Sophia George has taken the complex visual of the design with its entwined shoots and flowers and speckled thieving birds with fruit plucked in their beaks. Sophia, a Bafta-winning games designer was invited by the Victoria and Albert Museum to adapt one of their designs for a game and her choice was Strawberry Thief, the 1883 design from Morris.

It is a relaxing addition to any iPad, and makes you feel smug while playing a game because it is so unashamedly arty. Even though it is such marvellous quality that I wouldn't have objected to paying for it, the game is available free of charge for download.
I hope this is such a success that further Pre-Raphaelite games are made - you could help the knight through the brambles in Burne-Jones Briar Rose, or help Rossetti keep all his animals alive...
