A Brain Tickler Is Updated For Mobile Users

What’s old is new again in the form of the “rebus puzzle,” a word puzzle that uses picture to represent words. The popular game has been updated and launched as “The Rebus Show,” an interactive set of puzzles that have been perfectly crafted for Apple’s tablet, merging technology and stunning retina graphics.

Also know as a pictogram, the rebus puzzle has been around since the Middle Ages. These puzzles made their first mark in pop culture with the game show Concentration in 1958, and have also appeared on the underside of beer bottle caps.

“The Rebus Show” is presented in an old-time style, set upon a stage with animated velvety curtains, antique Underwood typewriter keys, vintage sound effects, and an original music score.

Even though “The Rebus Show’s” design gives a nod to its historical roots, the technology is state-of-the-art. The Show’s creators use high definition graphics, and twelve progressively more difficult achievement levels to bring this classic puzzle to a new audience. In addition, after each game, the player has the option of sharing the puzzle with friends and family using Twitter or email.

The Rebus Show has already generated pre-release buzz from AppAdvice - - “Luckily for AppAdvice, we’ve gotten an exclusive look at what could become the next iPad sensation.” — AppAdvice March 28, 2012
