AppAdvice has teamed up with Long Dog Games in order to offer you a chance to win one of five promo codes for Letricel ($0.99) for iPad. From single and local multiplayer titles like SpellTower to the online turn-based fun of Words With Friends and Hanging With Friends, word games offer both casual and stimulating gameplay. In most of these games, you create words by selecting letters randomly generated and placed in a grid or line-up. It's certainly challenging and enjoyable, but Long Dog Games wanted to add a little more excitement. Along with the difficulty of attempting to construct the longest words possible, Letricel requires you to hunt the tiles down in an action arcade-style manner. Use a finger to drag the character, a disc shaped object with double arrows, to acquire letter tiles and assemble words. You must collect the tiles in the proper order, they can't be re-arranged later, and do so within 60 seconds. Once you've created a word, perform a two finger tap to submit it and reset the timer. If you make a mistake, there is a Release button, however, it releases all gathered letter tiles. An increase of the score multiplier can be achieved by successfully creating words within 30 seconds of a timer reset. Although, "Effect" tiles may appear that will temporarily grant a large score multiplier, freeze the countdown timer, allow effortless letter selection, and more. All of this boils down to working hard to stimulate those brains cells for a few moments or several hours of enjoyment, plus best your friends and other players by climbing the Game Center leaderboards and accomplishing all of the Game Center achievement objectives.
