String'em In

iPhone word puzzler based on the TV series, on the App Store now.

Manchester 20 November 2009: You can’t find String ‘em In™ among the pages of your dictionary, but if you could it would be the definition of the ultimate word-puzzle game.

Based on the worldwide digital television hit of the same name, String ‘em In™ is what happens when you mix word games such as Scrabble and Boggle with the block-puzzler genre to create something incredibly addictive. Developed by Manchester-based game studio Connect2Media, the game is available on iTunes from today.

Watch as your iPhone’s screen springs to life, filling with brightly coloured letter blocks. The more words you make out of the random letters, the higher you score! Facebook scoring connectivity lets you share your total with the world and challenge friends to do better. Go for broke and try to clear the entire screen before the timer runs out and use iTunes soundtrack compatibility to help you get into the zone.

With infinite randomly generated word grids and five difficulty settings to tackle, you will be playing String ‘em In for hours and hours. Available now on iTunes for $2.99/£1.79/€2.36 and as a free lite version, a world of word power awaits you with String ‘em In™
