Victory is ever sweeter when it’s stolen from your opponent’s hands!

What the Shell by LITE Games and Ludisto is a new kind of board game that gives you amazing satisfaction. Oh No, this ain’t your traditional five-in-a-row game, but an original invention that is fast-paced, deeply strategic and dynamic. Nothing is inevitable, and the game is never won or lost until the very last moment.

"Simultaneous play boosts the fun of this intuitive, yet surprisingly deep board game."
- Matthias Titze, producer of Clarc, winner of 2014 Best Mobile Game (German Computer Game Award)

"Definitely offers fun and challenging gameplay for adults."
- Marcus Schwarten, iPlayApps

Our unique twist of simultaneous play makes every turn exciting and unpredictable. If both players go for the same space, a neutral egg blocks the space. Players can capture each other’s turtles, which also allows them to claim a neutral egg. This encourages aggressive play and makes for dynamic back-and-forth gameplay.

Enjoy the look on your friend’s face when your capture leads to a chain combo that devastates their beautifully set up position. What the Shell’s simple yet deep gameplay will keep you on your toes and always coming back for more! Challenge a friend today in this modern battle of wits.

If you like games like Four in a Row, Othello and match three games you will love playing What The Shell.

• Dynamic and original gameplay
• Gorgeous graphics and music
• Play a friend: on two devices or even just one
• Practice against different AI difficulties

While this game was primarily created for adults, children and teens also love this fast-paced and challenging game, which encourages strategic thinking skills and builds self-confidence.

The app is available in high-quality localizations for the following languages: English, German, Japanese & Esperanto

One of my favorite mobile games

I don’t play mobile games as often as I used to, and when I do, I don’t typically play games like this. But boy is this one addicting when I get into it. There’s a little learning curve as you understand the ways of playing well, but you quickly build skill. It’s fun with a bot, and good lord do I have a hard time putting it down if I’m playing it with a friend.

Relaxing & Challenging

The graphics & music set a zen mood for this entertaining game. You’ll find yourself duped one game and victorious the next. It’s a quick learning curve and fun to jump on and play
