Every picture tells a story, find the meaning and solve the puzzle. Just swipe to lace up words, it’s simple and satisfying!

Each level presents you with an image and a set of jumbled letters. Your task is to find words associated with the image and “lace” the words together. 

Loop, link, and weave your way through over 1000 puzzles. Unlock new themes and expand your shoe collection. How many can you collect?  

The daily puzzle for Word Laces features topical content from around the world. Whether it’s Thanksgiving, Ramadan, Halloween or Hanukkah, every day is worth celebrating. 

From the makers of Bonza, Word Laces is a word puzzle game about associations, connotations, and collecting shoes.


In late 2018, Minimega set out to develop a word game for the upcoming Apple Arcade Subscription Service. The concept for Word Laces (originally Word Zip) was conceived and the early prototype showed promise.

In early 2019, development began and the game started taking shape. After some iteration, the name changed to “Word Laces” which included the “laces” theme and a shoe collection was introduced, because who doesn’t love shoes??

Word Laces is scheduled for release in 2019 at the launch of the Apple Arcade Subscription Service.
