Touchy Words is mix of Scrabble, Deep Leap and Shuffled Row with a fun touch screen interface. You have to come up with as many words as possible with 64 letters. The longer the words the more points it gets.
In each game you are given 64 tiles. Each tile is a letter and you have write words using them. When you have found a word, the tiles disappear and leave room for more.
The letters come one by one in a row. A timer is started when a new letter appears. When the time is up, you are given a new letter. Once the row reaches 9 letters, each new one will replace the oldest one. It means you have limited time to come up with a word.
The score system is based on the points of each letters and the length of the word. Words of length 4 are multiplied by 2 and the longer the word, the higher the multiplier.

After playing Shuffled Row on the Kindle for 2 weeks, I was sad to discover no games of this type were available on my phone. That's when I decided to build this game.
Touchy Words is my first Android Game and it's built using the wonderful Scala programming language. I have previously worked on some Java games for Gameloft a few years ago. Programming this game was a lot more fun. The Android environment is a pleasure to work with.
