Letris: When Tetris and Scrabble have a baby
And now, to keep with recommended “late night” games, today I want to share Letris 3, a game that uses the Falling Bricks mode from Tetris and the creation of new words from Scrabble. Is one of those games where, if you don’t buy a life, you will have to wait 20 min to get a new one, however, so far has worth the wait.
It’s available in 7 languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian and Catalan) and the fun part is that, if you speak two languages, you can select a main language and a secondary one, so you can create words in both languages (which should give you more options).
It has an Online mode with approx. 300 free levels, and also has an offline mode that splits the screen in two so you can play with your friends. It has so far over 5.000.000 users and it even has its own Tv show (quite popular in Spain).
One of the things I think is fantastic is that when you finish a match, all the words you elaborate will show on a clickable list where you can check what each one of the words mean (in case that you build a random word and have no idea of what that means), so if you check a language that you don’t know, you can actually learn it. This was particularly interesting, specially if we have kids at home. We can play with them with the offline mode and let them learn new words. I like to think that we always have to share with the little ones in a way that helps them to learn something different everyday, games aren’t bad, we just need to turn them into the perfect excuse for them to learn more.
