Anagrams meets Word Search, with a sprinkle of Crosswords.
Typeshift is the modern anagram puzzle; re-imagined from the ground up, combining wordplay, modern game design, and a mobile-first approach.
In most anagram games, you search for new combinations within a single word, but in Typeshift, you search within three to five words stacked & scrambled up together. Shift columns of letters up and down as you try to spell words in the center row. Play continues until you used all letters in a puzzle at least once.
Special Clue Puzzles combine Crosswords with Anagrams as you match clever clues provided by Typeshift's various puzzle authors.
- Daily Word Game Play with Global Leaderboards -
Typeshift features a free daily challenge with global leaderboards. The easiest challenge for the week appears on Monday, and progressively challenging puzzles build throughout the week.

HistoryTypeshift continues my quest to re-imagine classic newspaper games in the digital era. Where SpellTower tackled word search and Really Bad Chess handled chess puzzles, Typeshift re-examines Anagrams and Crosswords.
Typeshift has been a joy to develop, and I hope you have as much fun playing it as I had making it. As always, thanks so much for your support!
