Nicely done! I really enjoy this concept, and the presentation is simple and elegant.  I think I might need an Easy Mode though; the timer is a bit too fast for me, even at the beginning.  Or how about, in addition to Time Attack (let's call it), there could be a Strategy mode in which new rows are added based on the number of words you've spelled rather than time taken.  That would be a very different style, encouraging players to take their time and spell more complex words.

Fun. Reminds me of bookworm, which I played constantly as a kid, except with the Tetris element of getting rid of blocks and the screen filling up as you play. It seems like the best words last game function doesn't always work properly for me? I'm on windows. The all time best words seem correct. Here is a screenshot from a game I got zero points in, so it couldn't have those words as best words. Unless I am misinterpreting what last game best words means.


I will have to check to see that it's working correct, thanks for pointing this out/

Is there a way to play with the keyboard instead of mouse?

Unfortunately there isn't. Are you not able to play with a mouse or just prefer a keyboard?

Nice little word game. Picked it up in the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, and so far it's one of my favourites there. The game clearly doesn't like me, though, judging by the number of times I get a Q with a U nowhere near it! :D

Fun game. Reminds me of Spell Tower, but real-time instead of turn-based.

This is a fun twist on an old favourite that makes you feel smart  even when you're wasting time playing games.
