Havos Updated Word Fit Puzzle Game Offers Endless Challenge

A fun, new mind-bending word game from Havos called Word Fit Puzzle looks just like a normal crossword puzzle, but there are no clues except for a single letter placed appropriately on the grid at the beginning of the game. At first, the challenge appears insurmountable, but as the player progresses, the fun begins as each word is dragged into place and satisfyingly snaps into position.

The free app, now available on the iTunes Store, is one of only a very few word fill-in apps on the market, and boasts very flexible settings so each player can tune the game to their specific skill level and device. The fun is endless, as each new game is auto-generated, using a database of 65,000 words. Other similar games only offer a limited set of pre-written games. There is even a “Definition” button for the curious at heart. Although it is not necessary to know the meaning of each word, players can simply click “Definition” to learn the meaning of any given word on the screen. In addition to offering multiple levels of difficulty, the interface allows for play in both portrait and landscape mode just by rotating the device.

“The play can go on for hours on end,” according to Peter lfe, Co-Founder of Havos. “While it’s easy to get through a game on the ‘Easy’ setting in a few minutes, just try one set on ‘Wizard.’ And to make it an even bigger challenge, expand the size of the grid to up to 20 by 20 rows. You can even adjust the settings for a smaller maximum word length, or set the game to play in any one of 23 different languages.”

“We designed this game to offer hours of challenging fun in endless combinations,” said Peter. “We have gone beyond what any other word-fill games deliver with our wide range of options and endless possibilities. But don’t worry, if the difficulty level gets to be too much, users can always make use of the helpful aids we’ve included.”

In addition to being downloadable onto a mobile device, the game can also now be played in a web browser. Havos is no stranger to the App Store, and offers a strong selection of 21 very well-received and popular word games and apps.

Features:
* Specify number of columns and rows, to create a puzzle up to 20 x 20, with non-square grids an option
* Adjust difficulty level and the minimum and maximum word count
* Available in 23 different languages
* Endless number of games
* Definitions of words available online

Kelp Mobil released Buddys Garage 2.0 for iPhone

Kelp Mobil, a German mobile app developer, today announced the release of Buddy’s Garage 2.0, which is a major update of its trump cards game platform for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Buddy’s Garage 2.0 comes with a bunch of enhancements. Among other, full Game Center connectivity, which enables users to play world-wide over the net, a revamped Bluetooth mode, an in-app store that hosts different card decks that all can be played within the same app. The new feature set rounds up Buddy’s Garage as a platform for hosting trump cards games.

Games running on Apple’s Game Center provide a nice multiplayer experience. Matchmaking with friends becomes a matter of just two clicks. Its turn-based gaming mode provides an intuitive user experience, whether played as single- or multi-user game. Games may be paused and continued at any time, a feature single players might enjoy even after device reboot.

Every card deck has its own Game Center leaderboard attached, which sums up all of a user score points acquired over time. The more cards user win, the higher they move up in the leaderboards. Game Center chat is supported to closely connect peers whilst gaming.

Using Bluetooth enables players to connect independently from any Wi-Fi connection, which is often not available or stable enough, e.g, during train rides. The more, most people are careful with online times while abroad – therefore, nearfield communication could be of choice. And, it comes at no cost. This includes devices like the iPod which offers on-board Bluetooth capabilities.

Easy-to-use UI:

It comes with elaborate animations, backed by sound effects, so users are not forced to focus the screen any time they play. Game sounds may be switched off without affecting other personal device-specific audio preferences.

Its infinitely adjustable player strength is a unique feature amongst card game apps presently on the market. While playing versus the iPhone, users may fine-tune their personal player strength from “Beginner” throughout to “Formula-1-Champ”. The higher the level they pick, the stronger the opponent’s values are selected. This setting can also be changed during running games.

Trump cards’ platform:
The built-in card deck selector, which can hold an arbitrary number of card sets, now comes with 3 different games, two of them currently available for only $0.99 USD (.79 Euro). Having unlocked a card deck at the in-app store, the selected game can immediately be started. Should a player be invited to a game that isn’t yet unlocked on his device, Buddy’s Garage will guide him to the in-app store, before the game can continue.

Reference to classic cars:
Buddy’s Garage is not only a feature-rich trump cards game, but also offers in-depth information about the cars, including market prices, production counts and gas consumption values. It comes with a browser through all cards, which turns it into a pocket reference of classics cars.
