Speed is the name of the game in Clamor, as those who have played for a while know. With bonus points awarded for each second left on the clock, as well as heft round bonuses, more games are won through finishing a round early than any other way. With this in mind, here's a few tips to dramatically cut down your time, increase your score, and beat up on your competitors:
The right combination of power-ups is essential. Everyone has their favorite combinations, so make sure to experiment with mixing and matching. My go-to combo is two Freezes and a Swap.
Two- and three-letter words
A fairly comprehensive knowledge of legal two- and three-letter words can help you get out of a tight spot, and can dramatically increase the speed with which you can place letters onto the board. I have had many games where the majority of the words I create consist of these small words. Words such "qi," "za," and "xi" can also help you unload these difficult letters.
Experiment with both game modes
Some people play more quickly in Drag Mode, others in Tap Mode. I encourage you to play with both modes, in order to see which one works most effectively works with your play style.
Move letters around
Don't forget that you can move letters around after they've been placed on the board. This can help get you out of a tight spot. Also, switching two letters is as easy as tapping one then tapping the other, which makes quick work of an innocent mistake.
These are a few tips and hints that I've found have helped improve my time and score. Practicing them should help you improve your game as well. I look forward to seeing you in the future. As always, feel free to challenge me. My username is "Jedediah."
