4 Pics 1 Word (Free) is a word guessing game. It presents you with four pictures and then tasks you with guessing what specific word fits with the theme of the photos presented. It’s a simple game that really seems to be clicking with people if the App Store charts are any indication. It’s also a weird game. Most of the time, the themes are much too simple and we’re not 100 percent certain that this is the original 4 Pics 1 Word. There’s a lot of them on the App Store, some by different developers.
Anyway, we played this game today because some really awesome dudes on Twitter said we should. As you can imagine, our playthrough had less to do with the actual mechanics of the game than it did with puzzling out why this thing is so popular.
