What's it about?
Players are shown four seemingly different pictures and must figure out the common theme by typing a word from a collection of 12 letters at the bottom of the screen. Once they've deduced the one-word solution, they earn a few coins and are shown the next set of photos. When the theme proves difficult, players can either remove letters from the 12 -- or have one filled in on the solution.
Is it any good?
4 PICS 1 WORD is hardly the most mentally stimulating puzzle game on the market -- and there are other games that offer the same sort of gameplay -- but it's catchy nonetheless. Figuring out the answers is generally pretty easy, but when you have to stop and think, there's a sense of triumph in figuring it out.
Better still, the lack of a registration requirement is refreshing, and the game does have that "one more turn" addictive quality that so many good titles possess. Ultimately, though, it might prove too confusing for younger players and too easy for older ones.
