New iPad Game Brings Common English Sayings to Life - Humorously and Literally

Share Article

Greenstone Games announces the release of their new iPad game based on the famous "Proverbidioms" series of paintings by American artist T. E. Breitenbach. The paintings illustrate literally and humorously hundreds of everyday English idioms such as “you are what you eat” and “ants in the pants.” Try to imagine a real case of “butterflies in the stomach,” “monkey business,” or a “rat race”.

How Many Proverbidioms Can You Find?

Unlike so many games these days, Proverbidioms the App is a relaxing family game that encourages players to sit back and enjoy incredible art at their own pace, while challenging their wits as they seek to identify over 850 idioms.

The aim of the game is for players to guess as many idioms as they can from the paintings, or hunt for them from a list. It’s not as easy as it sounds.

The first Proverbidioms painting was completed in 1975 and published as a poster in 1980, when it became an instant hit, selling hundreds of thousands of copies, and appearing on television, in books, and on jigsaw puzzles. Over the years three additional Proverbidioms pictures were created. Now, as art meets the digital age, Proverbidioms the App for iPad offers an exciting new interactive experience.

Each picture can be scrolled, swiped, and zoomed up to 6X, allowing players to explore the colorful artwork in stunning HD detail. Hundreds of dynamic sounds bring all four pictures to life and truly immerse the player into the world of Proverbidioms. Once players have successfully guessed an idiom, they are rewarded with the idiom’s definition, usage, and fascinating origins, not to mention a big laugh, which makes the app educational as well as entertaining.

Greenstone Games worked very closely with the artist in designing this app, to ensure a quality, entertaining product that lives up to the spirit of the original paintings, and which is perhaps a work of art all to itself.
