If you are a steam player, introducing you a revolutionary word game that you will fall in love with instantly. If not, here’s a little heads-up for you. Steam is the ultimate destination for playing, discussing, and creating games. Launched in September 2003, it is a video game digital distribution service by the software publisher Valve.
Steam is a cloud-based games library, safe to install and purchase, download & play games. The most popular feature of Steam is the ability to continue playing where you left off using any computer as the games are downloaded to your Steam account and saved in the cloud.
Steam offers a few free games that can be downloaded and played without a subscription or having to enter your credit card details. Given the amount of enjoyment, there are certain games that you wouldn’t mind purchasing. One such game is Shuzzler, the classic word game first released on iOS.
Once you purchase the game for a fair share, you will be prompted to enter your initials to create a game avatar. Shuzzler is yet another spelling words game with a fresh twist. Your goal for each level is to spell as many words as possible, earning the most points before the timer runs out.
You spell words that meet certain conditions as displayed in a card. What, cards? In a spelling game? Yes, a deck of cards.
While you keep wondering the purpose of a deck of cards in a spelling game, let’s have a quick look at the possible ways to spell words.
To spell words in the tile matrix, you can
- Click individual letter tiles and click the arrow near the spelled word to submit.
- Swipe to form words. Unlike the former, swiping will earn you one extra point per letter.
- Use your keyboard to spell words. Swiping is not supported on the keyboard.
Now that you know enough about spelling the words, let’s see what is unique about the deck of cards that makes the game special.
When clicked, each card contains different instructions, following which you must spell words. For instance, a card might instruct you to find 3-letter words or ask you to find colors. Each card revealed from the deck holds a point value that you can score as soon as you spell the designated number of words. Valid ones, of course.
To spice up the game, you have action cards like Shuffle, Add Tiles and Add Gems in the deck. While you can easily guess the purpose of Shuffle and Add Tiles cards, an Add Gems card adds ruby, emerald, and sapphire gems to the grid. Each gem carries a specific point, and you can bag those points by clearing all the tiles below them.

Every set of levels is themed. So as soon as you finish the first few, you can gear up for game levels pertaining to food, animal, geography, English, Science, and more.
