Draw Something for Nokia Lumia Windows Phones is now a reality

Draw Something!

We knew for sometime now that Nokia was getting the hit social game Draw Something developed by Omgpop (later acquired by now troubled Zynga). The Pictionary-esque game involves users trying to draw a word remotely on their phones, while another friend attempts to guess that word. The game is cross-platform and has rocketed to the top of mobile social-gaming.

Many users have begged and pleaded with Omgpop to bring it to Windows Phone and it looks like they have, albeit it limited to just Nokia Lumia phones. (Cue the battle in comments over whether this helps or hinders Windows Phone).

The game weighs in at just a puny 7MB and is of course free for users. We should note it is not an Xbox title, meaning there are no achievements but in turn, you get that precious iPhone/iPad/Android ability to play with others—score. The game also features notifications, of course, to let you know it is your turn.

The game requires an email or your Facebook to connect up and play friends, so be prepared for that aspect.

If we had to describe it, we would suggest that this was a direct port of the iOS game, so don’t expect a Modern UI version of the smash game. Instead, you get what look to be awkward graphics on a Windows Phone and some tiny fonts. And ads, of course. But hey, you wanted it, so some of you can now get it.

Pick up Draw Something for Nokia Lumia phones here in the Store. Thanks, Ryan T., for the tip!
