Draw Something

One of the hottest sensations of the IOS gaming has been Draw Something, published by Zynga. A new take on Pictionary, Draw Something takes advantage of asynchronous gameplay (multiplayer gameplay where players move on their own time) which is now ubiquitous in IOS games. Players get a few different prompts to draw from of varying difficulty - like "Cat", "Music", and "Conan"- and then draw with a variety of pen sizes and colors (you can unlock new colors later)

 

Your opponent then has to guess what it is. You win more gold coins for guessing hard drawings and you can use those to buy new words or bombs that narrow letter selection. While the game is a lot of fun initially and great for gamers of all ages, I found myself wanting an end goal to the game. Games could go on for months without anyone winning or losing. So in that sense, Draw Something is more like an experience and less a game. It's $3 on the App Store and that's not bad for what is a very fun time. But I suggest trying the free version first to see if it's your jam.
