Today, we’re thrilled to share the news that Electronic Arts (EA) has developed their latest Word Smack game with (drum roll please!), everyone’s favorite cross-platform development platform. That’s right, one of the world’s largest game publishers has incorporated Corona into their arsenal, to develop first-class mobile content.
The Corona team loves a good guessing game, and EA’s Word Smack takes the cake. A mashup of two popular board games, Mastermind and Scrabble, Word Smack is a clever 2-player game that challenges players to guess a 5-letter word in 3 rounds. To get you started, the game provides letters on a board, and challenges you to fill in the remaining letter slots.
Don’t be fooled – this game is tough! Thankfully, Word Smack gives you a nudge in the right direction, providing a heads up when you pick the right letter but place it in the wrong slot, among other hints. The Facebook integration allows for friendly competition among friends, or gives you the option to play against a random opponent. Ultimately, your goal is to guess words faster than your rival.
For word game junkies, there’s an option to purchase power-ups that help you along the way. Power-ups can provide word synonyms, reveal additional letters, or knock out unplayable letters.
Word Smack launched just today – snag it for free on the App Store!
