Spell, Flip, Crush, and Twist words to fit the board in this casual yet challenging word puzzler. Reuse as many letters as you can to earn all 3 stars!
Spell around was inspired by classic word games like "Scrabble" and "Words with Friends" merged with paper-based word-puzzle-book-type games. The goal was to create a single player word-based game with a puzzle book feel to it. It has been in development on and off for approximately 2 years.The Journey
The original concept was formed in summer 2012, and a graphical prototype was created in 2013. In late 2013 during a cab ride through NYC I was convinced by Andrew Eiche that the levels needed to be hand designed. I created a level editor to facilitate this and Andrew began working on the levels. In March of 2013 John Thomas began working on the music for the game. He gave the music a jazzy feel and experimented with progressive tonal sounds throughout the menus. Over this last year I toyed with a few game design ideas and settled on minimal changes to the design, finally ending with version 1.0 released in April 2014!
