4 Pics 1 Word: What's The Word Review

Solve Pictionary-style word puzzles on your Android smartphone or tablet.

A recent trend in the Android Play Store seems to be puzzle games, especially those that involve guessing words based on pictures. Combining ideas from Charades and Hangman, 4 Pics 1 Word: What's The Word keeps the user coming back for more. It is challenging yet easy enough to play, and it functions smoothly.

4 Pics 1 Word: What's The Word displays a light gray background with vibrant and clear graphics. The basic rules of this game are quite simple: Four full-color pictures occupy the top half of the screen. These four images have something in common. Below them is a hangman-style puzzle. The blanks that are shown represent the number of letters in the solution, and the solution is the common theme within the pictures. The final element of the puzzle is a selection of letters at the bottom of the screen. The user must select these letters and place them in the appropriate place. While this game functions well and is designed attractively, there is nothing new or original about it, as there are many other games of this type already available.

4 Pics 1 Word: What's The Word is suitable for users who like addictive puzzle games. They will find its simplicity refreshing and the gameplay, challenging. While there are no negative aspects to this game, there are no creative twists either that would make it stand out from the crowd.
