"Draw Something is a mobile app developed by Omgpop. It was one of the Mobile apps which won the Flurry App Spotlight Awards in 2012. In the first five weeks after its launching, the game was downloaded 20 million times. Fifty days after its release, it had been downloaded 50 million times. In March of 2012, both Draw Something and Omgpop were bought by the game giant Zynga for $180 million." -- Wikipedia
For those who play this game, here is a humorous video to share with all of you.
What type of player are you?
Watching this video has regained my interest in Draw Something. Fast forward to now, the initial hype seems to have died down quite a bit in Singapore. I'm not too sure about the popularity curve of this game in other countries though. Maybe my foreign readers might want to share some knowledge with me?
I haven't been playing the game for about 3 weeks due to some bug in some of my friends' games which could not be fixed for a period of time. However recently, there was an update to the game and the bug has been fixed.
Along with the updates are new features like:
- Sharing drawings on Twitter and Facebook
- Save drawings to your devices' photo library
- Notifications for Android devices
- Increase of the max streak from 99 to 999
- Pull down to refresh game status
- UNDO button for your last brush stroke
- Even better performance
- More words
- And a slew of other fixes and tweaks
I am really more tempted to play now seeing that the max streaks would be increased to 999. After I hit 99 with a couple of people, we simply pushed all enthusiasm out of the window. In addition, the UNDO button would certainly benefit many people too.
I'm currently looking through my Draw Something folder in which I saved many __________________ (baffling/beautiful/facepalm/ugly) screen shots and am in the process of coming up with my own list. I really can't wait to share these screen shots with all of you!
Here's another list which I found off the Internet to end off this post.
