While this word puzzle is safe for all ages, it's not the kind of thing that would appeal to young gamers...or old ones who are bad spellers. Like the original SpellTower, SpellTower+ is like those puzzles where you have to find words on a page full of letters. Except that when you find a word, it removes those letters, and sometimes others around it. You can also go diagonal, even if it means crossing streams. Sometimes, you may have to make words with a certain number of letters. For example, if you have a "L" with a "5" on it, you can't spell "late" but you can spell "later" or "slate." The free version of this game also has three somewhat varied modes: "Puzzle," which is the basic game, " Tower," which adds a row of letters at the bottom when you find a word, and ends the game when the upper-most letter hits the top row, and "Rush," which also ends when the upper-most letter gets too high, but instead adds rows of letters over time.
Regardless of which you play, though, this is a very entertaining and challenging word puzzle game. So much so, in fact, that you might never felt the need to spend $4.99 to get the other five modes included in the paid version of the game. In fact, the only negative thing that can be said about this word puzzle game, and it's barely a thing, is that this is decidedly not for really little kids. And not just because you can spell the word "ass" if those letters come together. No, it's because this may prove to be too frustrating for kids, especially if they play "Rush" mode. But if you already know your ABCs, and have played your fair share of word puzzle games, you'll get a K-I-C-K out of SpellTower+.
