OMGPOP's Draw Something was a revelation when it debuted, racking up 50 million downloads in as many days and causing Zynga to get out its chequebook and purchase the game - and its developer - for a cool $180 million.
However, as with so many fads, Draw Something's appeal waned almost as quickly and it went from being the game that everyone was playing to the game everyone used to be playing.
When you've spent almost 200 million bucks on something, that's not really part of the plan, so it should come as little surprise to see that Zynga has given the game a considerable face-lift and pushed it back onto the market with a "2" at the end of the title.
With a larger dictionary, more tools, and vastly improved social skills, Draw Something 2 is a worthwhile enhancement of its forerunner which is worth looking into even if you grew bored of the original
