Capitals is a word battle game, where you compete against another person to control a board, by creating words on it.
Free online competitive word game
The game board is made of hexagons, and two of them are yours and your opponent's bases. You have to expand your hexagon territory around your base by spelling words from the letters available on the board. Get close to your opponent's base, and you can attack it and win the game.
You can play online against your Facebook or Game Center friends who also have Capitals, or against strangers. There's even a local mode, so you can play with someone on the same screen.
Setting up a new online game is simple and fast - the only limit is that you start with three lives. These replenish after an hour, or you can purchase more in-game. You spend a life when you start a new game, so once you're playing three games, you have to wait an hour to start more.
Sensible in-app purchases
Playing online works very well - but you're of course limited by how fast your opponent plays their move. Capitals is therefore a game you'll pick up now and again during the day, as you receive notifications of your opponent's moves.
Capitals keeps track of your wins, losses, and your longest word. You can share this on social networks if you're particularly proud of your abilities!
There are more in-app purchases possible. You can pay to customize the game, giving you a different icon and color, increase your lives cap to five, or buy infinite lives. These aren't intrusive, though. You can easily play Capitals for free, without feeling terribly limited.
