Letterpress [iTunes link], his new iPhone app, is a turn-based multiplayer word game that prompts users to make words from a 5-by-5 grid of letters.

Daily iPhone App: Eyelord has your fill of squishy orb matching

Eyelord is the latest title from the folks at Secret Exit, whose game Zen Bound and its sequel you probably know well. Zen Bound was a well-produced game with a really excellent design, and Eyelord follows that trend, with a simple mechanic held up by triple-A quality production.
