About this game

Some apps claim to increase your reading speed. We propose precisely the opposite:

How about reading Ulysses... with your fingers?

Through 4 episodes of increasing difficulty, your challenge is to wrestle with the text of James Joyce's monumental work, both mentally and physically.

By the end of your odyssey, you will have read up to four pages and 100 sentences chosen from throughout the novel. Your fingers' dexterity will have increased by an exponential factor, and your point of view on Modernist literature and experimental apps will have changed forever.

Note that He Liked Thick Word Soup differs depending whether played on a phone or a tablet. We recommend experiencing both versions!

I would greatly appreciated if more levels were made or even a whole other game! I would pay money for this game if it were deeper and longer. I played through the entire thing twice but after you play it once its not as fun because you already know the patterns and sentences. Please please please make more! I played this months ago and I never forget to check up on this app to see if there are more levels added. Thank you very much for making this amazing game. If it had more exposure I'm sure many many people would love it as much as me! This is one of the BEST games I've evor downloaded!

Unique, relaxing and educational! Minimal interface is spot on. Metaphorical 'String Theory'. Fantastical collection of texts to wonder at, smile to and create; Thank๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ you!
