Hey guys and welcome to new iOS game time! I really wasn’t expecting much this week, being E3 and all, but there’s actually a ton of new games that have just hit the US App Store. Speaking of E3, Eli and myself are super busy running around the expo, trying to dig up cool mobile game stuff. So I’ll keep this short and sweet and just say check out the full list below, there’s definitely some neat games with “hidden gem" potential, and let us know in the comments which ones you’ve got your eye on.


Alphabear: Word Puzzle Game

alphabear alphabear1

iTunes Description

Alphabear is an original word puzzle game by Spry Fox, the developer of the award winning game Triple Town.

In Alphabear, you spell words by selecting letters on a grid. When you use letters that are next to each other, bears appear! The more letters you use in an area, the bigger the bear gets, and the more points you earn. Perform well enough, and you might just a win a bear of your own to keep forever.

Bears that you win can be used as powerups in future games! They increase the points you earn for using certain letters or spelling certain words, extend your timer, increase or decrease the frequency with which letters appear, and more!

Thank you for playing the very first public version of Alphabear… we hope you like it! 🙂
