About This, That & the Other

The puzzles in This That were all designed to have solutions that contain common word pairs or word triples. Many of the answers are pulled from current events or pop culture while others are just objects or ideas that are commonly associated with each other, e.g. "Green Eggs & Ham," "Shock & Awe," or "Larry & Curly & Moe."

Puzzles begin with several warm-up categories that gradually increase in difficulty, until you're ready to venture out on your own and choose your own subjects. The game is loaded with 45 training puzzles, plus 90 additional puzzles in selectable categories.

How to Play

Tapping letter tiles in the GAMEBOARD will make those letters appear in the ANSWER area. To remove letters from the ANSWER area, tap the corresponding letter tile in the GAMEBOARD area. Each puzzle consists of a word set of two or three words that are commonly associated with each other in some way. Keep an eye on both the clue and the title to help you solve each puzzle, and use the Reveal and Remove hints if you get stuck.

The first three puzzle packs are unlocked by completing the previous pack. After that, you'll choose which puzzle packs to unlock with your stars. After a puzzle pack is unlocked, you'll unlock each puzzle in succession by solving the preceding one. Each puzzle you solve earns you stars, and each hint you use consumes stars, so use them wisely to make sure that you have enough to unlock the next puzzle pack. You can always get more by tapping the star icon in the upper corner of game screens.


This, That & the Other was built with the Android SDK and Android Studio. It's available through Google Play for Android devices. It's no longer being actively maintained, and the In-app purchase library used in the game has since been deprecated, so I'd expect Google to remove it from the Play Store by the end of 2021.

And this battle shall be the delicious mustard on that bread! The mustard of your doom!
