Bird’s the Word is a novel word search game for MindJolt/SGN. Probably one of the first mobile games to really use Facebook integration to good effect – players could challenge each other, earn achievements and see their ranking amongst their friends.
We partnered with Moyo Studios, who presented a lovely flat-shaded vector cartoon style. The only downside to this game was the licensing of the “Bird’s the Word” theme tune, which gradually drove us all insane during development!
We also ported the project to Flash, so we could offer the game on the Facebook site itself. Both mobile and Facebook versions were really popular, and the mobile version pushed the 1st-gen iPhone and iPad hardware to the limit.
