Help the adorable grim reapers Grimm and Rose defeat monsters, ghosts, evil bunnies and more using the power of words!

Letter Quest is a turn-based RPG where players attack monsters by spelling words. But be careful since the monsters fight back by creating different letter tiles such as poison, plague, stone, and whirlwind, or steal your health, heal themselves, use critical attacks, and much, much more!


● 40 stages, with 4 unique ways to play each one
● Five separate areas, each with unique art and music tracks
● Tons of upgrades, books, potions, special items and weapons to help you on your journey
● Over 30 monsters to fight
● Boss monsters with unique abilities
● 70 quests to complete
● Leaderboards - compete with your friends
● 50 Game Center achievements

Finding the game too difficult? Make sure to check out the upgrades store, especially the first 3 upgrade types - they increase your max health, increase the damage you do by spelling words, and decrease the amount of damage you take from monsters. Some players have been saying the game is too hard by around stage 10-15, but hadn't purchased a single upgrade! So please visit the upgrades shop every once in a while to give Grimm and Rose a fighting chance!

This game was much cuter than I expected. I generally hate "Freemium" games but this one got it right.

When you fail a level, you just retry it-- there's no wait period to recharge or generate game currency to restart the level. You can repeat it over and over, and only spend whatever power ups you want at each round.

I got pretty far along without paying any money, but it was just so darn cute, and really fun, I paid for the gem doubler, which ended up leveling up my little reaper really quickly, and the rest of the game flew by.

I only wish there were more levels! I can't believe how quick I flew through the game, but actually spent a lot of time playing while under the weather, and it was worth every penny.

I want to delete the game now to free up space but I'm going to hang onto it for a bit first and make sure no updates are coming along. (Hint, hint, please.)

Excellent Word/RPG

I found this little game to be a ton of fun. After trying it out for a bit I did pay the couple bucks for the premium version. Totally worth it, even for the ad removal, plus you get extra content. I have not found it to be hard to earn gems enough to buy items without spending further money, but I suspect that may also depend on how good you are at spelling/vocabulary and utilizing bonuses. For me, a great find. Love it!

The Only Game I Keep Coming Back To

Updated Nov 2018: STILL LOVE THIS GAME!

Delightful game. I played a while back and ran out of levels. They added some new levels and the 4th star and I'm back. I'm just playing slowly because I will be sad when I complete the new challenges.

Clean very pleasant graphics. So bright. And not too busy. Not too many special effects. Just an enjoyable and fun game. Great statistics too. Who knew I like 5 letter words that do NOT include the letter J.. !?
