‘Letters & Sodas’ is a Tile-Sliding Puzzle Mixed with a Word Game, Coming March 28th

We’ve all played a tile-sliding puzzle before, right? I’m not talking about a mobile game, but those physical games that are a grid of different tiles with one blank spot, and it was your job to slide the tiles around to either form a complete image, or put numbers in order, or stuff like that. Here’s a gif from Wikipedia if you’re lost as to what I’m talking about. Anyway, I loved those puzzles when I was a kid, and we’ve even seen developers bring the experience to the digital world with various mobile games over the years. But Frosty Pop Corps. is doing one better and mixing the tile-sliding puzzler with a word game with their upcoming Letters & Sodas.

As you can see, your job is to slide the letters around the board and ultimately spell whatever four-letter word the game is asking you to. You’ll have the expected constraints of space on the game board, but since this is a digital game you also need to contend with more video gamey things like tiles that need to be unlocked, bombs, and even portals. There’s also a limited number of moves you can use for each word so you can’t just go sliding willy nilly until you get it right. Letters & Sodas will initially ship with 130 levels, but Frosty Pop is hoping to be able to update the game post-release and if it’s popular enough would like to add all 4,000-ish four-letter words in the English language. I always enjoy the stuff from Frosty Pop, and I love both sliding puzzles and word games, so I’m really looking forward to Letters & Sodas when it launches later this month.
