Alphabear 2 Releases Suddenly For Mobile Worldwide

Alphabear, the grid-based word game about creating bears using your vocabulary skills, has suddenly gotten a sequel and released after certain test regions received it last month in preparation for a worldwide launch.

Hey people, Alphabear 2, the bigger and better sequel to the original Alphabear, is now AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE!!! Download it! https://t.co/lqYbKbtWiU :-D pic.twitter.com/qzbXgEVfrx

The original Alphabear was sort of a hybrid of crossword puzzles and addictive bear-creating shenanigans that had a light but fun social media hook to it. The sequel looks to expand on the original formula by improving all the features that were in the first game and adding smart dictionary content as a tool for helping to learn English.
