AlphaBear 2 is a top-notch sequel to the award-winning puzzle game from 2016.
Update Sept. 7, 2018: In honor of the start of the new school year, we're recommending the cute and colorful word puzzle game AlphaBear 2.
Alphabear 2 has launched on the Google Play Store, just in time for the start of the new school year. It offers another great word puzzle adventure that builds off of the success of the first Alphabear game, which won Google's first-ever "Standout Indie" award in 2016.
The new game features a brand new assortment of costumed bears to unlock and collect as you grow your bears by spelling words with the provided letters. All the humor and charm of the original game is back with a new story that involves cleaning up after a time machine mishap.
As you clear levels, you'll unlock new bears which give you special power-ups for your future games, along with other supplies that help you to create new costumes for some of your favorite bears. Another interesting feature that returns in the sequel is the little bear cartoons that make of use some of the words you spelled to create a quirky Mad Lib-style panel that's instantly shareable on social media.
This game is free-to-play with ads that can be removed with an in-app purchase, however, the ads aren't too intrusive which is nice. This is a nice casual word puzzle game that's perfect for players of all ages, but especially for any younger gamers who need some practice spelling words.
