Back & Forth Features:

Back & Forth is unlike any word game you have ever played. Highly addictive, remarkably innovative this is an entirely a new twist on the word games!

Use the power of gravity, in every direction to dynamically change your board as you spell words forward, backward, vertically, horizontally & diagonally. With a simple twist of your device, gravity pulls on the tiles and drops them in new patterns. 

Rearrange your tiles further through the signature “Back & Forth” move where one simple swipe forces two tiles to swap places.
