MAG Interactive is giving Ruzzle a great big birthday update. The app is a free to play word puzzle game that lets players challenege their friends to find as many words as possible from a set number of letters in two minutes.
The new update comes with the introduction of levels. You ‘ll be able to set new personal records and unlock features as you beat each level. The app will also allow you to customize your avatar now and use widgets that will give you additional statistics regarding a user’s playing history and personal progress.
Ruzzle 2.0 will also now hold tournaments! You’ll face off against 19 other players in a spelling championship where you can win in-game coins.
Help Ruzzle celebrate its birthday by downloading it for free on the App Store.
The original Ruzzle was quite the cool little multiplayer word puzzle game. So it stands to reason that a follow-up would be on the way. Hence Ruzzle Adventure: a solo rendition of the familiar Ruzzle formula, with a few changes of course.
Ruzzle Adventure spreads wordly challenges across 100 levels (probably double that once it launches in the US), and lets you see your friends’ progress as you move through the map. Gameplay is also a little more varied this time around, with multiple game modes involving trying to clear special blocks with a limited number of turns, racing against rising water, or just trying to make a lot of words.
At the moment Ruzzle Adventure isn’t available in the States, but once it is it’ll be free to play and universal.
Each and every week, we take a look at the top twenty apps as recommended on Powerslyde. Once installed on your iOS device, Powerslyde detects the apps you have installed, then recommends apps you may like and may not be aware of. Think of it as a way to get App recommendations from somewhere other than the App Store itself.
Looks like casual games made a strong showing this week, with Rovio’s Amazing Alex possibly returning due to interest in the two new Rovio Stars games that have recently hit the App Store: Ice Breaker and Tiny Thief. Ruzzle made an impression on reviewer Ruari O’Gallchoir, who says, “Ruzzle has several tricks up its sleeve to differentiate itself from it’s more established competitors.” Two of the five are lesser-known games that follow fairly standard formulas: Chasing Yello is an endless runner, and Flow Free is a color-matching game. As for Plumber Crack, we’ll leave that one up to your imagination. If you’re wondering if someone could build a game around that particular anatomical gem, it seems like they can and did.
