4 Pics 1 Word

You see, there's 4 related pictures and you have to guess the word.

It is a pretty simple concept but entertaining for what it is: A casual game you play on the bus or while waiting for something to happen. The game shows you four pictures, a bunch of letters, and some slots for those letters, then you use them to type in the word that goes with all the pictures. Solid brain teaser and one your mom probably still loves to play.

At this point, it's been a million years since I downloaded this and actually played it, but opening it up in the modern era, there's a lot more going on than I remember. The haptic feedback is maybe a bit over the top but kind of fun. There's a number of currencies and things to pay for, of course. There are Daily Puzzles and a minigame that is just Wordle, apparently? They'll also keep track of your "IQ" which all the mobile ads tell me is very important. It has all the little dopamine triggers that casual players love interspersed between ads for other puzzle games that are basically the same quick-paced, microtransaction-filled addictions harvesting our data to sell us more addictions...

At any rate, if you're waiting for your appointment or you just need to see a lot of stock photography, this game could be a choice you make.

If you like this page, you can buy me a coffee.
