I was more interested in this before seeing it in action. It seems a little bland. The characters don't have enough variety in their animations. There should be more elaborate attacks depending on the complexity of the words, like puzzle fighter. Agatha Christie could summon a train; Poe could send his ravens to attack or bring out a beating heart to scramble letters. Something like that would make it more interesting to me. I realize that it isn't a finished product, so I hope that gets put in before release.

Edit: They said it's placeholder art, so I'm interested to see how the final product looks.

Previous Quicklook:

"Let the record show that I never let go of the hold button."

This Quicklook:

"I've gone through the whole Quicklook without realizing the letters were weighted."

that's 2 for 2, Brad. you better start sobering up for these Quicklooks or i'm gonna tell Jeff what you're up to.

I can't wait to see this on my iPad. Looks good!

No WP7 release? Ehhhhhh.  Looks good, but unfortunately, I cannot get it.

Jane Austen is the brawler? Awesome.

A game with this name already exists in the app store (just checked, released a few weeks ago). Does this mean they would have to change it eventually when they release it?

So, if I got this right at first glance, then it's Edgar Allen Poe, Agatha Christie, the Brothers Grimm, Jane Austen, Homer, and H. P. Lovecraft?

As DLC they are going to add fictional authors starting with Jessica Fletcher who's special ability it to instantly kill her opponent.

Finally a game since Swocery that makes gaming on the ipad worth a damn

I am loving the designs and looks of these characters, very cool to see them imagined in this style.

Why? I could have written a paragraph explaining why I don't want it on here and instead keep it on tested where it has been, but that sentence summarizes it well enough.

Triple damage seems pretty busted.

I love iPhone and iPad games, and this looks really awesome. I love the developer in this video, too. He's great at quick looks. 
 
I'm getting this.

Posted by ThePhilatron

Sold!

Posted by BabyChooChoo

I always love it when they manage to get a designer/developer whose really into the quick look. This guy was really cool and I'll definitely be picking this up when it hits Android.

That's not a word!

I think...

Is it?

Brad: I went through the entire Quick Look not knowing the letters were weighted. 
 
Developer: I EVEN SAID! 
 
Brad: I only heard half the things said during this Quick Look.  
 
 
Brad is trolling everyone.

Great quicklook! Will Smith is ALWAYS welcome on the Bomb.

Posted by TruthTellah

The developer really did a great job here.  I wasn't that interested at first, but his love for the game and thoughtfulness for how it would actually be enjoyed made me appreciate it more and more.  Quick Look EX's like this are fantastic when the developer is so on-board. :)

Another classic Brad quote: "I went through this whole thing not realizing the letters are weighted." Does he say this stuff on purpose??!!

He's trolling. He has to be. Off camera he claims to have reached diamond league in Starcraft 2's multi, and he hit no.1 in the leaderboards on Bastion. On camera he goes into derp mode.

Just wanted to say that the videos thru the mobile site are knd of broken again on iPad.

Posted by HorseMeatRider

"Hap"? "Pah"? "Mels"? Based on the developer's playstyle, it looks like they have an overly-inclusive dictionary, and an effective player just shits out random strings of letters really quickly hoping it's some outdated plural latin abbreviation.

YO THEY NEED TO ADD HUNTER S THOMPSON AS A DLC CHARACTER! 
 
...instead of letters he throws bottles of Wild Turkey. 
 
He also does quadruple damage if you spell the word "Nazi". (on a side note, i wonder why they didnt do that with the powers...give each character a certain word or set of words that are associated with their writing style and use them as "power triggers")

Looks decent, but I don't know if I would play it for a long time.
