Promotion (for whoever figures it out)
Drag your finger in any direction to spell as many words as you can before time runs out. Finding words adds time to the timer and keeps your game going. If you complete the six goals, you'll advance to the next tier where you'll find six more challenging goals to conquer. Can you find the TOP WORD, which is the longest word in the puzzle? If so, you'll be rewarded. Find one of the top-ten words and you'll earn a special "Chicka-Pah".
"Guys - our family has all been playing this game for about a month and there is no sign of letting up. Very addictive! "

"I am seriously addicted to this game!! It's like scrabble mixed with a word search!!! I was up until 1am playing in bed!!! I feel like it's making me smarter!!!!! I'm learning so many new words!!!! I love Top Word!!!!"
How to play:
The timer is increased slightly when you spell words correctly and it fills up completely when you find 25%, 50% or 75% of the words in the puzzle or when you find the TOP WORD. Words comprised of one or two letters don't count.
The player begins on Tier 1. Each tier has six goals. When all six goals have been met, you can advance to the next tier with six more challenging goals. On the main menu, tap on the goal tiles for more information about each goal. Speaking of the tiles on the main menu, there may be a secret hidden in them. Pay attention to the sound they make.
Tap the commence button to start a new game.
The game is over when time runs out. All words in the puzzle will be revealed and are color coded as follows:
red = missed word
green = found new word (first time)
white = found word that you found previously in another puzzle
yellow = hint word missed
If you're curious about the meaning of a word, you can tap on any word to bring up a dictionary with the word's definition.
Fixed a bug where user couldn't earn chicka-pahs in games where the timer was disabled.
Removed Flurry analytics to protect user's privacy.
Ratings and Reviews
*AWESOME GUITAR RIFF* *POW*
Wow! Awesome explosion effects! Love the font on the tiles! Gameplay's challengin'! Keep the fun goin'! I keep streaking those Chicka-pahs! No, seriously, great game. The guitar solos are an interesting *and welcome* motif. Just makes finding that one word ALL the more satisfying. YES! Rock and Roll!
Though, I've found a few bugs. For one, after the 1st game on the iPad version, the white borders on the tiles are thicker. Also, I bought the “Letter Sound” pack. It was quirky and kinda funny…but I can't turn them off. The settings SAY they're off, but they're on in-game. Can you please fix these? Amazing otherwise.
Developer Response ,
Glad to hear you’re enjoying the game!
Still addictive and one of my favorite games!
I play on my IPad. Great game for kids and adults. I am addicted. I love that there are no annoying ads and I don't need good eye-hand skill to play. Lol. Chickapahs are fun and I like that it keeps track of the words you find and that you learn new words as you go.
Lots of fun!
Fresh, fast paced (and addictive!) Word Game
Topword is a compellingly simple word game that will get you hooked and keep you coming back for more...and more...and more.
The game presents you with a fixed set of letters that you can connect into words. It is surprising how many words can be found in a single game, and even more how easy it is to overlook words. You are in a race against the clock to find as many as you can, and you earn more time based on the length of words you find.
With Game Center, you can challenge your friends to matches. The game even has its own currency, called Chicka pahs (you have to play it to understand it ), that you can wager in matches against friends.
This game is a great diversion at the end of the day, or a great way to completely shift gears during a busy work day. It's so absorbing it takes your mind off of whatever project has your attention.
Beyond entertainment, it will also enhance your vocabulary. The game allows you to look up definitions for words you find, or more likely, words you miss, after the game is over.
Words with Friends better watch out. Such a fresh, simple but absorbing word game that draws you in like Topword does is destined for greatness. I can't get enough.
