A hybrid but not a mongrel
Pick up your copy of BaliFied here for absolutely nothing and get playing on your iPhone or iPad!
Puzzlers are hardly on short hand, but word-based puzzlers are a little trickier to get right without sounding patronising, overly complicated, or boring. BaliFied – Word Game of the Gods, however, seems to have an interesting take on an old classic.
From Bali-based Dragon Game Studio, BaliFied is an all-new social word game that allows you to play with people all across the globe and mixes words with card-game strategy. It sounds complicated, but it's quite simple.
Like Scrabble mixed with Solitaire, you have to create a word by stacking your cards one on top of the other. Each card represents a certain number of points and collectively the points are all added up at the end of each turn.
It's your job to create the biggest word you can to get the most points (oh, let's throw a bit of Countdown in there then). On top of the cards in your hand you can also get cards that give you special abilities, such as the Bali Card – a card that equates to 5 points and can be used as any letter.
BaliFied is set to drop this Thursday 28th July on the App Store. An Android release is set for late 2016/early 2017. We'll let you know the moment it becomes available.
