[prMac.com] Bangkok, Thailand - Viqua Games today is pleased to introduce iWordz 1.0, their new Hangman styled word game for iPhone and iPod touch devices. iWordz is based on the classic Hangman game with a twist. It requires players to view the definition of a word, and then work towards uncovering the actual word itself.
Featuring a comfortable and simple user interface, iWordz includes a database of over 12,000 words. The aim of the game is to guess as many words right as possible before running out of life points. Players start out with 20 life points. Each time they guess a letter incorrectly, they lose 1 life point. They get life points back when they guess words correctly. The unique gameplay rules coupled with OpenFeint online high scores support, serve to make iWordz a compelling game for die-hard word game fans and casual gamers alike.
* Guessing words from definitions adds unique trivia game feeling to Hangman style gameplay
* More than 12,000 words providing endless fun
* Great brain exercise to sharpen the mind
* OpenFeint leaderboards and achievements
* Automatic game state saving for quick pickup and play in short sessions
"iWordz was a natural first iPhone project for us because of our experience in developing word games," said Chanon Sajjamanochai, managing director of ViquaSoft Co., Ltd. "One of our previous word games for the PC/Mac, and our first game ever, Tommy and the Magical Words, was an IGF Finalist. So we're somewhat confident in our ability to develop fun and addictive word games and believe iWordz has turned out to be just that."
* iPhone and iPod Touch OS 2.2.1 or later
Pricing and Availability:
iWordz 1.0 is offered at the introductory price of $0.99 USD (Regular $1.99) and is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Word Games category. Review copies are available upon request.
