Tower of tiles

In Tower Mode, the challenge is to find as many high-scoring words as possible. Since tiles aren't replenished, it might be a good idea to sit and think over your options to be sure that you're making all the right moves.

Don't hit the ceiling

In both of the Puzzle modes and Rush Mode, the idea is to keep your tiles from hitting the top of the board.

No moves left

When you can no longer make any words with the letters you have left, hit "done" to end your game and see your high score.

Multiplayer

Find a friend, link up via Wi-Fi, and challenge each other. The pace of the multiplayer Debate Mode is very similar to that of the old-school head-to-head battles on Tetris for Game Boy.
