Two eagerly-awaited social gaming classics—Zynga’s Words With Friends and Draw Something—are now available in the Windows Phone Store. Both cost $2.99 and run on Windows Phone 7.5 or higher.
Words with Friends is a Scrabble-like social word game challenging players to use their allotted tiles to build words and score points. You can chat and play with Facebook friends or random opponents and juggle up to 20 games simultaneously. Get it now
Fans of classic party games like Pictionary or charades will immediately click with Draw Something, a two-person game where players take turns drawing and guessing randomly-provided words (there are 2500 to choose from.) Challenge a friend on Facebook or Twitter—or let the app pick someone for you. Get it now
Be warned - Draw Something is pretty buggy. It will hang on my WP7.5 device if you're playing against an Android opponenet and they guess a wrong word first. This seems to be a long-standing problem back many months on all devices so not WP-specific. But it's very frustrating.
Also, I second Leigh's POV. This is clearly a ported iOS app complete with wierdness like pull-down-to-refresh.
It seems like a good cross-platform competitor could execute this and have a winner.
This is great guys. Please vote for backup for Windows Phone 7.8, so we don't lose everything when (if) we upgrade!
i wish microsoft could bring atleast FIFA franchise games.. justin tv.. and live score in its market place
To each his own, but it seems Zynga didn't build a Windows Phone app. They built a ported iPhone app which doesn't match the "best practices" of the platform.
I guess they had a choice to make the app match the same app on other platforms, or match the platform itself, and they chose the former.
Draw Something does not seem to be available to my Lumia 920 or HTC TITAN in Canada.
Heh, no free version (yet?), I guess...
Finally! :) Time to own some friends (or maybe grow some more humility).
Next release.. Temple run for windows 7.5 or even agent dash :)
