Every now and then a new game hits the App Store or Google Play and takes the world by storm, and this year it is expected to be the 4 Pics 1 Word game, which is said to be very similar to RedSpell’s What’s the Word? However, the so-called rip off title is doing far better than the original, and there are now claims that the 4 Pics 1 Word app could be the next Draw Something, which as we know was a huge hit from last year.
I’ve never brought myself to play the game, but I have seen countless friends on Facebook struggling to find the answers and so feel the need to turn to their friends for help. It’s this social awareness that helps make games like this far more popular, and we’re sure that developer LOTUM GmbH is not complaining about that.
The premise of the app is seeing a screenshot of four images all of which have something in common, which you do by filling in the letters available to you. However, to make the game a little tougher there are far more letters than needed, so not your simple anagram then. If you guess correctly you will be rewarded with coins and then you can move on to the next level.
While 4 Pics 1 Word can be very difficult at times, it’s easy to see why it can become so addictive. However, it does not have the longevity as Draw Something, and so you could find yourself getting bored with it in a short amount of time.
Have you completed 4 Pics 1 Word yet, and if so what would you like to see in the next update?
