App Description

"Grabl made me do something that hasn’t happened in a while. I played until my iPhone 'died,' then I charged it up and drained it again." -

"Addictive? For someone who loves playing with words, yes." -

"Grabl resembles scrabble, but it's for one player, and it's great. The interface is finely tuned to take advantage of the iPhone platform, and the game play is fun." -

Grabl is a fast-paced, addicting, word building game for iPhone and iPod Touch!

Score points by dragging the letter tiles from the bottom of the screen onto the gridded board to make words that connect to each other. Longer words earn more points!

Here's how to play:

You start out with a blank grid on the top half of the screen and 14 tiles in your "hand" at the bottom of the screen. Drag the tiles onto the grid to spell words. When you spell a valid word, it will be highlighted in yellow. Spelling words earns you points and more tiles (press the "more please" button to get your earned tiles). Longer words are worth more points! When your time runs out at the end of a round, any unused tiles count against your score.

Grabl has 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, and 5:00 game modes as well as a special mode called "frenzy!" where you start out with only 30 seconds on the clock and earn more time as you spell words.
