Blockdot Releases“Halloween Chicktionary” for the iPhone


September 22, 2009 (Dallas, TX)– Start your Halloween with a frightfully fun word game! Dallas-based Blockdot has released Halloween Chicktionary for the iPhone and iPod touch. Halloween Chicktionary puts a spooky spin on one of the most popular word games on the internet, Chicktionary.

In Halloween Chicktionary, each trick-or-treating hen bears a letter. Your goal is to unscramble the letters and create as many words as possible. Tap the chickens and spell out a word, then watch as the word appears below them. The more words you create, the more points you earn!

Besides the egg-citing game play, Halloween Chicktionary has cool features that give it“haunting” depth, making it one of the most“scarily” engaging games on the iPhone:

• The game environment lets loose all the trappings of Halloween, including rustling leaves, thick fog, and eerie sounds!

• Feeling grim about your next move? Shake your iPhone to shuffle the chickens and get a new look at your word options.

• 300 levels of wickedly fun puzzles.

• Earn Eggchievements for crazy stuff or just playing the game like a pro.

• Other features include being able to save the game, local&worldwide scoreboards, hidden Easter eggs, game statistics— and more!

You can purchase the full version of Halloween Chicktionary for only $1.99– or download a free“Lite” version featuring 12 puzzles– by visiting the iTunes Halloween Chicktionary homepage at http://blockdot.com/iPhone/halloweenchicktionary.aspx.
