This is no longer a consulting business. I ran Smithsoft from 2012 to 2021, consulting and building apps. Below is archived content from those days.

Unscramble your way to victory in this free, fast paced, brain teasing game. Use your skills and help Pandora defend cities of classic books by unscrambling words and defeating monsters until no more remain.


Don’t let the monsters destroy your town! With 20 levels of fun – the challenge has been set. Luckily Pandora has some clues available from her magical library to give you a helping hand.

What some of our testers had to say:
