A new iOS game called Letterpress will change the way you think about word games. On a basic level, the two-player game has you try to outscore your opponent by creating words using colored tiles.
Using a letter will make that tile yours, turning it your color. Surrounding a letter with your color will make it darker, and will make it your letter permanently. The goal of the game is to have more letters in your color than your opponent when all of the tiles have been used.
