Hey all, Please check out my new game, Three Words.


Wouldn't mind a review as well if possible :) Thanks!

Constructive criticisms welcome!! Currently 143 levels



This game is pretty simple.

The objective is to find three words with the letters given to you.

Obviously, all letters must be used and the number of letters in each word is given to you by the number of lighter boxes.

The darker boxes therefore, mean that those boxes do not need to be filled. Confused? Hopefully these screens will help you out!!

This game is optimised for iPhone 5. Admittedly, doesn't look as appealing on iPhone 4's or iPads, but still playable.
I also found a bug but not sure what triggers it. If anyone has problems with letters, either restart the app or return all the letters from the words (i have a rule that resets all the letters if there is no letter in any of the words.) Hopefully i can find where this bug is!!

    Thanks !

    Really satisfied with how it looks.

    200 downloads yesterday, was hoping for more but quite happy.

    Just wondering, how do people find your app once its off the "new" page.

    Also, how do people find apps that recently had a price drop?
    in my experiences, when i change my apps from $1 to free, there is a download hike. Just wondering how they find it!

    thanks :)

    Cool! Can you use each letter only once or multiple times?

    Love it!

    I've played it a bunch and have run into that glitch where the letter goes missing. Not sure why, but it's a real pain.

    I'd also argue that none of the instructions in the "settings" section need to be mentioned. The gameplay is incredibly clear and intuitive. IF you're going to show those instructions, I recommend increasing the opacity of the overlay on top of the background gameplay quite a bit. Right now, it's very difficult to read.

    Again - awesome game!

    Hey awesome feedback!
    I will definetly change the "settings" page. Also missing an option to turn sound off.

    • I always knew I had that missing letter problem. I thought I'd had fixed it when I released it because I went two hours without finding the glitch. I will definetely try find a solution

    In the mean time, I have a fallback solution which is, when the three words have no letters in it, the letters down the bottom reset so the letters come back. Otherwise restarting the app is also a solution. But thanks again.
