NimbleBit got their start by making word games such as Textropolis, which is sadly gone from the App Store. But along with their upcoming game Capitals which is currently in beta, NimbleBit’s first word game in five years is now on the App Store: say hello to Letterpad (Free), which is available now for free, with Apple Watch support. You’ll be forming words relating to a particular topic, formed from a set of 9 letter tiles. There’s over 200 puzzles in the main app itself, and community-added puzzles that you can play with right now. The game lets you use hints to reveal a letter of one of the words you’re trying to find among the tiles.
While the game is playable on the iPhone, the sexy part of this is that you can play the game on your Apple Watch once you get it, starting this Friday, the 24th. This was one of the first games to be announced with Watch support, and now is one of the first word games to make it out with Watch support. So if you’re looking for Apple Watch games, might want to download this one now and have it ready for Friday, or whenever your Apple Watch arrives!
