For about a year I’ve been working on another iPhone app. This one isn’t a magazine or anything like that. It’s a package of impossible games.
International Picnic Day is June 18, but you can get that outdoorsy feeling (and a little frustration) year ’round with Picnic Time – a new picnic-themed puzzle app for iPhone.
Picnic Time is no walk in the park, though. It’s a basket loaded with 48 puzzles, including tile slider games and memory matching diversions. These are high-quality time wasters, some of which are annoyingly difficult. Because of that, there are no timers, no scores, no playing against friends – these challenges are simple and painful enough without outside distractions.
With Picnic Time, you’re competing only against yourself, staring into that deep abyss of sunshine and strawberries where you’re the only one to blame. Good luck, dummy.
The impossible memory matching games include things you take on a picnic, like delicious sandwiches, deli food, blankets, vintage picnic baskets, cups, plates, beer, wine, champagne, and even some surprises, like gross meats and people we picked named Nick.
Picnic basket cases unite!
