OatyCakes Software today is pleased to introduce Word Slots 1.0 for iOS, a new spin on word games. Word Slots, with its innovative letter randomizer and game play, is set to reinvent a market that has been lacking change.
Since the release of the first word games back in 1948, the industry has stayed stagnant. "Looking at the top word games today, they're almost all the same," says Lane Thompson, Chief Development Officer at OatyCakes, "the games currently out there are rehashes of a world before computers, much less smart phones."
That is what OatyCakes is going to change with the release of Word Slots. Designed and developed in Albuquerque, NM, Word Slots hopes to shake up the market. In Word Slots, letters appear on slot machine reels and it is up to the player to bet how many words they think they'll be able to make. Some spins may be effortless, while others may be almost impossible. As Lane says, "that introduces an element of uncertainty that's lacking in today's word games."
The advantages to this design is that it encourages guessing at words you're not sure about. The element that makes Word Slots different from any other game, however, is that it is winnable. As Mr. Thompson says, "When the timer goes off on some word games, they tell you how many words you could have made. That leaves you frustrated. When you win a spin in Word Slots, you get an amazing sense of accomplishment."
Word Slots is available for the iPhone and iPod touch starting August 28th for 99 cents. More information is available at OatyCakes online.
Word Slots 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.
