Back in June came word that two of Zynga’s more popular mobile games were coming to Windows Phone, and now at least one of them is finally available with the launch of Draw Something. Of course, the Pictionary-esque game won’t be available for all Windows Phone devices just yet — as Nokia previously revealed, for the first two months after launch the game will be exclusive to Nokia Lumia devices. There’s currently no word on when the other announced game, Words With Friends, will be making its way to the platform as well. And for those who own a Nokia device that isn’t a Windows Phone, there’s still some hope, as the company has previously announced plans to bring both Draw Something and Zynga Poker to its Asha line of budget…
Trying to launch a concerted nonprofit video campaign can feel like tilting at windmills: you might have one moment of undivided attention from viewers before they’re off to watch cats and Nigerian pygmy goats. Google wants to make the most of that time through its YouTube Campaigns initiative. The strategy brings on-video overlays and channel sections that show viewers both a progress meter for the campaign as well as a handy links to explore and share what they’ve found. If all goes well, charities and like-minded organizations get more donations and YouTube views, while we in the general public are reminded that there’s more to life than K-pop videos. It certainly beats manning the phones for a celebrity fundraiser.
Question by : Why can’t I download the Draw Something App on my Samsung Galaxy? The Google Play market on my Samsung Galaxy will not even register the Draw Something App. At one point, I was able to dl the Draw Some Free app, but once I decided to upgrade to the full version, I delted it from my phone and the game was no longer available on the market. Suggestions?
Answer by Gaurav GangulyFrom what I understand TJ from Essex broke it. By all accounts his drawings were so bad that the app felt its purpose was flawed and so decided to pack it all in. The designers are very upset with TJ.

Blog Article: www.sleeplessninja.com I am not sure how I missed this application. This is absolutely the PDF application that has almost everything I could want and more. With the tools to annotate, highlight, and draw I finally have the means to read my PDFs and really utilize the Reader as I would on my Mac but in a more natural hands on way. It doesn’t end here though. With the full screen PDF viewer I can deliver Presentations in PDF format and even draw on my presentations. This is not perfect, however its a very welcome addition and something I will be taking advantage of. For only .99 cents this applications is really a dream come true. Please check this app out, please comment on it and let the devs know Sleepless sent you. Video Rating: 4 / 5Related Posts:
Draw Something has been a hot topic of late. About a month ago, OMGPOP, the company behind the hit game, was acquired by Zynga as the web gaming company attempts the migration over to mobile. The $ 180 million deal took Zynga’s daily user traffic up 25 percent, and even though Draw Something has been bleeding users, the motivation behind the acquisition circles back to Zynga’s transition to mobile. They bought talent, instead of trying to mimic it.
That, dear readers, is a Fly. But what about the game itself?
John and I sat down in the studio to discuss the merits of the game, if you can even call it a game. What is there to win? Sure, you and your friend could get to the 100-turn mark, and you may get enough currency to buy some colors or a bomb or two, but do you want to?
There’s no reward in Draw Something. As Josh Constine pointed out, people like to draw and people like to guess. That is the driver of success for games like Pictionary. But people who play games like to compete, as well, which is where Draw Something loses big time.
Not only am I not rewarded for what can end up being hours of game-play, but I find that most of my friends cheat. Maybe I have an abnormally unethical group of friends, but the temptation is there to simply write out words you can’t properly draw and cash in on all three coins, especially when there is no winner or loser.
As I said during Fly or Die, the game feels empty, which is why both John and I give it a die. Just wait and see — Zynga will use the OMGPOP talent to push out addictive game after addictive game, but Draw Something will be long forgotten.

This is a mesmerizing video of an arm attached to two record players drawing. What’s it drawing? ‘DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE’ over and over. Just kidding, it looks like a worm-hole or something. And speaking of worm holes: one time I got a worm to eat a piece of string and then when it came out the other side I tied the string in a knot and wore him as a necklace. He would do little laps around my neck constantly eating the string! Then he dried up.
Hit the jump for the video.Related Posts:
Rolling your luggage through the airport with your arms? There’s got to be a better way! If you’re a lucky fan of everyone’s favorite console modder Ben Heck, you could win the freshly-built hands-free robotic luggage lovingly nicknamed “Doug.” Or you can just catch the latest episode of Heck’s show to figure out how to build an obedient wheeled suitcase of your very own — and wink at all of the requisite R2-D2 references. Old Doug here will follow its master (whoever happens to be holding its transmitter) up to 20 feet away, speeding up when he or she is further away and stopping when within a foot. The ‘bot’s desire to follow is fully disabled when you pick it up off the ground. Click the source link, if this happens to be the luggage you’re looking for.

I’ve played through my share of tower defense games in my day — and have gotten hopelessly addicted to a few of them — but none really approach Andy Wallace’s Doodle Defense when it comes to execution. You see, instead of dragging and dropping pre-made parts onto a field, players must defend against invaders by drawing their own towers and obstacles on a whiteboard.
Wallace cobbled Doodle Defense together as a project for an algorithmic animation class, and the result is a simple-but-novel approach to a cherished genre of time waster. Draw black lines to block or divert the invaders, while drawing red, green, and blue dots create towers that have varying effects on the enemy. Just don’t overdo it with the drawings — a counter nestled in the upper left side of the game field keeps track of how much ink is left at your disposal, a la Okami.
Fun as it looks, Doodle Defense does require a fair bit of setup. The game itself runs on a Mac, and Wallace uses a projector to display the game field on a giant whiteboard. From there, the game interprets the user’s drawings as inputs thanks to a connected Kinect camera, and seeing it in action looks like an ink-slinging good time.
Ultimately, Wallace is looking for crowd-sourced funding to bring Doodle Defense to a handful of other platforms, including PCs and the iPad. I’ll be honest here, it seems like much of Doodle Defense’s appeal disappears when you’re stuck using a more conventional mode of input to play. Still, it’s a very promising project, and I’m looking forward to what Wallace (and the team of artists and sound designers he hopes to recruit) will do with it next.
If you’d rather not donate but still want to play around with the game, you could also just pore through his code: the entire project is open-source and available on Github.
