Humbly requesting an icon!

I've placed geocached DRM-free USB copies of my newest game in various locations throughout Europe and Southeastern US. Email me if you find 'em for the free "explorer" cape.

I've been playing Charadium II for the last couple of days (and all evening with my wife!), and feeling motivated to point out how much better it is than Draw Something, a similar but more limited game, which nonetheless has been very successful since bought by Zynga (a company many would prefer not to support as they've copied others' games!).

**1** the drawing tools:
-a greater level of detail possible because Charadium lets you zoom in/out
-many (unlimited?) levels of undo (vs only 1!)
-you can draw objects more quickly because allows drawing of filled shapes (right-most tool)
-you can have subtle detail within an object of the same color because multiple paintbrush strokes leave trails (like paint)
-you can draw white things (background is like parchment)
-more complex drawing tools are available (play around with them)
-the above make possible not only more realistic depictions of things, but also illustration of more abstract [often = more fun] things

**2** the "Ping-Pong"-type games (which are similar to Draw Something games)
-you can have multiple people (not just 2) playing in a single game. When you go to the game, there could be multiple drawings cued up for you to guess!
-you don't have to wait for the other person(s) to keep playing (there is a cue of multiple slots for drawings to be guessed and to be drawn.
-letters are not shown at the beginning, so players can guess anything...but as time goes on, hints appear as additional letters, added hangman-style (and you can see on the progress bar when extra letters are going to be added)
-in the list of prior drawings, you can see all the words the other person guessed
-all drawings (and the animations that comprise them) are saved indefinitely, can viewed from the app or linked to with a web address. So a very good or very funny drawing isn't lost when the turn is over!
-you can be matched with random people in addition to friends

**3** the "Live" games (there's no equivalent in in Draw Something)
-allow multiple people in a live chat room to take turns drawing
-these people can be random or a room you set up only with friends
-memes/conversations develop during the game creating a unique mini community (and preventing sleep)
-you see yourself moving up (or down) the relative rankings after every drawing

There are down-sides:
-only available on iOS (iPhone/iPad)
-fewer people own the game and thus fewer are available to play
-interface for starting games more complicated
-you can't have multiple pages per drawing (in Draw Something, if you delete a page, the other player sees the whole page being drawn before it is deleted...so you can draw ellipses and then continue with a drawing that presents a different way of thinking of the word)

So if you have an iOS device, I obviously highly recommend Charadium II for iPhone/iPod Touch and Charadium II HD for iPad

Unfortunately, this one's the killer for me. My gf has Android, and she's the only one I really play this sort of game with.

I play lots of games, especially async ones. You can add me on GC: geoelectric

The ping pong games seem to be still limited to 4 pictures each, but in help it says it should be unlimited...
Is this a bug?

I humbly request an icon if it's still available

My username is 'Kumeelyun' (pronounced 'chameleon')

I enjoy this game much more than Draw Something because of the more robust drawing tools at my disposal. Keep on fostering the community.

Thank you for your feedback on the update.
Also, you can download the Android version of the game from Samsung Apps and should soon be able to do the same on Play Store

JoelBarker - And so you have it as you asked. Have fun!
diamond1212, Nullroar - just let us know what your username is and we'll give you the icon.
Kumeelyun, would you like to have the icon?
