What’s New

Version 1.01

Winter is coming! Or summer. Anyhow, it's update time! We're so excited that we just can't even.

- Earn achievements multiple times because achievement banners are fun!
- Fixed a few ugly UI bugs in iOS 8.3. Coincidentally, ugly UI bugs are not fun.
- Did you know that our top played word so far is EQUATION? No? Now you know.
- The top make-believe word is QUARTED. Our guess as to what it might mean... to make something a quart? Not sure. We'll get back to you. Also, FRIDAY is a proper noun for those who keep trying to play it.

SparkWord was born and raised in Seattle by a husband and wife team. If you love it, won't you please be kind and write us a review or share it?

Fun Game!

I like the fact that I can have multiple games going at once, and that when it's my turn I can take a look at the board and decide to come back later if I want to give it more thought. I know the developer, and he did a bang-up job on this!

An amazingly fun game

This word game matches you against your opponent as you create words from the board. Use letters that you opponent used and you take points from them. Use new letters and you earn points. Tiles explode after each turn. This is my newest addiction!!

I hate most word games.

…but not this one!

And this is going to sound bad, but the creator of this game is a personal friend of mine. When he initially told me that he was making a game, I honestly thought to myself “how good could it really be?”. Kind of a dick thing to think, but seriously, how often does a really good game come along? I guess I should have had more faith in my friend, but, them’s the breaks.

Anywho, the game really is amazingly fun and addictive. I generally don’t like games like this, so I was surprised when I found myself coming back to it again and again. It’s easy to play and a heck of a lot of fun when you create a really long word.
