I’d like to introduce Iconic to you, it is a game that makes all the icons we use every day into witty puzzles. For example, two icons (one representing an iron followed by another representing a man) would result in Iron Man (the movie):
Iconic was created by celebrated indie developer, Flow Studio—located in Prague (Czech Republic). The vision for the game came out of the realization that a huge chunk of our time is spent interpreting icons: Stop, Go, Play, Shop, Smile, Like, Share. Well, what if the names of bands, movies, and celebrities could also be displayed in this way?
In the words of Petr Fodor, co-founder of Flow Studio:
People are now used to visual ‘abbreviations’ of all sorts. We read symbols much faster than text – faster than ever before. With Iconic, we’ve pushed this ‘visual language’ to the extreme and made it beautiful with minimalistic design cues. Iconic is a completely original, ridiculously fun puzzle game for pop culture fiends ready for their next challenge.
Following a successful launch on iOS and Android with more than 300 000 downloads, Iconic is coming to Windows Phone Store as a free game with in-app purchases today.

Players earn coins (the game’s currency) simply by playing the game. As coins accumulate, they can be redeemed for three types of hints (exposing a correct letter, removing an incorrect letter, or solving the entire puzzle).
