Blockdot Releases Chicktionary Game for iPhone

December 11, 2008 (Dallas, TX)– Dallas-based Blockdot has released an iPhone version of Chicktionary, one of the most popular word games on the internet.

Your goal in Chicktionary is to unscramble a roost full of letters and create as many words as possible. Each chicken bears a letter. Tap the chickens and spell out a word, then watch as the word appears below them. The more words you create, the more points you earn!

Besides the egg-citing game play, Chicktionary has cool features that give it depth, making for one of the most engaging game experiences on the iPhone and iPod Touch:

· Shake your iPhone to shuffle your chickens and get a new look at your word options.

· Earn Eggchievements for crazy stuff or just playing the game like a pro.

· Play 100 levels in the full version and 12 levels in the“lite” version.

· Save your game and complete it at a later time.

· Send a challenge-a-friend message directly from your iPhone.

· Post your scores to a worldwide leader board.

· Find hidden Chicktionary Easter eggs that are as fun and farm-fresh as the game itself.

You can purchase the full version of Chicktionary for only $1.99 by visiting the iTunes Chicktionary homepage at http://www.blockdot.com/ourServices/mobile.aspx.
