One part word game, one part intense future action flight driving simulator. Tilt your iPhone/iPod touch to steer a disembodied finger left and right as it flies across a futuristic landscape littered with letters. Collect letters, spell words, score points!

Product Details

Two infectious modes of play:

** Free Play - Race against the clock to spell as many words that'll nab you the most points and time bonuses (hint: the longer the word, the more points you'll get, the longer you'll be able to last). Grab score multipliers along the way to make your words worth even more. There's a backspace key, but using it will dock you points. And dignity.

** Challenges - Forget about coming up with your own words. In the Challenges mode we give you the words, then you race to spell them. You're only competing against the clock here - the game keeps track of the top scorer for each list. If you mess up there's always a backspace key...but winners don’t use backspace.

Future *FREE* updates (coming on a regular basis) to include additional Challenge lists to play!

Lists included in this version: Pizza Toppings, Video Games, Cheeses, Hairstyles, Fonts, Mythical Beasts, Bones, Soups, U.S. Presidents, and Dances.

Additional amazing features:

- Post your Free Play high scores or Challenge times to Facebook for all of your friends, relatives and pets to see.

- Local high scores are stored on your device for Free Play and Challenges. Ruin a friend's high score list by schooling them on their phone and entering your name. They’ll hate that.

- Listen to your own music while playing.

- You can add words to the dictionary on your device. If by some slim impossible chance a word you spell is not counted by the game (slang, alternate spellings, swears, etc.), you can add it! Go to Settings, Add Word to enter new words. Take that, competing word games!

About the Game

5. What is Spell My Finger?

In this game, you must guide your finger-spaceship across a vast futuristic wasteland littered with all the letters of the alphabet, spelling as many words as you can before time runs out. The longer the words you spell, the more time and points you'll score.

6. How do I play?

Tilt the phone left and right to navigate the letter landscape. When your finger-spaceship touches a letter, it is collected and becomes part of your word. Your speed is adjustable by the on screen throttle swipe and the angle of a prod affects your movement. Once you believe you've spelled a complete word, tap the screen to submit the word and gather points/time. Words not recognized by the game's dictionary incurs a time penalty. The game ends when you run out of time.

For more detailed instructions on how to play, refer to the in-game help menu.

7. How can I win this game?

Move quickly across the landscape and gather higher point value letters spell longer words to add time. You can also collect bonus score multipliers to maximize your score value for words.
