chalk Up!
Description
chalk Up! the iOS “classic” fast-paced anagrams/word game is now back, remastered & powered by DEFOLD engine With its two dictionaries (English&Italian), two ways of playing (Letters Only / Letters and Pictures) and its three game modes (Normal, Caesar Code (+1) and Backward) you’ll be able to have fun for hours while you’ll be checking your brain speed and your word knowledge. The aim of the game In chalk Up! you simply have to write as many words as you can in the given time, using on-screen letters or pictures (that stand for the first letter of the picture main element name). Every word you write will give you points and a bonus in seconds to extend the length of the game. So remember: longer words can be harder to find, but they mean more points and extra time! Be aware that once a letter is used to write a word, it disappears and it will be replaced with a new one. So a bit of strategy is needed because you have to take care even of the letters you don’t use to write a valid word. Too many equal letters (or “rare” ones) left, or few vowels can really lower your chances to keep on playing. Anyway, if during the game you cannot find any word to enter, and you’ve got reached enough points, you can ask for a suggestion. A suggested word won’t let you earn points or seconds, but it can be essential if things become too odd, and time too short, to clean up your board. Game Modes chalk Up! will let you choose three different game modes: Normal, where you have to write words as you normally do (tree = T R E E), Ceasar Code (+1) or Backward. Ceasar Code (+1) requires that every letter of the word you want to write has to be shifted by one position along the normal alphabetical order (tree = U S F F, house = I N V T F), while Backward mode requires, instead, that you write every word from the last letter to the first one (tree = E E R T, house = E S U O H).
Great Idea - Poor Execution

Game would be enjoyable if everyday words were included. As I write this, probably only 20% of the words I have written would be recognized as real words. Wouldn't waste even 99 cents until a real dictionary is provided.
Update not working!

Now words such as "parent", "spine" to name a few are not recognized as legitimate words! Please fix update !
Bad dictionary

Fun enough, but doesn't recognize many ordinary English words. I probably won't play the game very much for that reason. It's quite annoying to have it reject real words!
Really fun game, very addictive.. terrible dictionary

Chalk Up! is a very addictive word game that has you making words from a random set of letters or letters and pictures (where the pictures represent the letters they begin with). I love the game, my only complaint is the list of acceptable words is baffling. The app won't allow words that it should (i.e "mall", "timer", "mom" -- it will allow "dad" though.. hmmm). And it does allow random abbreviations like "cc" or "lbs" If the developer would get a more standard dictionary of words and do away with the various abbreviations, I think it would be a spectacular game.

Typos in the instructions. Not very clever for a spelling game.
Great Game and more challenging than appears

This game is great and you can play when you just have a short time or longer time to play. The Caesar mode definitely uses those brain cells and it harder than one would think. The graphics are just fine and you can choose on any mode to just use "letters" instead "letters and pictures" though I find the combination option more fun. The directions given are easy to understand and one can get going on the game quickly. It would be fun for kids too. Certainly one of the more unique word games and I am sure I will be playing quite a lot on both my ipad and iphone. I also appreciate the game being devised for both the pad and phone/touch
