AlphaNomad is a word game where you select letters to solve the word. It is an alternative to the traditional hangman game, only much better.
There are 2 versions; Free and Pro. Both are full versions although the free version is supported with advertising.
There are different challenges in this app to suit nearly everyone. You can casually play the game without pressure (Freeplay Classic) or be challenged by up to 12 levels of skill (Multi-Level), play against a timer (Time Trial) or play against your friends (Multi-Player).
The words have been carefully screened to ensure they are standard English words (unlike the scrabble wordlists found on the internet today.
AlphaNomad also has a number of themes that can be applied to the app to suit your style. These themes were designed using Inkscape, an open source drawing program.
Animation sequences are used in the game and each word length has its own animations. These animations were designed using Blender 3D, a 3D modelling program and also open source.
