About this game

Developer: Spry Fox
Content Rating: Everyone


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!

It’s that attention to detail that keeps Alphabear constantly interesting. There are in-app purchase clouding things a little, and restricting how much you can accomplish at times, but a $5 one-off fee dispenses with that and this is a game that feels worth the price.

At its core, AlphaBear isn't dramatically different from most other letter games, but between its few gameplay twists, the rewarding collection mechanic, and its infectiously silly and fun-loving nature, it's an easy game to fall for. While I'm not totally happy with the power-up system, it's still a remarkably generous example of a free-to-play game

There’s no other word game quite like Alphabear. Chipping away at uncharted land in each level feels good, as does watching your bear expand into a behemoth that’s bursting with point potential. The in-game dictionary is pretty expansive, too: I rarely find myself sputtering over the nonsensical rejection of a valid word. Also, the game accepts a pretty expansive list of swears. It’s evil, but sometimes getting rid of four red tiles in one go means having to offend your grandmother.
