power-of-words

Just AI released Power of Words – a new voice-first game to play with Google Assistant. Power of Words is an animated scrabble game for smart displays and mobile phones. Amusive storyline grips the attention while word puzzles extend players’ vocabulary, help them with spelling, and boost working memory. 

 

Power of Words has no age limit, it’s a perfect game both for kids and adults. 

To play it, simply say ‘Okay, Google, open Power of Words’.

 

What the game is about

A tribe of cute peaceful warriors Quicks lives on a far-out planet and takes care of the Tree of Life. The tree’s roots spread out to the universe and its magic power creates harmony and produces pure energy. One day the Tree’s roots attained the lower world and awoke the gluttonous Trolls. The evil Trolls have quickly learned of the Tree’s might and decided to get it by all means. Quicks tried to repel the invaders but their force is not strong enough to cope with the enemy — only the power of words can save them.

 

Gameplay

A player takes on the role of the chosen one, whose mission is to save these creatures from the evil Trolls. Words are the weapon here – a player has to build new ones from the given sequence of symbols. Every symbol of the new word makes damage to the monster. Enemies vary in strength and attack patterns, but the player can upgrade their character’s abilities. For instance, some monsters can block a letter so that a player won’t be able to use it. But they can take a Quick and use their power – some of them can call off the monster’s blockade.

 

The game has a world map with 3 worlds and 45 levels. To pass the level and get to the new location a player has to collect a certain amount of coins. Or they can buy the pass for the game coins. Two types of currency are earned both in game progress and with direct purchases. The in-game currency can be spent to buy boosters, additional lives, and level packs. The Power of Words game demonstrates great monetization opportunities for game developers in the voice tech area.

 

Voice-first games are among the latest voice tech trends, and interactive games are something that drives the Conversational AI development. Since most of the Just AI team have a huge experience in mobile gaming development, the idea was born to match best mobile practices with Google Assistant’s interface, building a cool, addictive, and commercially successful game with smart monetization. That’s how Power of Words, an interactive game with well-designed graphics and a thoughtful narrative was built.

 

Power of Words has been created through the use of the Defold game engine and the open-source Kotlin-based framework JAICF (Just AI Conversational Framework), which is available for third-party developers and is free of charge even for commercial use.

 

When building games, we use Just AI tools. Thereby JAICP platform is responsible for NLU, and JAICF framework for backend, where all the user data, game logic and inquiry processing are stored. This gives us a guarantee of design quality. Besides, when using our own tools, we see what’s missing and we can constantly refine our tools adapting them to the needs of game developers
