I found this to be a very impressive game. I think what mostly makes it work is how you give so much freedom to the players. Granted, I doubt if this will ever go really far for me, but it's the thought that counts. I like how everything is, once again, done in a very organized manner. I actually surprised myself with how good I could draw. This is a heck of a lot better than when I use

Granted, if I submitted something like that to the art portal, I'd probably get below a 1.00 score like everything else I've submitted here. As usual, it's great to have some easy medals. The music was also pretty good with its variety. I guess I am slowly improving with art.

This game is great!! I love the music and the overall gameplay is awesome. This is probably my favorite game on newgrounds!
Also, here's an idea, add a zoom in and out feature because sometimes it's hard to draw and it would help a lot.
You sir, deserve this 5 star rating.

How do we see other users' draws?

This is just silly fun stuff here.
I think its funny when I played the random user games it picked out Mindchamber, Tomamoto, and JohnnyUtah almost all in a row. I doubt they are actually going to play me but it just shows that you can get matched up with ANYBODY. good stuff.
The game itself is really fun, but I don't expect to make any awesome art because of the limited options and lack of precision tools like line and fill options which does not matter as long as you can provide your opponent with a good enough drawing to know what it is, that's good enough
