The Urban Dictionary defines “Creople” as creepy people. The app developer defines “Creople” as creative + people. I define it as fun!
Creople is an iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch app that is a blast for two people or more to play. This game, entertaining for young and old alike, has four panels: head, torso, legs and feet. One panel is shown at a time and the person or team holding the iPhone is supposed to draw that part of the body, open the new panel and pass it to the next team. That team doesn’t see what the previous teams have drawn.
At the end of the game the Creople is revealed for hilarious results. You can save your Creople to your Gallery within the app, to the Camera Roll on your device, or post it on Facebook.
I like the game because it’s fun for two or more people to play and it involves cooperation. Two people can pass the device back and forth for their turns to play. If you have a larger group, you can make teams of people to draw each part. Even very young children can play this game because it comes pre-loaded with shapes to help you draw.
I tested this game with my crackshot team of kid testers (boys and girls, ages 6-15) who put it through the paces. The ultimate test of an app is whether the kids protest when I try to move onto the next app for them to test. No one wanted to quit Creople.
At first the kids followed the rules, trying to draw people accurately. But as the rounds progressed, the kids and the drawings got sillier and sillier. Giggles flooded the room as each team of kids tried make their drawings goofy.
This game comes in very handy for car rides, plane trips and other occasions where you’re looking for a fun way to entertain the kids. The game can also be an effective ice breaker if your family gathering needs an injection of merriment!
Creople is $1.99 in the iTunes App Store: Creople
