The brain child of 2cre8 LLC, Creople is an interesting new drawing App available on the iTunes App Store. What’s interesting and different about Creople is that it is built specifically to draw characters on your iPhone or iPod touch. Not only can you draw them with the touchscreen but the process by which you do it is very unique, which helps provide a more compelling and entertaining process then then norm.
How to play: First off Creople can be played with one person or multiple people. In my opinion the real fun part of this app is using it in a muli-player manner. You play Creople by creating your characters piece by piece. There are 4 body parts to be drawn—head, torso, legs and feet. You can only see and draw one panel at a time. Each time a panel is completed, it’s hidden to prevent any other people from viewing that section until the end. First draw the head. Next either you or another person can draw the torso. Then draw the legs and the last part is the feet. In the “Options” panel, you can also choose pre-drawn artwork from the “Gallery” and draw over it or leave as is. Or draw your own body parts from scratch. Use the magnifying glass in the “Options” panel to ‘Zoom’ in if you want more precision and detail. Your Creople is revealed only when all 4 parts are complete. Finally you can name your Creople, save it to your personal Gallery and photo roll, and even post it to Facebook to share.
My Feedback: I found Creople to be an inventive app idea and give 2cre8 LLC kudos for that. Though it surely can be fun for all ages it really is more for children. I imagine most kids would get a kick out of Creople, and since it is based around drawing, I’d say it’s time better spent then on many other games. I found the drawing interface to be a little difficult to use as a grown man. It’s rather easy to doodle something quick and messy but it’s more restrictive if your trying to be more detailed and creative with your “creople”. That being said maybe that has more to do with my fat fingers then anything else. Once again a childs small fingers could probably operate within the drawing space provided more effectively than an adults could. Unless of course it’s an adult with small Carny hands. In which case guard your wallet well around them.
Bottom line, if you’ve got kids at home who need entertainment and an extra $1.99 in your fanny pack then Creople would be worth a download. If you’ve got fat sausage fingers and a desperate need to artistically express yourself then this might not fit the mold for you.
