Word games are all the rage these days in the App Store, and SEGA is looking to join in the fun with the introduction of Spellwood.

The app brings a magical twist for word wizards. Spellwood puts players in a world where wizards use words to cast their spells.

In the single-player mode, each gamer can battle with more than 90 fun adversaries in six towers. Each tower provides a new challenge with magical spells to change letters, restore health, and change the size of the board-playing area.

And if you want to play with friends and family, users can connect with Game Center or Facebook, with as many as 50 opponents.

To appeal to all ages, Spellwood features a variety of different difficulty levels and game-play modes.

Spellwood is a universal app designed for both the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. It can be downloaded in the App Store for $1.99. It is optimized for the larger screen of the iPhone 5 and fifth-generation iPod touch.

After more than a few Letterpress beat downs by my AppAdvice colleagues, I’ve sworn off word games. But Spellwood looks interesting, and I’m looking forward to getting to try it out soon. Maybe I can actually win a word game for once.
