APP OF THE DAY: Draw Something Free

" If you can’t guess what a drawing is, you can always detonate the ‘bomb"

Draw Something Free
Cost: Free | Developer: OMGPOP | Platform: iPhone, iPad, iPod | 8.3 MB

I’m a huge fan of Pictionary. I’m also a huge fan of free things.

So when I saw Draw Something Free on the Apple iTunes App Store, I jumped on it.

The premise is simple. You face off with an opponent (random or a selected friend) and you both have to draw and guess each other’s pictures. Exactly like Pictonary, but more hi-tech, obviously.

It’s a turn-based game and instead of simply inputting words in, you get a set of jumbled up letters. From that, you have to select the letters to make up the word that is associated with the pictured that has been drawn.

Users can utilise different colours rather than stick with boring black to create their masterpieces. If you have no artistic talent, drawing stick figures is also acceptable.

If you can’t guess what a drawing is, you can always detonate the ‘bomb’ (it’s just an icon on the screen, relax guys) and start anew.

Draw Something Free also keeps tabs of the stats of all players which is nice to suss out how good your opponent is.

Best of all the animation in the game is fantastic. A visually appealing app is one that will keep me playing.

Pros: Great animations, easy to use, fun

Cons: None that I can think of

Verdict: An awesome app for fans of Pictionary.
