App Review: Draw Something for iPhone and iPad

March 29, 2012 by  
Filed under Freebies, Games

One of the hottest social games right now has got to be Draw Something by OMGPOP. Anyone can play; whether you’re an artist or not, it’s fun, addictive, and quite easy!

What is Draw Something? As the name suggests, it’s a Pictionary-type game where you draw and try to guess your friend’s word. You and your friend are on the same team. Drawing and guessing a word correctly rewards both sides.

To start, search for your friend in the game. They can be found either by username or Facebook. Then you’ll be given a list of three words, each one having a different value. The easiest word is worth one coin. The next challenging word is worth two coins. And the most difficult-to-draw word is worth three coins. Select one of the words and draw it on the next screen.

Once you’re done drawing, submit and send it to your friend. A video recording of you drawing your masterpiece unfolds for your friend to watch. Below the screen are twelve letters. Some of these letters are in the word, and some are not. Once they figure out what the word is, they can start tapping on the letters to fill in the blanks. If they guess correctly, it’s their turn to draw something for you. When it’s your turn again, you will see a video of your drawing along with your friend’s guesses. And then you get to guess their drawing.

So what can you do with all these coins you collect? You can purchase more paint colors! The five default colors are nice, but having many shades of various colors to pick from is fun too.

So what happens if you’re stuck? If you can’t figure out what your friend drew, you can use the bomb and blast away some of the given letters that aren’t in the word. Only one blast per round is allowed. If you still can’t figure it out, you can just pass.

I think the drawing videos being played back to the users is what makes this game stand apart from other drawing games. It’s fun watching how the brain works, from drawing the first stroke, to the exact moment when the user figures out the word.

I highly recommend trying this game if you haven’t already. The game is on sale at an introductory price of 99 cents and comes with 400 coins and extra bombs. If you are unsure about the purchase, try the ad version for free.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 | Universal Full Version (99 cents) | Universal Add Version (Free)

Freebie Friday! (For 3/26/2010)

March 26, 2010 by  
Filed under Freebies, Games, Reviews

Yay, more freebie iPhone / iPod Touch apps! I hope you enjoy this week’s picks! Of the ones listed, definitely get We Rule asap and add my kingdom right away. ;) Enjoy!

We Rule | Free Download
Build your kingdom, make your own rules, and design it however you want. It’s a live kingdom with peasants and workers walking around, going on with their day to day routines. Create farms and be sure to harvest your crops, sell, and collect experience points. The best part of the game is probably visiting neighboring kingdoms for a dash of inspiration, or maybe compete on who has the better kingdom. My gamer name is ‘daynah’ — feel free to come visit my kingdom!

Piyo Blocks | Free Download (For a limited time)
Get ready for some pixel-matching fun! Piyo Blocks is an adorable and addicting match
A fun pixel match-3 game with cute baby chicks. Swap the baby chick blocks and level up by capturing the target number of piyos. You can also create combos for even extra points. It was $1.99 and is free today only!

Gibson Learn & Master Guitar Application | Free Download
This is a handy app if you’re interested in learning how to play the guitar. It comes with a chart with all the chords for reference, as well as some free videos lessons. Musicians may also find this app helpful as it has a professional quality chromatic tuner that allows you to tune any instrument, as well as a metronome to keep you on the beat. Very nice app and it’s absolutely free.

Touch Pet Dogs | Free Download
The newest version of Touch Pets Dogs 2.0 looks amazing. There’s a new social view where you can see your friends (neighbors) and all their virual dogs! New room themes have been added so each house looks a little bit different. The more dogs you own, the bigger your house is in the neighborhood. ;) My gamer name is ‘daynah’ — feel free to have a playdate with my pets!

Words with Friends Free | Free Download | Full Version
This is not a new game, but lately, my friends got me addicted to Words with Friends. It’s a word game that’s very similar to Scrabble. Each player is given a tray of letters, and the object is to put them on the board to make words out of them. Various points are given out depending on how many letters were use, how much each letter is worth, and/or where it was placed on the board. It’s a fun casual game played at both the players’ pace. Free version has ads after you submit a word, but you can purchase the full version for $2.99. My gamer name is ‘daynah’ if you want to play!

Huff Puff Volley | Free Download
Here’s a very cute badminton game for the iPhone and iPod touch. The animal characters play against each other on a volleyball court. In this version, your character is an adorable pig that can blow the birdie over the net. You can blow into the iPhone mic or tap the birdie to move it. Tile your phone left and right to move your character. I think the game is cute and fun, but the controls are not the best.

Mashable! | Free Download
Mashable.com is an excellent site for all your social media, technology, and entertainment news. If you enjoy the site, the app is a must! Be notified the moment a new article is on a website. The interface is very easy to navigate and makes reading the articles enjoyable. Instapaper is integrated in the app so you can view articles at a later time.

Digg | Free Download
The official Digg app was released this week which makes visiting your favorite news site much easier on the go! View by your favorite topics, easily digg, bury, and share news articles, as well as save your favorites for later reading.

Bargain iPhone and iPod Touch Apps

Here are two apps I think are the best bargain iPhone apps this week that are definitely worth buying.

Diner Dash | Download for 99 cents | Free Lite Version
If you enjoy time management games, then you’ll love Diner Dash. Help Flo run a restaurant by seating, serving, and clearing the dishes at each table. Try out the lite version for free, but act fast. Take advantage of the 80% off sale of the full version!

Dr. Horrible | Download for 99 cents
Any fan of Dr. Horrible will enjoy this app! Dark Horse Comics present Dr. Horrible as a comic. The story takes place with Billy being an 9-Year-Old boy, and you get to see how his criminal master-mind life got started. The story is brilliant, and the app is elegantly done. Flip pages just by tapping. Tap on settings for options to go back to a specific page or change the transition type. Very simple, and quite enjoyable. And if you don’t know who Dr. Horrible is, please go watch Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along-Blog! The 3-part webisode is free to watch online. :) This comic is a prequel to the webisode.
