ThinkInvisible is a great app for people who love Pictionary. The game takes iconic images, mainly from pop culture, and reveals only little bits and pieces of them at a time. Then, without the full image being revealed, players have to guess what the image is.

Initially only a small circle of an image is revealed and there are dashed lines indicating the letters of the word. Players can tap the screen for either a piece of the image to be revealed or for a letter to be revealed. Whether a piece of the image is exposed or a letter is revealed is not up to the player. Also, after a few taps, no more pieces of the image or letters will be revealed. Players earn point from how many times they tap to reveal part of the image or a letter. The more taps, the lower the points. Players can use the points they accumulate from solving the puzzles to reveal an answer if needed.

The game only has 2 sets of pictures included by default. Players can get a bonus set for free by sharing the game on Facebook and can purchase additional sets for a dollar. Considering the game is free, I can’t be too upset that only two sets are included, and the two free sets definitely gave me a good sense of the game play. However, I would have liked one or two more sets for free, especially since the first set is so easy. Another slight annoyance is that misspelling the correct word doesn’t cut it, so it is definitely handy to have some way to spell check words.

ThinkVisible is a novel game that isn’t copy of any other game out there. Anyone who really likes Pictionary or Draw Something, will really enjoy this game. Definitely download ThinkInvisible and play the two sets included for free(three if the set players get for sharing on Facebook is included). If the game is fun then consider purchasing the additional sets, since the default sets don’t provide enough content.
