About this game

This is a guessing game where you uncovers phrases by guessing which letters and words are in the mystery phrase. You can learn the meanings of various famous proverbs, idioms and phrases while playing the game.

The game-play is similar to the classic Hangman game, but with proverbs, idioms, wise-sayings and famous quotes. You're presented with a fill-in-the-blank letters, along with alphabet letters which you can choose to fill in the grid, to complete the mystery phrase.

Tap on a letter and if the letter is in the phrase, it will be placed in the appropriate position (or positions if the letter appear in multiple places). If the letter isn't in the phrase, then you lost a guess. You have a limited number of guesses, so try to complete the phrase without running out of guesses. If you fail to guess the phrase, don't worry, retrying is just one easy button away.

Don't know where to start guessing? There's a clue area which describes the meaning of the phrase to help you get started.

Features:
- Clean and beautiful user interface.
- Several different themes, from modern, minimalist, to classic, to suit your preferences.
- Phrase list screen, containing a list of the phrases that you have solved, along with their meanings. This is akin to a mini-dictionary of phrases which can be handy as a reference material.
- A favorite section, so you can mark your favorite proverbs and return to your favorite proverbs and idioms.
- No reason to get stuck in a puzzle because you can always retry the puzzle.
- Hundreds of phrases and proverbs to solve in a fun guessing-game format.
- Learn proverbs and idioms and their meanings while solving puzzles.
- Be intrigued by wise-words and proverbs from the past and present.

Hints:
- Use the clue as it may give you some ideas of what words are in the phrase.
- If you don't know where to start guessing, one strategy is to start with common letters, such as 'A,' 'E,' or 'I' as they tend to appear in words more in English dictionary.
- You can often reveal enough letters to guess words even if you aren't familiar with the full phrase.
- Exercise your brain while improving your English vocabulary.
- Discover and rekindle various popular proverbs and idioms.

This app uses American-English (and in some cases Britain-English) vocabulary. The proverbs and phrases are all in English (with occasional Old English words). If you're not an English speaker or if you're learning English, the app might be a fun and educational activity to enhance your vocabulary and improve your knowledge of proverbs and idioms.

Marvel at the skillful and beautiful use of words of whoever invented these proverbs and idioms. Discover the meanings of various popular proverbs and idioms, so that you know what they mean the next time you hear or read them.

Genuinely a good game. A little on the easy side. Might be better if you had to "buy" vowels with some kind of points system, instead of being able to use them whenever you want.

Thank you very much for the feedback, Matt. We didn't have any "buy" option because we want the game to be more relaxing. But I see what you mean, it might be too easy. In our design, we estimated that each level takes 2 minutes, and in that case, there's more than 10 hours of gameplay to complete all 500+ puzzles.

Thank you very much for the 5-stars and recommendation, Lisa! It's interesting that you're playing the game as two players, and we're very glad to hear that it's fun in that mode.

I would like this game if it had the option of adding my own phrases that are more familiar in the language of my relatives and friends. And also allowing me to categorise those phrases as it is done in the popular "Wheel of Fortune" game. Can you make another update by adding those options? G. Senior.

We take ratings seriously so obviously we're very disappointed with the 1-star rating. Your feature requests are interesting, but the game is just not intended to be that kind of game. Thank you for trying the game.
