"A unique treat among the sea of word games" --

"This easy-to-use and highly addictive word game is a must have! --

"Finally! For the avid word connoisseur - iVolution. Not your average Ho-Hum word game!" -- PaperDesk tweet

From the husband and wife team that created “Chain of Thought” and “RhymieStymie” comes “iVolution – the evolving word game!”

iVolution is easy to pick up but hard to put down.

You start with a 2 letter word seed like “AN” and use it to build a word like “FANTASTIC.” Then you select 2 letters from your word, and those letters become the next word seed for your opponent.

The words keep evolving, back and forth, a piece of your word becoming part of your opponent's word, then a piece of their word becoming part of your next word.

iVolution is incredibly simple yet incredibly addicting. You can play solo against computer opponents or challenge your friends to a word showdown with the online play modes! So what are you waiting for? It's time to join the revolution in word evolution!

*7 different power-ups

*2 single player modes

*2 "Pass ‘n Play" modes

*2 turn-based multiplayer online modes so you can challenge your friends anywhere, anytime!

*Tons of achievements to earn

*Multiple leaderboards so you can compare your scores with the world

*Help videos to get you quickly playing like a pro

We really hope you enjoy our new game. We'd love to hear from you. So please don't hesitate to contact us.

Thanks and best wishes,
Jay & Julia

This app is definitely better than Chain of Thought. For wordies and writers like myself, it is a must have. I love how they offer dictionary definitions as well. However, it does need to be updated, as it does not accept a number of words. But overall I think this could become the new Words with Friends :)

I LOVE iVolution!!!

iVolution is one of my very favorite games of all-time! It is challenging, stretches a person's vocabulary, and is a great way to spend a few moments (or hours if you really get carried away!).
Not only is it a fantastic game, there are so many options available. You really can customize it to be just the way you like it.
I am so happy that Jay, Julia and Daniel Bacal decided to update this incredible game so it can be played on the newer versions of Apple software. I feel I’ve been granted a new lease on life. That’s true, as far as playing this terrific game is concerned.
If you like word games of any kind, I strongly encourage you to try iVolution. I can’t imagine a word nerd like me not loving this game!

Thank You For Updating

Apple forced me to stop playing this game because it hadn’t been updated in a while. So thankful you guys came through for us fans. This is a must have game if you’re the type of person that love exercising you brain muscles.
