This game is, essentially, magnetic poetry for your smartphone. It’s also a barrel of fun. Players are offered a grid of words and nearly free rein to connect them to their neighbors, so long as you end up with a complete sentence in the end. Sentences don’t have to make logical sense — “Cats greet dragons outside my nightmare” — but do have to adhere to the rules of grammar. You get extra points for inspired alliteration or very long sentences.

The game is a little expensive — for a mobile game, anyway — at $3, which may set some high expectations. And it’s certainly not a flashy title, or one with stunning graphics that may make it feel more worth the price. But it is fun, absurd and oddly soothing. If that sounds right to you, then you may want to give it a spin. $2.99, for iOS and Android devices.
