[prMac.com] Lahore, Pakistan - Pepper.pk, an innovative new mobile application developer currently focused on creating leisurely mobile games & effective mobile utilities, has today announced the recent launch of Skitrix: The Word Game for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Created to offer users with leisurely yet mentally engaging entertainment, Skitrix restructures the word game genre to blend classic Scrabble style element with the fast paced falling block structure of games such as Tetris. Players are charged with guiding randomly chosen falling letters to specific rows in order to create words and keep the app's game field clear. Skitrix is currently available for download on the Apple App Store for $0.99.
This innovative game is built for word game enthusiasts interested in experiencing a uniquely dynamic gaming experience. With each passing level random letters drop with increasing speed onto the game's field of play. Players must put together words between three and seven letters long with these falling blocks in order to make portions of a row or column disappear and keep the game's grid from completely filling up. Players can also utilize intermittently available red and blue bonus pills which they can use to erase any row or column. Red pills erase rows while blue pills erase columns. In addition to the pills there is also the bomb, a block that is a combination of the red and blue pills, erasing both the row and column where it lands.
Skitrix is designed for both enjoyment and ease of use. Players have the option of changing the game's themes to feature either all white letter blocks or colored blocks for a different gaming experience. The game's user interface is extremely simple and easy to navigate, while the games touch-screen controls ensure that gameplay simultaneously remains both responsive and intuitive. Providing users with a fast paced word game that is rich in action, Skitrix truly represents a unique gaming experience - one that blends the fun of normal Tetris style games with word based problem solving that so many enjoy to bring users a new level of casual mobile entertainment.
