You don’t need to have a genius-level IQ to gather that Letris has something to do with Tetris. Although less obvious, that it has something to do with letters may also hit you straightaway. Of course, devoted fans of Letris already know this. To paraphrase what Ivanovich Games, the developer of Letris, says about the game, Letris is the lovechild of Scrabble and Tetris. Either of these two classic games is already enjoyable in its own right, and their combination in Letris seems to make for a doubly enjoyable game.
Letris has proven to be a big hit among players, so big that it has now come to its third iteration. The franchise began with the first Letris, launched in mid-2010, and then it proceeded with Letris 2, launched just last December. And very soon, a new standalone Letris version is set to be released. Nope, it’s not called Letris 3, but Letris Power.
Letris Power preserves the basic falling-letter-blocks gameplay, international language support, and local and online multiplayer modes present in its predecessors, but it adds more elements of fun to the mix. Letris Power makes such powers as ice (freezes the game), fire (burns a row of letters) and time (momentary slow-mo) available to players. It also introduces a different strategic mission to each game. Watch the promotional video for Letris Power below.

Like the first two separate versions of Letris, Letris Power is a universal iOS game. It’s also a free download, with provisions for in-app purchases for unlocking levels and getting more hints. You can download Letris Power in the App Store beginning March 15. It seems Scrabble and Tetris are about to go on an extended honeymoon again.
