OMGPOP Bought by Zynga

Guess what? You know that new crazy game called 'Draw Something' by OMGPOP? Unsurprisingly, it has been bought by Zynga (creators of Farmville and Mafia Wars) for an expected $200 mil.

Zynga Games

'Draw Something' is the latest game on the Android and iPhone has acquired over 35 million downloads since its debut on both platforms. 'Draw Something' has been No. 1 top spot on both platforms and it seems to be not stopping. 'Draw Something' is categorised as a social game cross between Pictionary and Words With Friends, which is a great concept really. I personally have been playing 'Draw Something' for a while now, non-stop everyday. Although the app still has some minor bugs and the occasional crash, it is still addictive. I am not surprised that OMGPOP was bought by Zynga because the company has been non-stop on the rise in the web-based and smartphone games platforms.
