Very Nice Studios releases Word Hex v2 – an addictive word game that's dude-tested and chick-approved!

November 14, 2012

Gdynia, Poland – November 15, 2012. Very Nice Studio is proud to announce a new and improved iOS (iPad/iPhone) version of Word Hex – the fast-paced, highly addictive word search game!

V.2 includes the same great features that have made Word Hex one of the most popular iOS/Android word search games: simple “slide-and-play” format, gigantic (aka “ Scrabble-sized”) dictionary, two engaging game modes, a wide variety of Game Center achievements and of course, Hexie the Witch – plus several brand-new elements guaranteed to extend your coffee break an extra five minutes and have you muttering words like “onomatopoeia” in your sleep.

According to Krzysztof Hrynkiewicz, Very Nice Studio’s CEO, the decision to upgrade Word Hex was a no-brainer. “S ince its launch in August, we’ve received great feedback to Word Hex from gamers of all ages, colors and creeds; in particular, we’re quite pleased with how well it’s resonated with the ladies. Given the amount of new players we’re acquiring every day, it made perfect sense to roll out some new features and make the playing experience even more enjoyable.”
