ScratchDown is a casual-style scratch & guess game available from the Android Market. It is fun, addictive and immediately accessible to players of all ages. Give it a try: Download now via AppBrain for free!
The aim of the game is to scratch and guess a picture given four options as shown in the screenshots below. Scratching is entertaining in itself, but the real challenge is to manage the limited scratch allowance as indicated by the bar below the picture. The scratch allowance decreases after each correct guess. The less of the scratch allowance is used, the higher the score.
ScratchDown is free and add-supported in its basic version in which pictures are downloaded on-the-fly from the ScratchDown group on Flickr.com (so an Internet connection is needed to play). This allows new pictures to be added constantly. The group currently features around 500 pictures, many of which are contributed by ScratchDown players. That's right: you can add you own pictures to this group for use in the game!
A number of paid add-ons are also available as separate downloads. ScratchDown is ad-free with one or more of these.
ScratchDown, in partnership with Scoreloop, provides global highscore lists which allow you to compete with people anywhere in the world. You can also challenge other players using the in-game currency, adding an extra level of excitement to these competitions.
Some additional screenshots are shown below. These are of the ScratchDown menus, the Geography add-on, and the Money add-on, respectively.
