Addictive Word Puzzler Quarrel Deluxe Reduced To 99c

By , on October 17, 2011

(Apologies to all non-football fans and non-UK-based television viewers for the following important announcement.)

When the news broke that Sky Soccer Saturday anchor Jeff Stelling had resigned from Channel 4 words and numbers quiz show Countdown, this particular writer was devastated.

How would I recover? How could I continue?

Pretty easily, as it happens, for I've become clinically addicted to Indiagames's Quarrel Deluxe almost overnight, and I no longer hum the Countdown theme tune in my sleep. I think.

The reason my girlfriend has to surgically remove my fingers at 10pm from the iPhone touchscreen and the lure of Quarrel Deluxe?

It combines two of my favourite things in the world (outside of Countdown, of course): real-time strategy and anagrams.

Don't just take my - cough - word for it, though. On reviewing Quarrel Deluxe for a recent Friday news wrap-up, our Andrew commented that it 'manages to mash together Risk and Scrabble in a way that's so addictive you'd have to wonder if an unholy ceremony was involved.'

And the fact that Indiagames's word puzzler is now available for 99c means Quarrel Deluxe Anonymous should get ready for an influx of new members.

I paid $5 for it and I'm glad I did. It's a truly excellent game, although I really hope that eventually they'll add multiplayer as the game screams for it. But even as is, it's loads of fun. (and I never liked Scrabble before!!)
