There is but a single gameplay mode with three difficulty levels. The goal is to spell words from the 4 x 4 grid of available letters in order to overpower your opponent. The longer the word, the more powerful your attack. Whereas most spelling games require that the letters that form your word be adjacent, Bee Spelled allows you to choose any of the 16 letters in any order that you desire, increasing your options greatly. You stand to reap huge scores by using the special tiles which you receive for creating long words.
