Created by UK-based app developer Big Ideas Digital and published by BBC Worldwide, Say What You See consists of cryptic pictures suggesting words or phrases that can be characters, gadgets, episode titles, or monsters. Solving a puzzle rewards players with a trivia-filled fact file, including exclusive never-before-revealed secrets.
Available on iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire, it boasts retina-quality screens that have been painted by ex-Rare game studio concept artist Ryan Firchau, with the artwork taking players on a journey through three iconic Doctor Who locations: Gallifrey, Totter's Lane, and inside the TARDIS.
Big Ideas Digital director Jon Hamblin said:
There have been many Doctor Who games in the past but this is the first that covers the entire span of the show's history, referencing episodes, characters and monsters from every one of its 50 years. If this isn't the first game to appeal to old-school, hard-core fans just as much as younger fans of modern Who then I'll eat my Tom Baker scarf!The answer to the above example is given here:
Captain Jack [Cap, Tin, Jack]
There are hints for every puzzle and a sonic screwdriver function that lets players scan the canvas for hidden hint coins, plus a "Stuck" button that reveals a handful of answers to get started.
