Orthografiend: a word game

Contains Ads

Use the power of words to free the robots from the cruel King Orthografiend in the word construction game that rewards creativity and quick thinking!


ENGAGE YOUR MIND
Orthografiend is an addictive twist on word construction games. Use the letters of the puzzle word to build as many new words as you can, but watch out! Word order is critical, because the value of each word depends on how differently it is spelled from the previous word.

Orthografiend pushes your creativity, strategic planning, memory, and vocabulary to the limit. Think quickly but plan ahead. Save key words to play at the opportune moment to earn bonuses, leverage the board's special tiles, maximize your score, and reach the next level. Success brings you tougher boards, harder words, and new special tiles. Get far enough and you'll even face off against the Orthografiend's minions, and finally against the 'Fiend himself. But to get there you'll have to manage your resources carefully or it'll all spin suddenly, horribly out of control!


SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
With four unique difficulty levels and a number of challenging variant games, you're sure to find the fun that fits you best:

Think your vocabulary isn't up to the job? It soon will be! Start with the easiest difficulty and the game will help you discover new words and give you hints when you're stuck. Even so it's no cakewalk and you'll find plenty of challenges.

Find the regular game too stressful? Just need some time to think? Like cats? The Timeless challenge was made for you! Sure the board layouts are a bit tougher, but you can play at your own pace without the tick-tick-tick of the clock wreaking havoc with your blood pressure.

Or maybe you read dictionaries for fun and all your friends are philologists? Yes? Then you're in luck, because it takes a special kind of genius to beat the game's hardest difficulty, and those robots need your help! Oh, yes, it IS beatable, but you'll have to work for it. Harder puzzle words. Fewer, more obscure solutions. Less time on the clock. Less help. And unlike other difficulty settings, when you lose, you really lose: continuing your game is not allowed.


OH, AND YOU CAN PLAY WITH FRIENDS, TOO
Want to pit your skills against another player? Challenge your friends or anonymous strangers in epic multiplayer showdowns. You can be smart AND sneaky with new multiplayer-only tiles that will frustrate your opponents and deny them critical resources.

Don't feel like dealing with people today? Worried you'll embarrass yourself? Hone your multiplayer skills against 28 AI personalities. Or, if you prefer some passive in your aggressive, you can obsessively compare your leaderboard scores and achievement progress with your friends instead.


HAVE FUN. LEARN STUFF.
Gape with amazement as a robot ally lays down a shockingly good word. Beat a level, learn something cool about the weirdly wonderful English language. Build your vocabulary with the Word of the Day puzzle. (Play in the morning and spend the day casually slipping the day's word into conversation: "Really, Bob, I don't see why you're being so pervicacious about this.")


INCREDIBLE VARIETY
Hundreds of thousands of unique levels, each with billions of solutions. Dozens of special tiles to spice it up and shift the tactical possibilities. Scads of special bonuses and achievements to master. Four difficulty settings. Variant rules. Multiplayer. Achievements. Bonus rounds. Word of the Day puzzles. Boatloads of fun squeezed into one little app!


A CHARMING ODE TO THE POWER OF LANGUAGE
The robot miners of Rhetorica have become self-aware through exposure to the enchanted rhetoric ore they mine for cruel King William, the Orthografiend. Aid them in their fight for fair treatment, defeat the king and his minions, and uncover the startling secret of the 'Fiend's ultimate fate.

Spell your way to a revolution in the ultimate test of orthographic acumen! Download 'Fiend today—cute green robots are counting on you!
