We have some great news now for all you word-based puzzle game fans out there, as we’ve just heard about a brand new word game that is coming to both the iOS and Android platforms. The game we are talking about is the Feel Every Yummy-developed WordFighter.
However, according to Jared Nelson over on the toucharcade.com website, WordFighter is no ordinary word-based puzzle game, as it has an added fighting element to it. Players will have to “fight” each other through 3 times rounds, by creating different words from a 5 x 5 grid of letters.
Every letter has a point value to it, and the total value of the players’ created words determines the damage that is handed to their opponent. As players create more and more words, they will earn bonuses that they can use. The bonuses do vary depending on which character you choose.
The special bonuses help players by either giving them increased damage, or making things a little bit harder for their opponents by getting them to spell words backwards or mixing up their game board. The game should be available as local or online multiplayer, or same device multiplayer on the iPad.
The Android version of WordFighter will eventually enable cross-platform play between iOS and Android users. Although we don’t know a specific release date, we know that it should arrive sometime this summer. You can view a video for the upcoming game below this post.
