Sleep Furiously combines the absurdity of fridge magnet sentences with SpellTower
Noam Chomsky used the sentence "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously" to show that sentences can be both nonsensical and grammatically correct.

This might sound like an obscure origin for a mobile game, but Sleep Furiously from Playmation Studios is far from obscure.

If you've ever played around with fridge prose magnets, crafting silly sentences with a random handful of words, then you already know how to play.

The whole game is about making sentences as bizarre and hilarious as you want, but like Chomsky's example, the only rule is grammar.

If the grammar's not right, you can't string the words together.

In terms of gameplay, Sleep Furiously is similar to SpellTower, where words are eliminated if used and the leftovers continue to stack.

I had the chance to play Sleep Furiously at Apps World this week and thought it was a clever and fun approach to the word game genre.

Check out the gameplay trailer below or start making your own weird sentences on iOS or Android for $2.99.
