It’s one thing to have a virtual chalkboard, but it’s another matter altogether to being able to play party games on it. A combination of charades, with inspiration taken from Draw Something, Party Doodles is one app that will entertain a group of friends at parties.
As per the name suggests, Party Doodles requires users to doodle. Much like charades or Draw Something, the player is required to doodle a sketch that the other players must figure out. However, the interesting part lies in the fact that players play in teams instead of individual rounds taking turns.
Should the sketch not be able to be deciphered by other players, the opposing team can choose to steal the questions for them, resulting in more points of course.
The interesting part of Party Doodles lies in the ability to synchronize and integrate with Apple TV. This features means players can now play the game on their bigger television screens, rather than crowd around a tiny iPad. This feature heavily complements and cements Party Doodles’ stance as a multiplayer party game best played in large groups.
A free app, Party Doodles is worth the download. Additional level packs can be unlocked through in-app purchases.
Would I Buy Again:Yes.
Who Is It For:Group gatherings.
What I Like:The ability to integrate with Apple TV.
What I Don't Like:The game's concept is rather stale.
Final Statement:This is a great party game for gatherings of large groups.
