Alphabear Review

October 23, 2015 — by Anusha "Trillian" Sinha0

Alphabear

Alphabear is an innovative word game about words and well, bears. The objective of the game is to create words by using letters adjacent to small bears in order to grow them into bigger bears. Because obviously, bears survive on words, the lovers of sesquipedalian that they are.

Each letter has a limited number of turns that it can be used in and after that limit is reached, it becomes unplayable, blocking areas of the board and depleting your word-hungry bear of space to grow in. The game is enjoyable for anyone who likes words or bears. There is a wide range of adorable bears that serve as power-ups. These increase the points you earn, extend the timer, increase or decrease the frequency with which letters appear on the game board and more. The bears include a high-society Parisian bear, ghost bear, robot bear and even a rare milky bear (whatever that is). And just for good measure, there is also a bear in a bear costume. These bears jump up with joy every time you end a level. They also come up with sayings which incorporate the words you created while playing the game.

You can also share these on various social networking sites. Which is how you end up with funky bear saying, “I like my coffee the same way I like my tides: nodal” Does it not make any sense? Does not have to. They are bears who love words, not necessarily those who have a good hold on what those words mean. The game features cool design with the most pleasing colour schemes. The one downside to this game is that you require an internet connection to play it. The latest update does include two easy and two hard events, but these do not reward you with coins or bears. However, the developers do keep in touch with the players and have incorporated FAQs and a news feed into the game itself and keep trying to actively improve the user experience.
