This update includes various tweaks and bug fixes.
NOTE: The first time you play through Metamorphabet, you must "unlock" each letter by finding all of the words in the previous letter. For example, you must find all the words in F to advance to G. If you are stuck, keep playing around!
If you are still stuck, drop me a line at email@example.com, and I'll be happy to help you out. (I am unable to respond to questions in the form of user reviews!)
