The game is set in a startup chocolate factory run by a hovercraft-riding hipster penguin named Ice Coolson. The player is presented with random letter-embossed chocolates on a moving conveyor belt at the top of the screen. The goal is to fill a set of crossword-shaped boxes with valid words before the letters fall off the end of the conveyor into the garbage chute.
Adventure Mode:Levels consist of increasingly difficult sets of boxes. The letters are different every time. As the play progresses, more boxes, longer words, faster conveyor speeds, and tighter configurations increase the difficulty. Stars are awarded for performance, and levels can be replayed for more stars. Interspersed with the gameplay are cut-scenes that progress the story and motivate the player.
Two players (either on one iPad or through Game Center) are presented with an identical set of five boxes and the same letters in the same order. Each plays his own board in real time, and can see what the other is doing. Finish first and win; waste seven chocolates and lose.
