[prMac.com] Phoenix, Arizona - ArchSquare today is proud to announce the the first Boggle-like word game "All Words Up" which will be available in the Apple Watch App Store on launch day April 24th. "All Word Up" is a simple yet challenging game of making as many words as possible by connecting adjacent letters before time runs out. The game style and playability fit perfectly in the casual Apple Watch gaming platform.
"All Words Up" brings the popular word puzzle game genre onto the Apple Watch. It is easy to learn and challenging enough for the most advance players. Simply tap the letters to make words 2-letters or longer, and the letters must be connected adjacently to each other. Players have a limited amount of time to make as many words as possible before time runs out. Each letter is weighted in terms of scoring, and longer words will result in higher scores. Players can play by themselves or compete against their friends in a global high score board.
"All Words Up is our first of many games we are working on for the Apple Watch. We are investing our best teams of designers, usability engineers, and developers to move aggressively into the wearable platform that Apple Watch provides and want to be the leader in this casual gaming space," said Henry Ton, CEO of ArchSquare. "By extending the user's experience of the game through the watch, the player's engagement and enjoyment is different through the unique interface. We are planning many casual games to be available in the Apple Watch App Store on launch day."
* Simple Operation: Single tap input to create words
* Game Center: High scores are submitted to the Game Center's leaderboard
* Downloadable through the Apple App Store
The most challenging part of creating an Apple Watch app is the form factor of the screen and the usability for the users. For this reason, unlike the Boggle game, the game board is 3 x 3 versus the normal 4 x 4 grid size. This allows the users to clearly see the letters as well as tap them with ease. We want the challenge to come from the intrinsic rules of the game and not from the medium that it is played upon.
* iPhone (5 and higher), iPod touch (5 and higher), iPad 1/2/3, and/or Apple Watch
* iOS 6.0 or later
* Universal Application
* 35 MB
All Words Up will be available in the Apple Watch App Store on launch day April 24th. For more information, contact Henry Ton or visit ArchSquare online.
