SEVEN² is recruiting beta testers (Finished)

SEVEN² (Seven Squared) is another brain teaser. This word puzzler has a unique interface in a minimalist style, and is built to satisfy the players hunger for real challenges.

Unlike other popular word games which offer diverse gameplay styles, SEVEN² only concentrate on just one gameplay – the puzzle mode. On a board of 7² (or 49) tiles, you only need to survive for 7² (or 49) rounds. There is NO time limit. You can take as much time as you want to plan your next step.

Does it sound too easy? Think twice! You need to be careful in spelling every word, turning the difficult letters to be your advantage, and manipulating the timing of the falling letters to balance risk and reward.

Although there is a lot of polishing work ahead, the game is almost finished. If you are interesting in joining the beta test program of this game, please submit your email using the form below. The invitations would be sent shortly via TestFlight when it’s ready. (Only iOS6 devices are supported right now)
