The cases that Apple rolled out to match its colorful iPhone 5c phones were ridiculed as  kiddish — and even compared to Crocs footwear for their similar ‘holey’ appearance — but a new game is making the case that they are a fun, must-have accessory.

Flipcase is an app that needs you to attach the iPhone 5c case to the front of your phone, thus letting you play Connect Four in an interesting way.

The game itself isn’t amazing, but the creative spin on Apple’s iPhone 5c case is pretty cool. This Flipcase app was developed by the founders of Discovr, a music discovery app for iOS app that could loosely be described as ‘Twitter for music’.
