The word amazing has to come into play when we talk about the popular ‘Draw Something’ app, since we have installed this on both the iPhone and one of our Android phones we have not put the handset down.
Addiction is also another word that comes into play; we had to turn off notifications as when working the phone alerts you for the next move. Now is the time when we enter the world of frustration with the Draw Something 99 max score, but good news is about to follow.
Draw Something is probably, no let’s change that to ‘IS’ the best social drawing/guessing game in the App Store and Google Play, there are more than 2000 words, bombs and coins to be earned. We are using the paid version mainly on the Apple iPhone 4S, the game is fairly simple where you get a choice of three words on each turn, you pick one and then draw it, after you have done this the person you are playing then guesses what you have drawn and then draws something for you to guess, pretty straight forward really.
The bombs we mentioned above makes the game a little easier for those stumped, you can use these to change the words for another three as well as erase a few letters to make the guessing easier. You can play with your Facebook friends, which is what we have been doing, now for the bad news.
If you look below we have added a couple of screenshots from the Draw Something game via our iPhone 4S, you will notice the number 99, this took around a week and a half to get to this number and player Lawrence (He is my cousin) and myself were hooked, we got to 99 and then carried on playing thinking it would break new records, but oh no it stops at 99. This is very frustrating to say the least, and a few vents of anger nearly prompted the iPhone 4S becoming the best flying missile on the planet.
No disrespect to Lawrence, but playing him has got to the bored stage, what is the point of playing if you cannot achieve a higher score, the game is all about getting a new record. The actual words that came out of my mouth are not fit for online, that is how frustrated I got, and before you say “it is just a game”, we agree with you but is still a pain in the backside to say the least.
Now we here have heard though the grape vine that the Draw Something max 99 score will soon go to 999 in a future update, until we hear from the makers of this game OMGPOP we have to take the 999 score with a pinch of salt, so if you are reading this please email us on [email protected] and verify this OMGPOP.
