Lose yourself in the world of QatQi (pronounced “cat-key”), a gorgeous and meticulously crafted word game that pleases the senses and tests the limits of your lexicon. Frustrated with the lack of innovation in other word games, indie designer Chris Garrett developed QatQi to freshen up the genre with never-before-seen gameplay, an elegant interface, dazzling art, and otherworldly music that changes as you play. In a word, it’s INSPIRED (161 points.)

QatQi offers more than just laying down tiles and reaping the rewards. Game puzzles form a “map” for players to explore, uncovering bonuses and avoiding barriers as they link letters together. It’s easy to learn, but offers a new kind of strategic depth for the genre. Bolstered by robust statistics and enticing social features, QatQi is a complete package for word game lovers eager for something new.

Beyond the innovations in gameplay and scoring, QatQi is an audiovisual tour de force with art and music that can be appreciated even without words. The game’s puzzles will have you racking your brain, but its ethereal aesthetics will leave you in a state of zen.

QatQi features:

  • Novel “map” mechanics – Explore each puzzle by laying out tiles to spell words across increasingly intricate rooms and corridors. Special squares offer big bonuses, but require some smooth wordsmithing to reach.
  • Smart, scaling difficulty – Sunday levels can be brutal, but QatQi eases players in with simple puzzles and an intuitive tutorial. If you’re backed into a corner — sometimes literally — take another try with an Undo.
  • Size up your spelling – Compare your performance with players in your city or across the globe using QatQi’s cater-made scoring system. Post automatically and view full breakdowns — all without disruptive logins or passwords.
  • Vaunt your vocab – When you top the charts in your area or drop a high-scoring word like MOUNTAINEERING (461 points), QatQi will make a personally framed screenshot for you to boast over Facebook, Twitter, email or SMS — all from within the game.
  • Data to die for – To boost your scores, explore a beautiful interactive stats page that provides key metrics after each puzzle. Even as a novice word-slinger, QatQi’s granular breakdowns will give you something to aim for.
  • Fresh content, always – QatQi offers new levels every day of the week, scaling up in difficulty from Monday to Sunday. Past levels are archived for access anytime.
  • Audiovisual bliss –
    Artist Kun Chang, who worked on Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and the hit game Osmos, lends a striking sensibility to the game board and menus. Complementing the looks is an original, spectral score that builds in complexity as you move through more difficult puzzles.

  1. What an absolutely fantastic game! The presentation is exquisite! The game play seems quite fresh and is challenging. Maybe the best IOS word game so far!

    I have only played the easiest 2 types of difficulty levels up,to now and the undo moves are hardly needed at all there. I am guessing that will change on the harder difficulty levels. Regardless, I plan on buying some undo move IAP to support this great game. I just hope the approach of making the game free and selling undo moves works out for the developers.

    While I love the way the statistics are broken down and presented, I really miss seeing which of my friends are playing QatQi and how I am doing compared to them. Game Center support could provide this, although not for every level in the game. I hope you can decide to implement this, of course separately from the current leaderboards and statistics.

    Congratulations on your great new game and best of luck!
