Zach Gage, the developer behind the massive word game SpellTower, is releasing a new word puzzle game Typeshift for iOS, on March 18.

In Typeshift, players have to move columns of letters up and down to spell out words in the center row. The goal is to spell words using all of the letters from those column. A clue puzzle mode will give solvers a hint, similar to a Crossword, that will lead toward what the solution.

Typeshift will have a daily puzzle feature, with challenges ramping up in difficulty throughout the week, coming to a head on Sundays.

Merriam-Webster has partnered with Gage to launch a browser-based version of the puzzler on the dictionary company’s website, and is also scheduled to launch on March 18. The partnership extends to Merriam-Webster’s word database, letting Gage tap into the vast word bank to use in his games.

Gage began teasing his latest project a last week, releasing anagram and its unique style of puzzles, acting as both a promotional vehicle and tutorial.
