A couple of weeks ago, we sat down with Semi Secret Software’s Adam Saltsman. One of the many topics we covered in the conversation was, of all things, Wurdle [$1.99]. It’s another word game but it’s remarkable because it was one of the first big word game productions to hit the now-word-game cluttered App Store. After assaulting us with his thoughts about developing this initial title, he also dropped that a new update was in the works -- an update that would bring Wurdle into this era of the App Store. That update is now available. PSI Rockin'.
In a nutshell, version 3.0 of Wurdle is a catch-up upgrade. The game now boasts new retina display artwork and Univeral app functionality. More importantly, Game Center multiplayer has been added, as well as same-screen multiplayer for the iPad variant. You can also set time limits, look up word definitions, and even pass-and-play locally on both versions.
The kicker here is that it’s still $1.99, which is a pretty solid price for a good game with a crazy legacy and, obviously, the support of its developer. Check it out if you’re in the mood for some word hijinks or just like looking at pretty retina artwork.
