A fast-paced word game.

What’s New

Version 1.0.2

Changes for v1.0.2 (build 11) of Up Spell.

Additions to the lexicon sent in from players.

Happy Up Spelling!

It’s really a wonderfully addicting app. I have two suggestions for the developer (and these really are nits I’m picking):
1. It isn’t obvious or apparent when you are getting a double score for a word; maybe the background of the “board” could change color to denote this?
2. The high score isn’t shown anywhere, except when you get a score “close” to it.

Developer Response ,

Your high score is shown in Extras > Share. This might not be the most obvious place, but it does make it convenient for boasting to friends.

Maybe I'll add a more complete stats page in the future.

The app is pretty bare bones and should allow one to review the very fast-paced game. It would be nice to be able to review the letters and the words formed from them after the fact. It would also be nice to be able to replay a game both before and after reviewing. It would also be nice to be able to play without a clock. And it would be nice to be able to see one’s scores, not merely the top score. I hope to see these areas improved in future updates, but encourage you to get the game as it is—it’s addicting.

It’s ok. Not worth the $$.

It would be a great free app. With interstitial ads. But paying $2 for this simple app was too much. My main complaints:

1. You can only play in horizontal mode
2. You can not play against strangers or a leaderboard or anything. You either have to invite your friends or just try and beat your high score (which should be displayed along with current score after every game)
3. When you put up letters that don’t make a word you have to hit the down arrow to clear them. The down arrow is placed in an inconvenient spot and if you hit it twice fast because you’re speeding, it trashes your letters. Slowly.
