Word Hex Game App for Android and iPhone

Word Hex Game App for Android and iPhone

It’s an addictive word game that’s dude-tested and chick-approved!

Very Nice Studio is proud to announce a new and improved Android and iOS (iPad/iPhone) version of Word Hex – the fast-paced, highly addictive word search game!

(Parlez-vous français ? Check out the French edition on iOS. Android version coming soon).

V.2 includes the same great features that have made Word Hex FREE one of the most popular Android/iOS word search games: simple “slide-and-play” format, gigantic (aka “Scrabble-sized”) dictionary, three engaging game modes, a wide variety of Game Center achievements and of course, Hexie the Witch – plus several brand-new elements guaranteed to extend your coffee break an extra five minutes and have you muttering words like “onomatopoeia” in your sleep.

According to Krzysztof Hrynkiewicz, Very Nice Studio’s CEO, the decision to upgrade Word Hex FREE was a no-brainer. “S ince its launch in August, we’ve received great feedback to Word Hex from gamers of all ages, colors and creeds; in particular, we’re quite pleased with how well it’s resonated with the ladies. Given the amount of new players we’re acquiring every day, it made perfect sense to roll out some new features and make the playing experience even more enjoyable.”

Most excellent features:

  • Find as many words as you can before time runs out. The longer the word, the more points scored
  • Highlighting a word is a snap – just slide your finger across the letters
  • If the word is valid in Scrabble, it’s valid in Word Hex
  • Three modes: “Arcade” (for serious gamers), “Relax” (for cats) and “Hotseat Multiplayer” (brand new!)
  • Raise your experience level – the more you play, the more you score
  • In-app currency packages (aka golden hexes)
  • Includes a “Hint” button – click to score easy points, but pay with golden hexes
  • High scores recorded daily, weekly, and all-time
  • 34 achievements available in Game Center (iOS only)
  • Upgrade to “Pro Version” and enjoy more time, more golden hexes, no ads, no level cap and a long word guaranteed in every new hex field

What’s New in version 2.0?

  • How ‘bout an awesome “Hotseat Multiplayer” mode! Play with up to three friends or challenge Hexie (our sultry witch mascot) and her pets! Three levels of AI to choose from and lots of opportunity for customization. This mode is available in the “Pro Version” only
  • New bonuses: “Time” and “Golden Hex” bonuses now pop up on the game board. Get ‘em while the gettin’s good!
  • Free version game board redesigned to 16 highly-addictive hexes. Still free, still loads of fun!
  • Various sound and performance enhancements

Wombi Ice CreamSwedish app developer Wombi has released a new kid-friendly application that allows players to build their ideal ice cream sundaes. Designed for ages 4 and up, Wombi Ice Cream allows kids to exercise their culinary creativity without a crazy sugar rush afterwards. This easy-to-use application is available on iPhone, iPad, and iPod and can be purchased in the App Store for $1.99. A free lite version is also be available.

Wombi Ice Cream allows kids ages 4 and up to get creative with their food. The game comes with ample choices of cones, bowls, ice cream flavors, and a slew of toppings. Its variety of options allows a large span of different sundae combinations, and its colorful illustrations and playful gibberish language will keep players engaged.
The game opens up on the side of an ice cream truck with a line of customers – and each of them has a sweet tooth. Each customer requests a special sundae, and the game is designed so the requests are different every time. Next, the player heads to the back of the ice cream truck to concoct the perfect sundae. He or she can choose to stick to the customer’s order or deviate from the directions. Afterwards, players get to see what the customer thinks of their creation.
The game’s layout is bubbly and colorful. Friendly customers pop by in the forms of smiling elephants, pink lions, and more. As for the sundae creation station, the desserts are easy on the eyes with an array of soft colors, detailed drawings of tasty toppings, and playful shapes.
Wombi Ice Cream is child-friendly because it’s fun and simple to use. Sundaes are created simply by clicking and dragging on different bowls, flavors, and toppings. Once the ultimate dessert is completed, the player drags across the screen to return to the customer.
Wombi Ice Cream is also a learning experience. While there is ample room for creativity, it’s also an exercise in following directions. Customers will express their satisfaction or dissatisfaction with the flavors and choices of sundae combinations.
Pricing and Availability: Wombi Ice Cream is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games (Kids) category. A free lite version is also released.
