Richard Sherman Launches Action-packed Mobile Game 'Letters of Boom'

Super Bowl champion Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks launches Letters of Boom, a simple, addictive word game that combines both the brains and brawn of the dynamic Pro Bowl cornerback.  Letters of Boom is available exclusively through the App store on iPhone for $1.99 at http://AppStore.com/LOB.

Letters of Boom challenges players to use smarts and speed to master fast anagramming, make strategic choices, and leverage bonuses for high scoring. In true Sherman form, the rules of past word games are thrown out the window. Game play features Bonus Letters, Multipliers and Alarm letters that add twists and turns that will satisfy both casual gamers and word game lovers alike.

“I’ve always loved word games, but there has never been anything out there that felt hard-hitting or extreme for me,” said Sherman. “I’m excited to be one of the first professional athletes to deliver an action-oriented word game.”

Developer Digital Kitchen worked closely with Sherman on creating all aspects of the game.

“We are excited to bring to life a mobile game that only Richard Sherman himself could imagine,” said Anthony Vitagliano, Executive Creative Director, Digital Kitchen. “His spirit, intelligence, and tenacity are all represented in the experience.”

Features of Letters of Boom:

  • Voice-over components provided by Sherman.
  • A Dictionary For The 21st Century: Letters of Boom comes installed with an updated dictionary full of slang, swagger, and customized “Shermanisms.”
  •  Take Your Words For A Spin: A Bonus Letter spins words like a slot machine with the chance of scoring insane word combos. The longer the word, the greater chance for brick destruction.

  •  Multipliers and Alarm Letters: Letter Multipliers give more power to words, allowing the player to destroy more bricks and rack up the points. In later stages, Alarm Letters crank up the intensity and make for smarter and faster play.
  • Two Game Modes: Casual Mode for casual gamers to rack up as many points with a limited number of letters. Timed Mode for pros to race against the clock and destroy more bricks.

  •  Join the Hall of Fame: Achievements put the player’s skills to the test, leader-boards ratchet-up the competition, and Sherman personally challenges players to beat his score.
