Watch out! Letters are falling from the sky! AlphaDrop is a word game with all the options you're looking for whether it's a fast-paced race against the clock or a relaxed cerebral experience.

You might be thinking, why do I need another word game? I've already got this one, that one and the other one. Well, here's why...

- AlphaDrop includes FOUR games in one...

AlphaDrop features an all-new SpeedUp game mode. As the levels increase, so does the speed at which the letters fall! How many levels can you achieve?

In addition, there's Drop'Em mode where, as you may have guessed from my warning, letters fall onto the board from above. But don't let any of your letter columns get too high, or your game is over. All is not lost, however. Shake your device to clear all the fallen letters . For those of you who don't feel like thinking that fast, there's also a Replace'Em mode with a full grid of 56 letters so you can sit back and spell to your hearts content. As you use letters, those above slide down and new letters drop in to refill the grid. Finally, there's Clear'Em mode where your goal is to use all your letters, so choose your words carefully!

- Heaps of customization possibilities...

You can choose from among 5 Drop 'Em speeds to suit your age, ability and/or need for abuse and earn speed bonuses for the faster speeds. Play any of 5 timed games, or if countdowns don't suit you, go with a Marathon so your game can be as long as you like. You can quit your Marathon game at any time by touching the timer.

- AlphaDrop is pleasing on the eye...

What can be more relaxing than blue skies, fluffy clouds and colorful parachutes? Nothing comes to mind but give me a minute. Nope, I still can't think of anything. Anyway, you can choose among 50 different letter types or allow AlphaDrop to decide for you.

- AlphaDrop will make you smarter...

With an optimized dictionary search engine, your words are checked on the fly. When your current word appears in white text, you've chosen a valid word. Though I can't guarantee your spelling will improve, I'm pretty sure it will. Besides, sometimes you'll be surprised at what's in the dictionary!

- Simple to play...

Touch any letters whether or not they're connected to select or deselect them. When your game ends, just hit the play button to start a new one.

- For Drop'Em, play continues until either the countdown timer expires or if one of your columns reach the clouds.

- For Replace'Em, play continues until the timer expires or you touch the timer when playing a Marathon.

- For Clear'Em, play continues until you cleared all your letters or no more possible words exist.

Well, that's about it. Hours of mind-stretching fun and enjoyment are just a click away. Enjoy!
