Stitchem Words

The app Store is literally overflowing with puzzle game, and for every good puzzler there seems to be 15 bad ones. How do you separate yourself from the pack? Well the developer of Stichem Words might have just found the answer.

stitchem1The objective of Stichem Words is to make words out of a set of picture icons.  Icons represent the exact words and not homophones  (a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning).

Google Ads:

Points are awarded for for each successful combination of words constructed out of letters and pictures. For example one the first level you will see a picture of a man, and a milk crate. Putting these two icons together will create the word Milk Man. You than press the stitch it button to complete one pair of words.

Additional points are awarded for making quick words, finding hidden words, creating long words, or avoiding having to use hints.

Displayed on your screen are the placeholders for the words, and if you pay attention you will notice that square blocks represent pictures while circles represent actual letters. Knowing this will help you figure out what combination of icons are needed in later levels!

If you find yourself stuck you can use up to three hints per level. You also have the ability to shuffle the pictures and words around on the screen which can sometimes help to jog your memory, and lead to a few more completions.

You are not required to complete each and every word on the level, though you will have to score enough points on each level to open the end level option.

As you progress you will get more letters, and Icons on the screen and you will have to use the arrows on the screen to move back and forth between the sets of icons.

stitchem2Located on the right side of the screen is a Score meter which fills up and drains based upon the number of hints and completed puzzles per level.

One nice feature is the ability for more than one person to play the game with up to five save slots. There isn’t much replay ability in the game after you have completed some levels as the words never seem to mix it up. There are a set of words for each level and once you figure those out your not left guessing much. The icons, and letters are the same each time you play the game. I would like to see some additional words put in so if I start the game again there is some variation on the words.

There is a nice little music theme playing throughout each level, however it gets quite annoying after 2/3 levels. Might be nice to mix in a few tracks for these games that require more than a few minutes on each level. Or simply loop into a music less segment for 45 seconds before starting again.

Overall Stitchem Words is a unique twist in a ever growing puzzle market, and fans of these types of games would do well to give this game a play through. I is very challenging the first time through, and if the developer can add additional words, and mix the levels up some with a future patch to add to the replayability factor. This could be one of the better puzzle games on the market. At $.99 this is a great bargain for this game.
