Awesome!
I've downloaded it and gave it a go. The graphics are beautiful! I find the pace of the game pretty slow, especially when I press the buttons, but the transitions for the buttons, etc, are great!
Just like some others, I too didn't pay much attention to the instructions, hence I found myself randomly trying to find words and even longer than 3 letter words which didn't get any points (me and my urge to instantly delve into the gameplay instead of reading). The characters can be quite misleading. For the tutorial, I didn't notice that I had to swipe for the word WIN.

Overall, the only problem I had was with the fonts. But still, a great release!

Yup! I tried that already. I like the fact that it gets more challenging as the player progresses and also the help system when the player can't find the word. The different modes are wonderful. Looking forward to the multiplayer function!

I tried this game, and it was pretty fun: although I have to say, the fact that there were many possible words but only one correct answer seemed unusual to me. The graphics etc. look really great though, and the tutorial that you've added was really clear.

That is exactly the challenge haha...

Hey guys, here is a final update on the game. I decided to drop the project after this mayor update which means that there will no longer be a multiplayer function. I have my reasons for this, but the most important one is the fact that this was my first "on my own" project, and as we all know, the first one will never be a succes hehe...

Anyway, you can check out the final version on the play-store and app-store under the name Intellection. Maybe I will put the source code up for sale at some point, but for now you can just enjoy the single player modes!

Sad to hear you won't be developing this further. But on the other hand it's a good decision to spend your time better if you can't see a future for this project.
Well, good luck on the next one then!

The main problem lies with the multiplayer part of it. it needs a non existing mechanic. I have been working with MdotEdot on some other multiplayer stuff, but this is not getting close to that, and will probably not be so anytime soon. Perhaps when the mechanics are there, I might consider adding the multiplayer part.

What exactly were you looking for with multiplayer?
