Twistism is a simple yet captivating anagram game played against the clock, and involves two styles of play, classic and extreme.
At the start of each level you are given between six and nine letters to make words with. Points are awarded for word size, and sometimes extra time. Twistism classic is played on a level-by-level basis, where qualification to the next level is obtained by working out the six letter word (or the largest word in the game for different word lengths). The extreme game is played on a continuous basis, with the opportunity to swap letters when a target score is reached.
To gain inspiration when stuck, there is a twist button which mixes all the letters up.
For each puzzle length, there are three difficulty levels. Easy involves the 1500-most common words in the English dictionary. Medium involves the next 4500 most common. Difficult involves most of the words in the language - except proper nouns. Words which have too many anagrams have also been removed from play.
What this means is over 20,000 six-letter puzzles, over 25,000 seven-letter words, over 30,000 eight-letter words, and over 35,000 nine-letter words.
Can continue to guess after time has expired.
Can now listen to iPod if game sound is switched off.
Words not guessed are easier to read.
Letter tiles can be prevented from sliding around (for faster play).
