About this game

From the creator of SpellTower, comes a new and completely original word game!
Anagrams meets Word Search, with a sprinkle of Crosswords.

Typeshift is the modern anagram puzzle; re-imagined from the ground up, combining wordplay, modern game design, and a mobile-first approach.

In most anagram games, you search for new combinations within a single word, but in Typeshift, you search within three to five words stacked & scrambled up together.

Shift columns of letters up and down as you try to spell words in the center row. Play continues until you have used all letters in a puzzle at least once.

Special Clue Puzzles combine Crosswords with Anagrams as you match clever clues provided by Typeshift's various puzzle authors.

- Daily Word Game Play with Global Leaderboards -

Typeshift features a free daily challenge with global leaderboards. The easiest challenge for the week appears on Monday, and progressively more challenging puzzles build throughout the week.

------A WORD FROM THE DEVELOPER

Typeshift continues my quest to re-imagine classic newspaper games in the digital era.
Where SpellTower tackled word search and Really Bad Chess handled chess puzzles, Typeshift re-examines Anagrams and Crosswords.

Typeshift has been a joy to develop, and I hope you have as much fun playing it as I had making it.
As always, thanks so much for your support!

It's fun so far, but the app doesn't make proper use of all its white space. The navigation is crammed into a sliver at the bottom of the screen, which is annoying to reach constantly. It also looks a bit cut off so I can see why other phones are having trouble. On galaxy s10 I believe I can see the whole thing, but there is aot of extra white space at the top and bottom of the screen (above the navigation) that is not being used and should be.

Very fun, but doesn't show up correctly on Pixel 4. There is a black bar at the bottom of the screen where I assume ads are supposed to be, but I'm not seeing them (Update: even after purchasing a pack, the black bar is still present at the bottom). Along with this, the content of the app flows behind the black bar, so I can't see the bottom of the screen. Becomes a problem once you get to the puzzles with a lot of prompts as you can't see the last prompt.

Good game, great for quick little puzzles when you want something light weight and enjoyable. Don't mind buying a pack or two to pay for the game & get rid of the ads. But at $1-2 per set of puzzles gets expensive quick after the first couple packs. I'd rather pay like $5 for the game and get most of the $1 packs free. Or provide more bundles in the $2 range? Or just make the packs a bit cheaper overall. Adding up all the packs comes to over $35, which is more than a lot of PC games cost.
