I have been playing Tower mode in Spelltower and have had middling success, as I'm not sure whether it is better to go for lots of short words, a few long words, trying to use as many tiles as possible, etc.

What is the best tactic for high scoring words and games in Spelltower?

Seems that it is best to go for the long words. Check out this article about a spelltower genius.

In addition to a lot of strategies I've seen mentioned I sometimes hold off clearing entire rows using Q, X, Z, or J. My first impulse is to go for it, but I first look to see if I can get a long word that might clear another critical reregn without taking out the pink letter word. My highest scores is a little over 43000 points. I hate when the program crashes and I loose my high record.

Long words are best in Tower mode. I look for places to line up 'tion' endings then look for words to connect.
