Hunt for words hidden among the petals of the Smartichoke!

The goal in Smartichoke is to find words that are at least four letters in length in the petals available. You can select letters from any petal, but connected letters help you earn bonuses and disconnected letters lead to penalties!


- Penalty and bonus petals add strategy to word selection.

- Earn bonus points for spelling longer words, repeat streaks, target words, and clearing as many petals as possible.

- Rotate the Smartichoke at any time. (Seeing the letters from different angles can help with spotting words.)

- Statistics like highest score, level, longest word, highest scoring word, and repeat streak are automatically saved. Statistics can also be synced with GameCenter or the Smartichoke Leaderboards.

- Swaps are earned (or can be purchased) to replace any letter with new, randomly chosen letters.

- Your game is automatically saved to continue playing later.

Smartichoke is free to play, but it's limited to words that are less than nine letters in length (about 54,000 words). You can unlock Smartichoke for 99 cents (USD), which let's you submit any of the 112,000+ words available! (Fun fact: the longest word is 45 letters long.)

What’s New

Version 1.1.5

- A new Word of the Day feature has been added to the target word list. The Word of the Day works just like a target word, except it earns TRIPLE the points! (Word of the Day can be disabled in Settings.)

- Updates to the manual and word list.

Love it

Really nice word game. Different and challenging. I like that you can leave your game and come back to it later.

Awesome fun!

A cool word game that is well designed and will have you thinking! I kept playing to try and beat everyone else's score--and I did! Go me! Go Smartichoke!

This is such a fun concept for a word game! Really simple to play, but also unique and becomes addicting fast!
