Draw Something was originally created by a studio called OMGPOP before being bought out by Zynga. In this game there is no winning or losing, just a lot of casual fun. You login to the game via Facebook or your email address, choose an opponent and then pick a word. After picking that word you are supposed to draw what that word means and do your best to resemble it. At that point your opponent or friend needs to guess that word based off of the drawing you sent them.
There are three levels of words, easy, medium and hard. Easy is worth one coin and from that difficulty and up the coins increment by one. After earning so many coins you can purchase one of the various color packs and/or bombs. The color packs allow you to had a variety of color to your drawings that you will be sending to your friend or opponent to guess. Bombs allow the player to narrow their letters down to only a few so it is easier to guess the drawing.
If you decide to pay for the paid version of the app this will remove adds but also grant you 200 free coins, 5 bombs and 2500 words to choose from in your drawings. This isn’t your regular arcade style, shoot ‘em up game like a lot of people are used to. The game still offers a lot of fun and there are some amazing things you can do with your drawings. Those amazing things people do with their drawings? They probably use a stylus or something instead of their finger, so don’t get depressed!
From what I have seen, Draw Something is best played on a tablet do to the larger screen thus allowing yourself more room for detail. The game gets really fun when your around family or friends sitting down and playing together constantly. There are many laughs to be had and even a few frustrations sometimes due to the inability to guess the drawing.
This game is great for families who own Android or iOS devices and even individuals who are playing the game with each other across the world. The best thing about playing with Facebook or email is that it makes playing with others on iOS devices while you own an Android very easy with little to no difficulties.
You also shouldn’t worry if you get the free version and want to switch to the paid version after playing for free for awhile. Since the game is connected to Facebook or your email address you won’t have to worry about starting your turn count over with your friends and family. All of that information will just transfer over to the paid version.
With all that said, highly recommended game and I challenge someone to do a drawing of Vincent van Gogh drawing The Starry Night and post it here.
