About Word Wonders: The Tower of Babel:
Once upon a time humanity was united in tolerance and peace, and everyone spoke a common language. But as their power grew, so did their arrogance until they decided to build the infamous Tower of Babel to reach heaven. To punish humanity for their impudence the gods scattered them across the face of the Earth and confused their languages. Soon squabbling and conflict amongst the groups commenced until one young hero emerged to discover the truth of the Tower of Babel and return the ancient tongue to mankind.
In the Adventure Mode of Word Wonders: The Tower of Babel players assume the role of the young hero and climb the tower, level by level, to defeat the mystical guardians of the ancient tongue. The journey takes players through 50 stages, each with a challenging opponent that must be defeated in a duel of spelling and cunning. Using a magic Boost Board, players will unlock special abilities and spells, to help them deal more damage and earn more gold with each turn. Likewise, gold earned in duels can be used to purchase upgrades for the magic Boost Board, which will help players improve their hero and achieve even higher scores. Gold can also be used to purchase ingredients for the alchemy lab, where players will mix healing potions and other powerful items that replenish their energy, deal damage to their opponents, and more! In addition to Adventure Mode, Word Wonders also features a local 2-player Duel Mode where players can challenge their friends, choose a character from amongst the heroes and mystical creatures featured in the adventure, and enter into a word duel in one of several special 2-player stages.
This unique word puzzle RPG experience is available for PC and slated to launch on iOS platforms in early November in English, French, German and Spanish, so stay tuned at: http://www.dreamfab.com/
