Loren Brichter’s Atebits returns, with a very clever and fun two-player word game. I’ve been beta testing it for a few weeks, and it’s a damn good game. It’s the first game that’s made my iPhone’s first home screen in years. It’s a cross between a word game like Scrabble or Boggle and a real estate strategy game like Risk or Go. It’s addictive. (Letterpress is to Game Center what The Magazine is to Newsstand — my first reason to use it.)

Free to try, and for a buck you can unlock the full version, which allows multiple simultaneous games and a few other features. Trust me, Letterpress is going to be a sensation.
