[prMac.com] Calgary, Canada - Reaction Software has released version 2.0 of That Word, a word-finding game for the iPhone and iPod touch. The goal of That Word is to accumulate as many points as possible by spelling as many words as you can from six randomly selected letters. Each set of six letters can spell at least one six-letter word, which must be found to continue to the next level.
That Word 2.0 includes many enhancements to the original: new authentic sound effects recorded specifically for That Word; an online scoreboard; a new scoring scheme with many ways to earn bonus points (or lose points); a "Word of the Day" feature (to help players learn some of the more obscure 6-letter words needed to do well in That Word); the ability to listen to iPod music while playing; and improved graphics. Players can share their location, and compare their scores with other players nearby, or globally. The scoreboard also shows top scores from the last 24 hours.

Pricing and Availability:
That Word 2.0.12 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. Promo codes (for the US App Store only) are available for qualified reviewers.
