop co-creator. "Its a game that can be picked up in seconds but take years to master. No matter how good or bad your vocabulary, you will constantly discover words you never thought existed. We felt that traditional word games have become repetitive and are thrilled to introduce Wordstop to the casual players on the lookout for addictive social games, to families wanting fun and education and wordsmiths eager to test their word chess skills."
