Fun Ways to Think

Sponsored Game Review: Fun Ways to Think

March 25, 2014 - Written By Tom Dawson

Description: Fun Ways to Think is a riddle type of quiz game that utilizes obvious, yet mind-boggling images to ask you what each image means. It sounds a little bizarre, but if you think back to some of the riddles you were told as a kid, with their simple yet frustrating answers, and you’ll know what Fun Ways to Think is all about. It plays much like other popular games on the market right now, but instead of being an easy ride through, you’ll be left scratching your head through the 200 levels on offer. Read on to find out how much fun such a game really is.

How it Works: As with all Android apps or games, you’ll need to head to the Play Store to download the game before you can actually play.

The first level is pretty easy, once you let loose and think about things in a pretty obvious way, something that I personally find quite difficult.

Unlike other games like this, Fun Ways to Think won’t put the letters in the right place, which means you could end up with something completely different. That’s a good thing however, as it creates a more challenging atmosphere to the game.

Of course, the answer to this one is pretty obvious, there’s an image of a face and a book…Facebook!

Each time you get a question right, you’re given coins. These coins can be used to get hints about questions you might not know the answer to, or you just need a helping hand.

As you progress, the questions will start to get a little harder.

There are 200 levels to chew through, so there’s more than on offer to keep people playing.

Opinion: I had a lot of fun playing this, I don’t normally enjoy these sorts of games, but the simple yet frustrating questions are strangely compelling and kept drawing me in time and time again. I’m the type of thinker that approaches simple questions with the “this can’t be right” attitude, which is why these are genuinely difficult to someone who is fairly intelligent. A lot of fun these questions might be, but the game isn’t perfect. If you truly find the questions difficult, you might find yourself backed into a corner as those coins are hard to come by and each hint costs a fair bit. You only start out with 200 coins at the beginning, but you can get your hands on more if you like. Aside from that niggling thing, the game is very fun.

Ratings

  • Speed (4/5) – The app itself runs well, and there’s no speed limit on answering, which gives you the freedom to take your time.
  • Features (4/5) – On the surface, it seems like most other picture quizzes, but Fun Ways to Think is different thanks to its difficulty and its approach to picture questions.
  • Theme (4/5) – Everything looks fine here, the images are easy to make out, but it could do with some more visual flare. It does scale well no matter the resolution, however.
  • Overall (4/5) – A good game that offers enough entertainment to be considered its own game, rather than yet another picture puzzler.

Pros

  • Thanks to the subtle, yet very difficult questions, people of all intelligence will find these a little challenging.
  • A slightly different approach to a picture puzzle that works well throughout.
  • Easy to pickup and play, without having to learn many rules or whatever.
  • Hints offer a little help when stuck on a particularly tricky question.

Cons

  • Hints seem a little difficult to get hold of in the first place.
  • Questions are laid out in the same manner pretty much every time, which can grow tedious.

Conclusion: Fun Ways to Think is fun, there’s no doubting that however and even if you’ve simply had enough of these picture puzzles there’s enough on offer to keep you entertained. However, if you’re looking for a little bit of a challenge and like the idea of testing your grey matter with something completely different, then this is a good way to go. Easy to pickup and play, there’s no reason not to give Fun Ways to Think a try and see how well your brain can handle things.
