Word Fusion

Word Fusion is a word spelling game that you have certain goals to make in order to continuing on to the next level. You have to spell a certain number of 4, 5 and 6 letter words in order to progress to the next level. Every time you spell a word the tiles will fall bringing you more letters to use and spell with. You can play this in single player mode or in a two player mode. In order to play the two player game via turn based or online you need to have Game Center so if you have a phone older than an iPhone 3GS you won’t play this, but you can play through your Bluetooth even if you have an iPhone 3G.  You can even play in a two player mode simultaneously on the iPad only.

The basis of the game is to spell the words you need to complete that level and try to get as many as you can. You can even switch two letters as many times as you want if you are unable to spell anything you have on the board. There are even 22 levels with each level increasing in difficulty to make the game more enjoyable and challenging. You can try out the Word Fusion Free game which appears to have the single player mode as the only thing that’s active. If you want to play with a friend, then you’ll have to get the full version of the game.
