Lexiv, The Word City Builder
Review Roundup

Lexiv has been getting some great reviews in weeks following its release! Take a look at a few of them here:

"I really can’t sing the praises of Lexiv enough, the game offers hours upon hours of deeply cerebral fun. It’s RPG-style player levelling gives you more than enough of a reason to come back time and time again and the game, whilst taxing, is never a chore. The satisfaction of beating a level in Lexiv is rewarding in the classic sense as well as giving you the vague feeling that you learnt something." -- The Indie Game Magazine, 90%

"I’ve been hard on Lexiv, so I should probably make it more clear that I really, really liked this game. It’s so original, yet such an obvious evolutionary step for the game of Scrabble that I’m actually surprised nothing like it has come along." -- Indie Gamer Chick

"Honestly, I love this game, I love it a lot." -- XNA Roundup

"Lexiv is 3 games in one. It’s Scrabble, first and foremost, even the quickest glance at the screenshots peppering this page will tell you that. Lexiv is also Sim City and Tower Defense, and rather than simply being a gimmick it actually pulls off being all 3 at once with a startling display of elegance. And this is from a guy who is quite possibly the worst scrabbler ever." -- XboxHornet
