We’ve had the 4 Pics 1 Word craze and ever since then many similar apps have spawned. What’s Behind seems to be the latest shot at the ever so addictive genre.

Now what clear distinguishes What’s Behind from competitors would be the simple ability to swipe at the screen. Think of puzzles like scratchcards. While all the other games in the genre have fixed images for you to guess, What’s Behind adds an element of trickery in a sense that depending on where you swipe at the screen, the puzzle might present a completely different ideology to the player. So this adds an additional degree of difficulty for players to contend with. I found this to be an extremely pleasing feature and I dare say I like this better than the original 4 Pics 1 Word.

But the crux of the game is largely similar. A keypad and a given number of letters is shown. Key in your guess to move to the next round.

There are lots of puzzle stages to complete, so don’t worry about running out anytime soon.

Of course, in case any levels get too difficult you have various power ups to tide you through. Or even the option to completely skip that stage altogether, but of course, at a cost.

This game has got me hooked, and I will definitely be back for more.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:Yes

Learning Curve:NA

Who Is It For:People who love a brain teaser

What I Like:The swipe function brings a new degree of depth to the genre

What I Don't Like:Nothing, really

Final Statement:It's all about perspective

Read the Developer's Notes:
Hours of mind-bending fun as you try to guess what the hidden picture is.

Swipe away parts of the screen to reveal bits and pieces of the hidden mystery-picture. Can you tell what it is yet?

Swipe a little more.... now can you tell?

If you run out of swipes, let's just say there are ways to get more. See if you can get farther than your friends!

Can you figure them ALL out???
