Undiscovered App #63: What's Playing - Guess The Word

What's Playing - Guess the wordYou could get lost in the huge number of word games out there, but there's one worth picking out from the lot. Today's Undiscovered App, called What's Playing - Guess The Word from Violet Arts, takes the word guessing game concept and adds a lovely twist to it.

Instead of the usual static pictures added with lame filters that you see on so many games, this one uses hand-drawn animations, set up so you get three of them, and it plays on an endless loop to give you as many chances as you need to guess the word. There's some charming background music that gives an idyllic feel while you play, plus you can get some hints if you need a little help along the way by using up some Stars that you bank with each successful word guess.



This is a very well-designed game, and best of all it's free to download. There's a small ad strip at the very bottom that doesn't get in the way of the game, plus there's IAPs if you want to buy some more Stars for additional hints. While so many games are easily forgettable, What's Playing - Guess The Word is one of the few I've kept coming back to because of its simplicity and charm, plus it has 700 words to guess from, so you'll be plenty entertained. We highly recommend this, and others who've played it have been similarly impressed, as it has an average rating of 4.5 stars from 184 reviews.
