Acropolis Reviewed
12:55 PM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Yesterday Macworld's Game Room posted a review of Game House's Acropolis. The word based puzzle game asks players to form words from adjacent letter tiles in order to score points. The Game Room gave Acropolis 4 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

You can form words using as few as three letters, but you’re rewarded with power-ups and other treats for using five or more. Some power-ups add shuffle points, for example (allowing you to shuffle the existing board if you get stuck), or get hints. Others blast random tiles to gold, serve as wild letters, or give you extra turns.

Some tiles add challenge to the game: the triple tile, for example, turns gold only after you’ve used it in three different words. The tar tile reverts back if you use it for more than four words.

To read the entire review and learn more about the game follow the links below.
