All Articles: Alphabear
You might have missed it (I know I did), but Spry Fox released an expanded and updated version of Alphabear for the PC earlier this week. Alphabear is available to download now as a special Hardcover Edition that ditches the free-to-play aspects of the mobile game for a one-time $9.99 price tag.
Alphabear is a simple wordbuilding puzzle game at heart, but it also encourages players to collect adorable stuffed bears to multiply their score:
In Alphabear, you spell words by selecting letters on a grid. When you use letters that are adjacent to each other, bears appear! The more letters you use, the bigger the bear gets, and the more points you earn! When your score is high enough, you’ll also win a bear for your permanent collection. These bears can be used as powerups in future games! They increase the points you earn, extend your timer, increase or decrease the frequency with which letters appear on the game board, and more. And your bears “learn” from the words you use in-game and will repeat them back to you in unexpectedly witty and horrible ways.
Alphabear’s Hardcover Edition adds a companion dictionary to help players build their vocabulary, as well as a Prestige difficulty mode for players who complete every Chapter, and a series of randomized daily boards.
Spry Fox is giving early adopters the chance to purchase Alphabear: Hardcover Edition on Steam for 10% off until August 30.

But how can you trust the conventional wisdom when last year featured a ridiculously entertaining string of good games starring kid squids, gothic hunters, glitchy sci-fi heroes, and the lone survivor of a nuclear war. And all that’s before you dip into the millions of user-created levels from Super Mario Maker.
Yup, we think 2015 was a pretty great year for games, especially the ones that took home some hardware during our annual Golden Pixel Awards… (more…)
