Free version of Draw Something arrives for all Windows Phone 8 owners

A free, ad-supported version of Zynga's classic mobile game Draw Something is now available for all Windows Phone owners, a couple of years after a free version was made available for owners of Lumia smartphones.

Zynga released a $2.99 ad-free version of Draw Something nearly two years ago for all Windows Phone devices but it also released a free, ad supported version that was limited just to Lumia phones. A few days ago, Zynga quietly released a new free version of Draw Something in the Windows Phone Store, again supported by ads, but this one can now be played on any Windows 8 and 8.1 smartphone.

  • "Say something I'm giving up on you"
  • Same question too. Lol.
  • Dang,look at the rating....
  • Yeah, it's a broken mess they don't care to fix - it's just there to get Zynga money. DO NOT BUY.
  • I did and I regret it. I WANT A REFUND

  • When do we get Tetris?
  • Try Tetris blitz, it's really fun. Free as well!
  • freemium, bear in mind
  • I wish they had an "endless" mode, not the "1 minute short burst play" crap. I really like the controls and apparently this game exists for android but not for WP :(
  • And it's an Xbox Live game! ;) yay achievements
  • That's so 2012
  • Got to be a joke

  • It's there! It's just there whahahahahahahha x{D
  • We just need Bubble Safari. Not this. Really miss Slingo too.
  • Terrible. Keeps crashing...
  • Looks old now, aren't you bored already, it's two years now...
  • Looks old now, aren't you bored already, it's two years now...
  • What's the next popular game on iOS that's what we need, not this nostalgic crap.
  • We'll get the next big game app a year or two after it becomes irrelevant. And it'll be front page news while the rest of the mobile world has moved on to the next big flavor of the month
  • True. And they wonder why they are low in the mobile race. Joke
  • +i6
  • There was no point releasing this. It's years late and no one plays it anymore. Pointless.
  • Yeah, I tried using it. Never got past the login screen. It just wouldn't log me in. Things probably full of other bugs too
  • It is a turd.
  • How old. Not going through this again. Facebook help me what this word.
  • The paid version actually got a pretty sizable update a few days ago as well. Not that I play any more, but I loaded it up just to see what the changes were.
  • I predict 2 years from now, we'll get Candy Crush.
  • 6Crush will be here before that
  • We need tiny wings
  • least it came...even though its 2 years later
  • Blank blue screen
  • Too late in the game!!!!
  • Crash site. Lol. No wonder it's free
  • Might of missed the window by a lot
  • Lol classic WP...
  • Whoa this game still exist! Gonna try this!
  • Too late
  • Hey! I remember this app. Had it on my iPhone back in 2011.
  • Tied for the buggiest game I ever had on my phone. Not only would the game crash, it would freeze the whole phone. The other crappy buggy game was Words With Friends. Hmmm... I wonder what they have in common...
  • Can't even play a game, crashes on start up.
  • Hmm... Simple fun
  • I would rather have WP get candy crush saga instead of this.
  • Too late a guess
  • Bring on Zynga poker!
  • Reported this to MS for poor performance. Lol
    How did this get past certification?
  • I'm glad I did not get a WP for the apps.
  • Its still a decent time waster. This is a good drop.
  • Wasn't this preloaded with 920? I played a few times then got bored. What game is this then?
  • "A free, ad-supported version of Zynga's classic mobile game Draw Something is now available for all Windows Phone owners, a couple of years after a free version was made available for owners of Lumia smartphones."
  • Ah thanks for the info. I didn't knew this.
  • Wow like 2 years too late!
  • Game closes often on L520. :(
  • Keeps crashing and common error is 'out of memory line' Microsoft should ban this app from the store
  • I just found WORKING cheats for Draw Something on I have been using them for a few days now. Use them while it still works :D
