Lilemma_ – A Vacation Game
You may have never heard of the Lilemma_the_game, but it looks as though it’s going to be a popular addition to the game room over the next couple of years. Many people are enjoying Lilemma_ because they enjoy playing fun word games, as well as making their own relaxing vacation pictures. The game is a mixture of luck and skill, and is currently one of the most popular free word games on Facebook. The game was originally developed by Appsarat, a company that creates “immersive mobile gaming”. I’m not sure why they chose to make a game about a lounge chair, but it sure is fun to play.
If you have any doubt about how this game works, it is simple. Just like many word games, you click on a word that you are interested in and then release it. If you happen to land on a word that has an ‘A’ in it, you don’t have to release it; you just move on to your next word. The challenge is to match the correct spelling of words with the pictures that are given, as those pictures are usually what will appear on your vacation postcard.
Lilemma_ appears to be very popular with girls, and could easily become a children’s game. It is possible that the developers of the game saw the popularity of Facebook on the platform and decided to port it to there. Since it is a Facebook game, it may very well show up on Facebook soon enough. Since Facebook is probably where most people keep their personal vacation photos, it would make sense for them to include it.
The lilemma_ app costs nothing and can be played on any smartphone, such as iPhone and Blackberry. As with most apps on Facebook, you need to have an account with the social networking giant in order to be able to play it. Once you have logged in, you can then choose which vacations you would like to take and start the game. It seems to be geared more towards adults, but maybe a little for children as well.
The interface of the game is pretty basic and includes basic colors and shapes, as well as other embellishments. However, the icons do not change when you change the theme, so even though they look similar, they are not really the same. The icons are also very small, which can make it difficult for a child to learn how to use the different icons to complete the correct picture. This could also mean that the game will take longer to load, since it takes a long time to scroll through a large list of items.
Despite these issues, Lilemma_ is still in its developmental stages and looks like it will be worth checking out on Facebook. If you enjoy playing flash games on Facebook, then this app should interest you. Plus, it looks like it will be a lot of fun. The graphics are cute, the interface easy to use and enjoyable, and most of all, the vacation theme is perfect for this summer!
