Let’s be frank, some days, particularly Friday are a bit of a slog. You’re ready to call it a day, but it’s still too far away to celebrate the weekend. The quest for witty ways to make the day go faster is wearing thin and to be honest, it’s getting boring.

Fortunately, design agency Wildish&co and Synth Media have come up with a witty way to get through tricky days like this and as well as being highly addictive, it doesn’t cost a thing.

Specially designed for the iPhone, the app based on the viral minimalist Film Alphabet posters quizzes your film knowledge and has been described as an ‘instant pub table winner’. Joe McCabe, Creative Director of Synth comments: “Film Alphabets is built to be dead simple, intuitive and fun. The aim was always to have such a simple user experience that little to no instructions were needed; people can just pick up and start playing right away“

The idea was originally produced as part of the popular ‘Friday project, where crew at Wildish&co challenged themselves to make ‘pretty and witty’ things on a Friday.

No movie genre is safe from the quiz which features everything from action adventure (Indiana Jones) to laugh out loud comedy like The Hangover. It works like hangman, but on your iPhone. The aim is to guess the movie, but unlike the traditional childhood game, it’s a ‘three strikes and out’ approach. The interface is minimal so you won’t find any ads, game requests or anything else for that matter. No harm of being put off your game by annoying popups.

While there is no real prize, you do score major bragging rights against your friends and can be crowned movie buff king. Bragging rights aside, Film Alphabet is majorly addictive and you may find yourself glued to your phone for the unforeseeable future. Our advice, don’t play it on the last tube home, we can’t be held responsible for you missing your stop.
