Utilize your touch-typing skills mastered over years of texting your friends
Scrabble is a game that pairs well with slow, rainy afternoons and a nice cup of tea. It allows you to relax and really brood over your next move. There is that type of word game and then there is Battle text. Battle Text pairs well with lightning fast typing and a quick mind. It is a bit like antakshri in some levels and a variation of the same in some others.
In the story mode of Battle Text, you play against your favourite emojis brought to life as detailed characters. There is Kitty Purry, the world’s most popular singing cat and The Jabberwock, who is rumoured to just make up words as it flies. The other mode is the multiplayer mode, where you will be randomly matched up against another player with a randomized ruleset as well. You can also taunt the other player using a bunch of emojis while they are typing and throw them off their game with what is essentially a drawing of a face. Each game forces you to utilize your touch-typing skills mastered over years of texting your friends. It also forces you to think up complicated words in a matter of seconds and get up to 50 points before your opponent does.
There are also daily challenges with tasks like playing five multiplayer games or ending 3 words with ‘-ing’ for you to complete. The game looks cute, with bright colours and emojis used abundantly. Another feature of this game is that you can easily play with your friends by logging in using Facebook. This shall give warring bookworms a suitable method to establish a clear superiority. There are ads after each level and this might seem too frequent because the levels are quite short but it is tolerable. On the whole, Battle Text is a nice way to text and learn something along the way as well.
