Mobile game

The new mobile game is an art fan’s dream

Have you ever stood in front of your favorite Mondrian painting and wished you could reach out and touch it? If so, this adorable game might be for you. The game is called Please, Touch The Artwork and encourages users to literally touch art to solve puzzles (if that wasn’t already obvious from the title).

The game is inspired by the abstract art of Kandinsky and Malevich. It was released on January 26 and is available to download on mobile devices and PCs. If you like the sound of the game but don’t have a platform to play it on, be sure to check out our roundup of the best camera phones and treat yourself to a device.

The game was created by developer Thomas Waterzooi through Meynen Studio. Not only does the game teach users about abstract art, but it also looks beautiful with its bright palette centered around primary colors. It’s the perfect game for art nerds (like us).

There are three separate mini-games on the app, each with increasing levels of difficulty. The first teaches you about the origins of abstract art by challenging players to add colors and lines to famous paintings. In the second mini-game, you have to help two characters find each other. And in the final mini-game, you have to collect letters in the Big Apple to complete poems.
