Game Description:


Twist again with TextTwist 2, the incredible sequel to one of the most popular word games of all time. Shuffle letters to form words in three all-new game modes and two of your favourites! Find the word that uses all of the letters as fast as you can in Lightning mode, complete a crossword puzzle using a limited number of letters in Crossword mode, or try the new daily challenge in Word of the Day mode featuring a new group of letters every day!


Strategy (Important)


To make this game easy as possible firstly go into options and change the option to 5 letters and use the Word Unscrambler found here. I would suggest you open it in a new window to prevent having to jump between tabs continuously.



ACHIEVEMENTS


Rock Steady - 5

Solve all words in one round with no twisting in Unlimited, Standard or Daily Word.


See 'Knock Out'.



High Five - 1

Solve five words without twisting in Unlimited, Standard, Daily Word or Letter Mania.


See 'Knock Out'.



On a Roll - 2

Solve ten words without twisting in Unlimited, Standard, Daily Word or Letter Mania.


See 'Knock Out'.



Knock Out - 3

Solve twenty words without twisting in Unlimited, Standard, Daily Word or Letter Mania.


Start up a game of Unlimited and just use the word unscrambler. Starting from the smallest words work your way up through the words until all words are finished for that round. Continue to the next round and do the same thing. You should hit twenty words by the end of the second round or by the start of the third round. You will also unlock 'Rock Steady' using this method.



Brainstorm - 5

Solve a Lightning round without twisting.


Just finish the round without hitting the Twist button. Follow the description in 'Lighting Bolt'.



Lightning Bolt - 30

Complete a Lightning round with no hints given.


Once started make a quick mental note of the letters you have and then pause the game by pushing the back button or the Menu button. Now use the word unscrambler to solve the anagram and continue to the next word repeating the process until the round is complete. You will also unlock 'Brainstorm' by doing this.



Twisted - 5

Twist a 1000 times.


Start a game of Unlimited and just keeping tapping the Twist button until the achievement pops.



Swift Speller - 5

Complete a round in less than five seconds in Unlimited, Standard or Daily Word.


Start a game of Standard and just try and work out the largest word straight away. You need to work it out before the clock at the top reaches 1:55. If you cannot get it, quit out and restart. Pausing the game will not work.

Some people are reporting that this achievement takes several attempts to unlock even when getting the bingo word by 1:57.



Bingo Blaster - 5

Complete only Bingo words in five levels in a row in Unlimited or Standard.


See 'Bingo Bonkers'.



Bingo Boss - 10

Complete only Bingo words in ten levels in a row in Unlimited or Standard.


See 'Bingo Bonkers'.



Bingo Bonkers - 20

Complete only Bingo words in twenty levels in a row in Unlimited or Standard.


Start up a game of Unlimited and just use the word unscrambler and enter the Bingo word first. This is the word with the most letters denoted by the gold stars. This allows you to skip straight to the next round. Just repeat for each round. Once you have twenty rounds complete the achievement will pop but continue for another ten rounds as this is a requirement for the 'Grand Master' achievement.

This achievement can also be obtained in the other games modes such as lighting where you just need to solve the twenty words in a row (i.e. not going to the next round).



Word Nerd - 10

Spell 1000 words.


See 'Word Herder'.



Word Herder - 20

Spell 5000 words.


Using the word unscrambler I manage about 10 words a minute so allowing for pauses, time between games, etc 5000 will probably take anywhere from 10-15 hours.



Apprentice - 5

Complete 5 rounds in all game modes.


See 'Grand Master'.



Journeyman - 10

Complete 10 rounds in all game modes.


See 'Grand Master'.



Grand Master - 30

Complete 30 rounds in all game modes.


For this you will need to complete 30 rounds of each game mode so it might be a good idea to grab a pen and piece of paper to mark off what you've done. For Standard and Unlimited this is quite easy as you need to do is fill in the Bingo word first and you can then skip straight to the next round. Repeat until you have 30 completed. For Letter Mania and Lighting this is not so simple as you will have to complete each round finishing all words. For Daily Word although you can finish the round quickly like Standard and Unlimited but you are limited to one game per day although there is a workaround. You can play this mode over and over without time glitching by changing the language in the options, and then changing back to English again.



Roundabout - 4

Complete a round in all game modes.


This is very easy, just complete a full round of each game mode.



Letter Loon - 5

Solve ten words in Letter Mania.


See 'Nutty Cake'.



Letter Maniac - 5

Solve twenty words in Letter Mania.


See 'Nutty Cake'.



Nutty Cake - 5

Complete an entire round of Letter Mania.


Just use the Word Unscrambler to solve the anagrams. Finish all the words to finish the round. Continue to play to reach 10 words to unlock 'Letter Loon' and 20 words for 'Letter Maniac'.

I've got the game already. Most out in the UK/Europe so you should be able to get it. Just search 'TextTwist' on your phones marketplace.

Looks like this game will take a month to complete if you can only play one round of daily word a day.

I got the Swift Speller achievement. What I did was started a new round of standard mode so I could keep an eye on the time. I started a new round so the longest word would only be about 5 letters. As soon as the round started I made a quick mental note of the letters and immediately hit the power/sleep button. I put the letters in the anagram solver, woke my phone up, and put the longest word in as quick as I could. I have the HTC Surround, I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

How did you pause the game? I tried Bing button, Menu and Give Up and they did not work. How exactly did you do it?

The menu button is the pause button.

EDIT: Also, the minimum time for this game will have to be 30 days because i moved my phone's day forward a day (1/19/12/) and back a day (1/17/12) and it said both times that i have already completed the puzzle for today and to come back tomorrow.

You just tap the back button. Also the menu button worked for me.

Back button doesn't work either, at least for me. When the round starts, I memorize all 6 letters, hit the back button, unscramble the word, resume the game and input the word, and repeat the process for the other words.

That's how you did it right? No dice for me...
