We Doodle is a pretty good version of the popular game Pictionary for your iPad.
Like most of ngmoco’s games it’s free to play with a ton of in-app purchases, should you choose to buy them.
You start off with the the very basics for drawing; a line and some colours. As you progress through the game you earn experience and coins that you can spend to upgrade your artistic arsenal.
A variety of brushes, backgrounds, shapes and stencils are all available in the store.
The game can be played with friends or online against strangers. There’s a built in policing system if people get out of line online. This doesn’t mean that you won’t encounter the occasional penis drawn though, so beware of letting the kids play this one without supervision.
I tend to only play with friends, thus avoiding any unsavory artistic expressions in the public games. And adding friends is simple with plus+ network integration built in.
The drawing is responsive but can be quite finicky when the assisted drawing tool is turned on. As you can see from my poor rendering of a mouse, a spider-web effect comes into play when you draw to close to another line.
We Doodle also benefits from being a universal app, so you can get your doodling on at home or on the go.
There isn’t much in the way of winning or losing so the stakes are low, but for a free app We Doodle has enough polish to make it worth checking out. Feel free to invite me a game as well, as you can see from the screenshots my user name is MyMANWICH.
