Free version of wordy puzzler available for the iPhone.


January 5, 2009 (Dallas, TX) – Dallas-based Blockdot has released a free version of Chicktionary – one of the most popular word games on the internet – for the iPhone, and has boosted the puzzle count in the full iPhone version.

In Chicktionary, your goal 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.

• 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.

The free version of the game (“Chicktionary Lite”) has 12 levels of game play. The full version of Chicktionary, which now comes with 300 puzzles, can be purchased for only $1.99. Both versions can be downloaded from the iTunes Chicktionary homepage http://www.blockdot.com/iphone/.
