Synonymous: Puzzle Pop Quizzes
10,000 - 50,000 downloads
- Many different ways to play with words
- Answers are familiar pop culture references
From anagrams to antonyms, this word puzzler's got you covered
Problem: the NYT crossword's too esoteric, and the scads of guess-the-mystery-reference apps are for simpletons. You're a middle of the road word lover. Your solution is Synonymous.
Choose from one of six pop culture categories (Film, Music & Artists, Songs, Television, Literature and Video Games) and you'll be launched into a barrage of wordplay puzzles. One of the strongest features of the app is that the puzzles constantly vary in style, including synonyms, antonyms, anagrams, and re-definitions. The answers should all be familiar to you (for Video Games, think "Tomb Raider" and "Pac-Man"), but the constantly changing clues keep you on your toes.
The design of the app is acceptable. There's plenty of prompting to spend for hints or to ask your FB friends for assistance, but it's easily possible to play without engaging with these aspects if you prefer.
Better With Lasers' Synonymous is worthwhile puzzling for casual word lovers.
