June 1, 2012 in Education
[prMac.com] Stockholm, Sweden - Making "draw-and-fold figures" has long been a popular game for kids. Today, the Swedish app developer Wombi is releasing Funny Figures 1.0, an app-version of the timeless game, including illustrations by artist Malin Rosenqvist. The game's format is simple. The players take turns secretly drawing body parts. When the last player has completed the feet, the whole picture is revealed and the results are often funny, crazy and unexpected figures.
In "Funny Figures" you choose a drawing mode and then start drawing freely - exactly like the traditional game. But what gives the app an extra dimension is the ready-made illustrations that are included.
Illustrator Malin Rosenqvist has produced 20 unique figures for the app that the players can choose to use. Among the figures are a dog, a duck, a ballerina, a fisherman - and even a hipster(!). The ready-made images make the game especially suitable for iPhone, where drawing is otherwise difficult and messy. Further, the ready-made images also make the game suitable for younger players.
