Frisky Hands-On: Hexalex for iPhone + Free Download Code Giveaway!

iPhone, Mobile

Triplepoint Client Nathaniel Gray released Hexalex for iPhone and iPod Touch earlier this month and has taken the word puzzle game world by storm. Luckily enough, we were lucky to take a look at the game and share our experience with you. Be sure to check the bottom of the page for your chance to win Hexalex!

Hexalex can best be described as Scrabble turned on its side, or at least turned into a diagonal fashion. You have a set of tiles on the board that you can use in order to form words on the board. Each letter tile is assigned a certain point value that is added up when the word is formed and that is what determines your score on each turn. However, certain places on the board have special bonuses that can add to your score such as “triple letter” or “double word” bonuses. Certain words will even earn you medal bonuses that you can share and brag about to your friends.

The real stand-out feature in Hexalex is the ability to play against a computer or friends along with an excellent dictionary system in order to find word combinations. All you have to do is enter your Facebook information and all of your Facebook friends that play Hexalex will be found in order for you to play against, it’s that simple.

Along with being a great word game, Hexalex also sports a simple, wood style that doesn’t interfere with gameplay and iOS4 support so you can jump in and out of the game at any time and not lose your place. If you’d like to try Hexalex for yourself, don’t hesitate to jump on over to the App Store and download it.

We were lucky enough to snag a few extra codes to giveaway to you! To win one, it’s simple: Just hop over to the official Frisky Mongoose Twitter, make sure to follow us, then @ reply us with the best word you can make out of the letters “DAGOOSE”. We will pick the winners tomorrow and DM them a code for a free copy of Hexalex. You must be following us to win! For an example tweet:

Thanks for playing, and be sure to enter so you can start Hexalexing with your friends as quick as possible!
