Hey all! This is Jon from NeuBit. We are happy to announce the release of TYLZ for Apple TV. TYLZ is a word style board game designed to be played at home with your friends and family. It's like Scrabble but adds some extra fun elements like a timer and new tiles with each turn.

Available on the Apple TV App Store, as well as:

Google: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.neubit.tylz

Amazon FireTV: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EWKBLHO

This is NeuBit's first game, and we would love to hear your feedback. Any tips, recommendations, bugs, likes/dislikes, or issues could be reported here as I will be frequenting this forum. If you'd like a promo code please PM me. If not thank you for the support!

Enjoying the game Jon, a couple of things I'd like to see:

- the option to assign/input names rather than the emoji's
- some way of being able to see your tiles when you're not playing - maybe an accompanying iPhone app?
- the icons at the sides of the tiles, they're a little small, and not quite obvious what they are until you highlight them
- maybe have the option to have seven letters rather than six?

all very very minor points, a very enjoyable and user friendly game otherwise

HM, thank you very much for the feedback! Regarding your points:
1. This is definitely something we considered during development and opted to release v1 with just emoji's. We will look into this further.
2. So actually you don't really have tiles when it's not your turn. With each turn the current player gets a whole new set of tiles. We designed the game with this in mind to help keep the pace up.
3. Good to know. Originally we had each button's label underneath their respective icon, but opted to remove the text to reduce clutter. We will revisit this and perhaps make it more obvious somehow.
4. Good idea, we will discuss integrating this option.

Thanks again for the feedback. If anything else comes up, or if you stumble across a bug please let us know!

I feel a bit foolish not noticing it was fresh tiles each time haha! My wife takes so long on her turn though :p
