I’m sure you’ve heard the talk about Facebook buying Instagram for a cool $1bn, and possibly the other news in the media of Zynga purchasing Draw Something.
Personally, I’m a lot more interested in Draw Something. Now I’m not your traditional gamer, I never got into computer games, Gameboy, Playstation, Xbox or Wii – despite the fact that there’s pretty much all of them in my house. But I do have to say, that Draw Something is among the few games I’ve played, after Plants V’s Zombies and Where’s Wally. The difference though, you can’t clock it like you can these two.
It’s such a great time waster and perfect for the competitors amongst you, taking on friends and colleagues left, right and centre. I’m thinking we need to have an office battle, although the designers in the agency have a slight advantage.
I do have to say that (and admittedly, I went for the free option) my proudest moment was when I had enough coins to buy a full colour palate to make my works of art just that little bit better – if you’re in a game with me at the moment you’ll know that these really are works of art! Anyway, back to that colour range, here I am so very proud with my new colour range and then Draw Something randomly signed me out and when I signed back I no longer had my colour range, or my coins to buy them back. Now no-one will know that I was talented enough to gain enough coins to buy a new colour range!
There’s a few other things I’d like to see happen, and supposedly Zynga are all over it but, a simple little Go Back function for when you’ve selected the wrong word to draw, and the ability to choose another person to play without having to finish your current game would make things just that little bit easier. A Chat functionality would also be great so you can talk smack with your opponents. I haven’t got to the 99 you’re awesome at this game cap yet, but apparently that’s increasing too, maybe they read my previous comment about clocking a game.
What’s more important to you, the winning streak or the coins? I’d have to say the coins, but that’s because I have the free game and I’m longing to get that colour palate back. And can anyone tell me how do I get more bombs?
So for all you Draw Something gamers out there, let’s draw to the new era of this drawing craze. – Renee
