Scrollword for iPad


Scrollword is a game that I made at Topformats for Keesing/Denksport. It is a re-interpretation of a classic crossword puzzle, instead of getting a hint as to what word needs to be where you’re given the characters that can be in those places. By scrolling through the characters you need to make up the words to finish the game, once you’ve found a word the characters get turned blue and they’re locked in place to prevent you from accidentally changing them.

The easy levels only have two different characters per tile but the harder levels can have up to 5 different characters per tile! In order to help the player a bit there are also some green tiles which set the tile at that location to the right character.

The game itself was made in Cocos2D and also supports in-app purchases for new levels, both Cocos2D and the in-app purchase system were new to me at the time so it was a nice learning experience.

If you want to play the game you can find it on the app-store
