Seek ‘n Spell Finds its Way Onto iPhone 3G

Celebrate Earth Day by Enjoying the Great
Outdoors with the GPS-Based Game, Get a Taste for the Fun with the Live-Action

The Retronyms announced today the release of
their new app Seek ‘n Spell for the iPhone 3G. Seek ‘n Spell transforms iPhone
gaming from a solo, sedentary experience to an active and social outdoor
contest. Combining real outdoor spaces with virtual letters, Seek ‘n Spell is a
word game where you and your friends compete to gather letter tiles and create
words to score the most points. Want to see it in action? The Seek ‘n Spell
trailer is available for download below.

With Seek ‘n Spell, players gather in a park or
other large outdoor space with a clear view of the sky and activate the app.
Seek ‘n Spell detects all the players present and scatters letter tiles across
the playing field. Players then race one another around the field to capture up
to 10 letter tiles at a time, which they use to create words. Coveted gold tiles
will appear randomly on the field, earning players a doubled score when used in
words. Points are earned based on the length of the words players spell, and the
player with the most points when time runs out wins.

“The GPS capabilities of the iPhone 3G offer new
gaming opportunities, and we’re taking full advantage of them with Seek ‘n
Spell,” said Dan Walton, co-founder of Retronyms. “We are using the GPS as an
innovative game controller, where your actual location on Earth drives the
gameplay. We’re releasing Seek ‘n Spell on Earth Day to celebrate our planet and
encourage iPhone users to get outside and play.”
