It’s safe to assume that most of us are familiar with the game show, Wheel of Fortune, where contestants attempt to reveal messages behind tiles. How about crossword puzzles - the challenging mind game where you fill in blanks based on a hint or clue? For our Spin-it Experience, we’ve taken inspiration from both the well-loved game show and the crossword puzzle and have created yet another unique, entertaining and dynamic way of presenting your message!
Design and User Experience Tips
Consider how you want to reveal your message. You may want to reveal your message like you would see on a crossword or Wheel of Fortune puzzle with the reveal message specifically placed. Or, you can also simply have the reveal message take up the entire background and as the user spins all the tiles, the message is revealed.
You can customize the number of tiles, so consider how complex you want the interaction to be. The more tiles you have, the more your use will need to interact to reveal the entire message.
You can also customize the color of the tile border, so think about how subtle or bold you would like them to be.
Tiles per side
This is the number of tiles per side of the Experience. You can choose between 2 and 9 tiles per side. This means that if you choose 2, the entire Experience will have 4 tiles.
You can choose the color and transparency of the edge of the tiles. If you want them to be completely invisible, just set the transparency to zero.
You can set your tiles to spin either horizontally or vertically depending on your preference. Or, select Any to have them spin randomly in either direction.
