Welcome (back) to face control! From the (mostly sane) authors of the (not particularly sane) Face Candy comes Face Word!

Face Word uses the unique Face Mapping feature of ARKit to let you control the game with your face! (Requires an iPhone or iPad with the True Depth Camera, iPhone X, XS, XS Max , XR or iPad Pro 11")

Hook the letter candies with your nose and stick your tongue out to slurp them in!

Spell out words to gain points and more time.

Play three different game modes, Normal, Relaxed and Freestyle.

Collect points to unlock new face features, customise your look and unlock a bonus game mode!

Face Word is the latest game by Strange Flavour, the award winning developers of Flick Fishing, AiRburst and Face Candy.

*** PLEASE NOTE *** Face Word uses the True Depth Camera for its Face Mapping and subsequently needs an iPhone or iPad with the True Depth Camera (iPhone X or above or iPad Pro 11")
While Face Word will play on a device without the True Depth Camera it will revert to a simple touch control mode without any camera input.

How do u put your face on it and it’s a bit boring but ok

Developer Response ,

You need to be playing on an iPhone X, XS, XR, XS Max or iPad Pro 11" (devices with the True Depth Camera) for face control. On other devices Face Word falls back to a basic compatibility mode.

My expectations was playing a game using camera face technology to control the head. Even then it would’ve only been a 5 minutes of fun. Control a head face crane with touch control to pick up letters for the selected word before the time runs out, get an incorrect letter and restart the word. Puke. Not sure how this made highlights on the App Store.

Developer Response ,

It sounds like you’re not playing on an iPhone X, XS, XR, XS Max or iPad Pro 11”. Face Word is designed to work with the True Depth camera in those devices (as mentioned in the app description)
On devices without the True Depth camera, Face Word falls back to a basic touch control system.
