STOCKHOLM, May 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/:Do you think you’re good at word games? Got a mind for seeing the obvious and not easily getting stuck in brain games? Well think again. As over 100 000 users who downloaded the game in its first 2 days will tell you, things are not always as easy as they might seem in “Words in a Pic”. You will get stuck. And what’s worse, you will not be able to put your phone down until you get “unstuck”.
“Words in a Pic” is the latest release from Swedish social & mobile gaming outfit WeAreQiiwi Interactive. The goal of the game is to find the words that match a picture. Each picture has three words associated with it. The player gets all the letters needed to find the words, in a random and mixed-up order, and then needs to puzzle them together to create the correct words for the picture. When you get the words right, you unlock new levels and get rewarded with trophies and coins.
Sounds pretty simple right? Well, yes. And no. Thousands of players all over the world get stuck on levels every day, and use the help buttons in the game asking their friends on Facebook and Instagram to help them solve the word puzzle. Players can also use earned coins to uncover letters and get other clues that will help them out.
Released less than a week ago, the mobile game generated over 100 000 downloads in its first 2 days and was the #1 free app on the AppStore in Germany, Finland, Denmark and Sweden. “Words in a Pic” is available in 9 different languages: English, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, German, French, Italian, Dutch and Spanish. The game is available on both iOS and Android, as well as Facebook for desktop game-play.
WeAreQiiwi Interactive CEO, Andreas Bergström, comments on the recent success:
“We’re delighted to see how well ‘Words in a Pic’ has been received in so many different countries. It shows that a really good game is universal and will appeal to people all over the world. New levels will be added every week, we intend to keep the world searching for words for a very long time.”
