MakeMeSay - Word Party Game - Promo codes befor new version

Hi every one I have a new version of my game coming soon so I wanted to give away some of my last few promo codes and get the word out. I built the game since I wanted a good game to be able to play with a group of people when I was with family or at a party. The game is sort of like Catch Phrase where you have to make your team guess the word on the screen without saying any part of the word of rhyming. However I changed the rules and how the games works to make it more iPhone friendly. In the original game and in a lot of the other Catch Phase clones you get one word and once you get it you pass it over to the other team and the last team with it loses, like hot patato. However, I thought passing around a $200+ devce would be a BAD idea, especially if alcohol is involved, lol. So you get a user selectable number of words and for each word you get you score a point, if you get all the words in the time allowed you get a bonus point. Once you round is done you pass it over to the next team and they go, rush so no worry about dropping the device. You can select the number of teams, words, time, number of rounds, categories, and even if the words are hard or easy. So very customizable!! Also, you can even resume a game if you get a call or someone hits the home key by accident.

The interface is dead simple to use, so easy for even a first time player or someone with a few too many. Three button "Pass, Next Word", "Got it, Next Word", and "I Messed Up, Disqualify Word" for when you make a mistake. The game keeps score so no need to worry about that.

My new version which should be out any day now (submitted a week ago) adds 2 more categories and 1000 more words.

I have had 3 reviews so far and all have been positive. I have also had a bunch of forums members try out the game and like it. BTW, thanks TouchArcade members with the help on the interface.

If you are a reviewer for a site please PM me and I can get you a promo code.

Grabbed XL9EHFLETR7M, thanks!

I really love Catch Phrase so I'm sure I'll love this. But judging by the screenshot, the interface is really really ugly. :-P

What don't you like about the interface? I was going for a fun colourful toy like design with big buttons and simple. Is it the colours?

I just think the entire thing look very unpolished and amatuer. You can accomplish the fun and colorful theme while making it look like polished and neat. I'm not an artist so honestly I couldn't really do any better, but I think it would help if they were redone. I personally probably wouldn't buy the game if I saw a screenshot with the interface you have. I'm sure you could get someone to create something for you, it wouldn't take much time if they're good with photoshop. It's a very simple interface, so creating new graphics for the backgrounds, font, and buttons would be pretty easy.

One thing I'd like to see added is the ability to review all the words after a round is over so each time can make sure the other team didn't cheat. You could just pretend that they got the word and press next.

Thanks for the input. I will take a look and play around with the graphics some more. So far I have had very few people mention the interface but I will see what I can do to make it more polished. If you do think of anything specific that you don't like once you have had more time to try it out let me know.

This game has been on my iPod for a while...I'm still waiting to get a chance to play it with some friends.... I'm definitely playing it though when I get a chance . It really seems like a great game.

BTW, I was going through the questions though thinking of all the hints I could give that rhymed with the given words until I saw in the rules that you can't use rhyming words...haha .

Enk does have a point I guess...I didn't noticed it as much from a buyers view since I got a code for this game a while back. I liked it before, but I was viewing it as a game I got for free.

I think the main thing you need to work on jcp is the fonts...make them more colorful (like blocks and shadows and borders, not just colored font)...and also maybe a little more light on the buttons.

I think if you change the color it will look a lot better. Right now they are too dark. Make them lighter and more fun. That will help brighten it.

Thanks for the input. I am going to read some Photoshop tutorials this weekend and see what I can do to improve the interface to make it look more polished. I will probably reply back to my original thread with sample screenshoots if you want to give m some feedback.

Also, the new version has been approved, so it should be online soon.
