The App Store is a goldmine of weird and wonderful creations, and although we see plenty of intuitive apps and wonderfully enticing games, sometimes an app comes along so novel that it just has to get a mention. If you’ve seen some of the official iPhone 5c cases, you’ll know that there’s one featuring quite a few circular holes on the back. In many ways, it could resemble a Connect 4 board, and thanks to the nous of one developer, the Hasbro classic has been remade to work in conjunction with the new case. Details after the break.
Although the holes in the case are found to the rear, one can simply flip the case back-to-front, which then facilitates a physical Connect 4 board. From there, competitors can enjoy the iconic title as if it were a real Connect 4 board, and although the original, touch-friendly title is still pretty good fun, this neat little case trick is a neat amalgam of classic and contemporary.
Of course, you will need the iPhone 5c case in order to enjoy this alternative take on Connect 4, but the good news is, it does work with a slew of different iPhones. Thanks to the fact that the iPhone 5c is of similar size to both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5, you can easily slip the case on either device without too much issue, since the material is flexible. Obviously, it won’t be as snug a fit on smaller devices like the iPhone 4 or 4s, but if you just so happen to be in ownership of one of the three newer handsets on the market, you and your friends could be enjoying a great game of Connect 4 — 2013 style!
The app is called Flipcase, and is absolutely free of charge to interested parties. If you happen to own the case, you should definitely give this app a download, and if you do manage to get a game against one of your buddies, be sure not to lose. Connect 4 is serious business, you know.
