WordOn HD: Who Can Find the Word with the Highest Value?

KARLSRUHE, Germany and AMSTERDAM – December 13, 2012 flaregames GmbH , developer and publisher of hit titles Ocean Tower and Royal Revolt have just released WordOn HD, an innovative, free word game for two players. WordOn HD is now available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, worldwide. The title was originally developed by UnitedGames in Amsterdam and expanded and refined in conjunction with the flaregames team.

WordOn HD is an addictive new word game. How it works: You play with friends (or random opponents) in one of six languages. In the game you have your own board where you try to make the highest point words. Very simple, but WordOn HD adds a twist to make it tricky, since the letters in the WordOn fields must be used by your opponent in the next round. Anyone who sends a "Q" to an opponent and desperately needs an "E", can see how WordOn HD is a fun and challenging game.

Besides all of the excitement of beating friends and strangers, WordOn HD is also a great learning game: You can select any of the six language versions and expand your vocabulary while playing. An ideal holiday gift, you might say, if it were not already free.

"WordOn HD is a great addition to our mid-core portfolio, because although it is deep and really captivating, it‘s also a very accessible game. One thing that I really like is that it‘s a game that‘s suitable for children and adults, women and men," said Klaas Kersting, CEO of flaregames GmbH.

About WordOn HD!

Play against friends and random opponents

Connect with Facebook to find your friends - or take on random opponents. Since the rounds are not very long, you can easily play several games simultaneously.

Easy to Play

The intuitive interface and thorough tutorial make the game easy to learn and accessible to all players, whether young or old, beginner or expert.

Many extras and features

If you want to tell your opponent a word in between rounds, or talk during the game, the in-game chat makes it all possible. Games you’ve played are stored in your history and the stats are tracked, so you can revisit your games later and see how you did.

Available in six languages

WordOn HD is available in English, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian and French. Anyone wanting to practice or learn another language can do it while playing the game. It doesn’t replace a formal language course, but it is a great way to practice.

Fair free to play

WordOn HD is available for free in the AppStore and via Google Play. It supports "in-app purchases", where players can maximize their gameplay by purchasing small power-ups and enhancements through micro-transactions. Of course, the game can be played completely without ever having to spend money.
