Just Kidding Studios Releases 21 Ice Clues


In this game produced by Just Kidding Studios, the player is given a list of clues to solve. Each clue's answer is a single word, ranging from four letters long and up. These answers are built by combining letter blocks which are stacked below the clue list. Ultimately, the answers are all right in front of you, but it's up to you to find them!

When a word is guessed correctly, Icy the Penguin slides through and clears the clue away. The used letter blocks also disappear, allowing more blocks to drop down. When all of its needed letter blocks are available, a clue will change from grey to white and become solvable. There is a total of twenty-one clues per puzzle. Once every clue has been answered and the play field is clear, the player earns a gold star for that puzzle and can choose to continue to another incomplete puzzle.

21 Ice Clues can be learned to play in seconds with its easy to use interface. It's a breeze to open the game on your phone while waiting in line or lounging on the couch, solve a few clues, and then come back to it later. 

Players of 21 Ice Clues enjoy the following features:

  • 21 clues per puzzle
  • 252 clues per puzzle set (wow!)
  • auto save
  • no time limit - play at your own speed
  • unlimited guesses
  • puzzle progress bars
  • play the puzzles in any order
  • star rewards for puzzle completion

21 Ice Clues can be downloaded for free in the Google Play Store. The first puzzle set is free to play and additional puzzles are available for $.99, each containing a whopping 252 clues apiece! That's enough to keep any word game fan busy for a while!
