Great games lol art


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This is a very nice idea in my opinion. I like how easily you can connect with other people on Newgrounds this way. I think it's also great that you can look up people who recently played the game as to prevent that you'll just find users who don't bother with this game anymore.

The interface is good in my opinion. The lay-out of everything is nice and simple and the tools are sufficient and easy to work with. Perhaps an eraser tool would be a nice addition though. I couldn't find one apart from the undo tool, but that isn't always that convenient to use. Also, a chat/message option might be nice (an in-game one), where you can send comments to someone like "hey nice drawing" or give a hint. I suppose you could also do that via the PM, but at times I might prefer to give an in-game comment. Lastly I suggest a speed up button for the guessing part. It took pretty long sometimes to fully watch someone's drawing process.

Overall 4.5 out of 5. A nice idea like I said and well executed. Keep up the good work.
