Objective: Spell words! Longer words are worth more points.

To Play:

1. Tap a letter on the map to pick it up

2. Spell a word by dragging letters to the placeholders

3. Touch the submit button.. that's all!

More Info:

outWord is like other words games, but with a twist: you must build words out of virtual letters that are located in the real world! To use the letters, you must be physically near them. To win, you must use your wits and your feet.

Pick up letters by tapping on them before someone else does. Other players in your area can see the same letters! If the letters are too far away, they will appear somewhat transparent and you must get closer to grab them. Once you have enough letters to make a word, drag them into the placeholders and tap submit. Longer words are worth a lot more points, as are the rare red letters, so aim for those to make your score grow faster. If you want to ditch your current batch of letters, throw them to the ground (with a downward motion of the iPhone/iPod Touch).

outWord is a great way to make your daily routine a bit more fun, and a great excuse to get out and explore your neighborhood, town, and beyond. Can you outwit other players and make one of the week's high scores?

outWord is best played outdoors in the sunshine, but it also works on WiFi!

Terrific innovative game!

5/5 stars

Great Game!

Love this game! It works best when you're on the move. I'm also a U of M grad too. Go Blue!

4/5 stars

Creatively addicting uniqueness

Certainly a new taste of iPhone gaming adventure! Can be played individually and as a group. Equally challenging and fun! It would be great if there is an option to communicate with friend players. Otherwise OutWord is really an app worth downloading even for a nominal price. Support Michigan!
