(Note: Alphabear has a bigger, better sequel now!)
Alphabear is an original word puzzle game in which you spell words and collect cute bears whose powers boost your score!
In Alphabear, you spell words by selecting letters on a grid. When you use letters that are next to each other, bears appear. The more letters you use in an area, the bigger the bear gets, and the more points you earn. Perform well enough, and you might just a win a bear of your own to keep forever.
Bears that you win can be used as powerups in future games. They increase the points you earn for using certain letters or spelling certain words, extend your timer, increase or decrease the frequency with which letters appear, and more!
Alphabear received the Standout Indie award at the first-ever Google Play Awards in 2016. It was available for free on Google Play (Android) and the iTunes App Store (iOS), but had to be removed from both app markets in mid-May 2019. Unfortunately we do not expect it to return.
As of August 2017, you can now buy the Premium (aka “Hardcover”) Edition for PC and Mac! This version has all in-app purchases and advertisements completely stripped out, an enhanced UI, a real-time in-game dictionary, a new prestige system for the campaign, and is completely rebalanced in general. Check out the trailer for the Hardcover edition and buy it on Steam:
