99Games releases an update to its popular iPhone word game, WordsWorth

A lot more zing added to this bestselling game to make it pleasing to the eyes

New Udupi, India, Dec 20, 2009: 99Games, leading developer and publisher of iPhone and iPod touch games, today announced the update of its hugely popular word game, WordsWorth. The game had received rave reviews from word-game fanatics all over the world after its release last year. It was the top-selling word game and also got featured in the‘What’s Hot’ section across several App Stores.

WordsWorth involves linking letters that are arranged in a honeycomb structure to form words. The longer the word, the more points a player obtains. The game offers a lot of customization in terms of the grid size and word lists that a player can choose from. Players also have an option of shuffling the board to get new letters. WordsWorth v2.0 offers a completely revamped user interface with a 3D feel to the letters.

“Although WordsWorth is an excellent game in terms of quality, it had a simpler user interface in comparison to other similar word games. With this update, all that has changed”, said Anila Andrade of 99Games.“With the addition of vibrant colors, WordsWorth will now seem like a new game altogether”, she added.

In the new update, the game has a couple of new features like viewing the words created anytime in landscape mode and looking up meaning of the words formed from three different sources. For players who would like to display their high scores, the game has a Facebook and Twitter connect feature. The company plans to release an update with additional features in the coming weeks.

The game is now available on the App Store for $ 1.99.
