Developer: Silas Faltus
Website: spellminer.com
Retailers: App Store

Released: July 2017
Description:
SpellMiner is an addictively fun, fast-paced word game loaded with power-ups and bonuses! Swipe the letters to clear words and mine deeper for more gold and bonuses. Spell longer words to spawn power letters that create massive explosions, rain down fire, boost your point multiplier, or freeze gameplay to give you extra time. Work your fingers quickly to build up a word combo for gold bonuses and a huge score that will leave your opponent astonished. Strategically use the point multiplier letters to create words worth a vast number of points.

Each round of gameplay flies by in two minutes. Challenge a friend or an auto-match opponent to a 3 round match and take your turns whenever you have a couple of minutes free. Each week, battle with your tourney friends for the top tourney round score. The winner takes the coin pot, along with bragging rights of course!

Loaded with player and round stats and packed with achievements that will challenge even the nimblest of finger and mind!

The new themes in RapidWeaver are all responsive, and to help you imagine your site at different sizes you can resize the preview area to any width you like. There’s even handy presets for iPhone and iPad widths.

Re-usable Snippets
The snippets window lets you save frequently-used pieces of code and easily re-use them on multiple projects.

What’s New in RapidWeaver 7?

Built-in Web Server
Allows you to preview your entire site locally in a browser without having to export it

SEO Health Check
RapidWeaver will analyse your site and will highlight steps you can take to improve SEO.

Banner Images
In themes that support this new feature, you can now add a custom banner image to your site, and customise it on each page. Themes that support this feature also include optimal image dimensions to help you size images.

4 Responsive New Themes
Designed by Realmac, Elixir Graphics, MultiThemes, and Yuzool!

New, modern OS X sidebar
With translucency, that shows all your pages, resources and settings in one location.

Portable Documents
You can now choose to store resources inside your RapidWeaver document, enabling you to take the project between multiple Macs.

Multiple Publishing Locations
If you need to publish projects to multiple locations, you can set these up in your project, and choose the server when publishing. RapidWeaver’s smart publishing will also keep track of changes across multiple publishing locations.

Local Publishing
The “Export” feature is something we’ve always felt should be considered a way of publishing your site, and now it is!

Project Backup
RapidWeaver can optionally create a ZIP file of your project, and upload it to your server when publishing. The file is added to a “secret” location on your server, meaning that while it is downloadable by anyone who knows the cryptic web address, it’s tricky to guess that web address.

User-selectable Addons Folder
Need to save your addons in a custom location? RapidWeaver 7 allows you to do this, and will move your addons for you! Great if you’re working between machines.

Minified Javascript and CSS
RapidWeaver can now optimise your CSS and Javascript by minifying it. Previously, RapidWeaver would remove some whitespace, but this time we’re actually optimising it to be as quick to download and apply to your pages as possible.
