We Should Be Ashamed That Draw Something Players Don't Know What Metroids Look Like

Zynga's acquisition of OMGPOP today revealed some other interesting tidbits of news. Did you know, for instance, that "starfish" is one of the most popular words drawn in Draw Something? I have never even encountered the word myself. True story.

Amongst the least guessed words is "pounce". I've always successfully gone with the cat pounce: two cats, one with an arched back leaping on top of the second, sleepy cat. Hasn't failed yet.

Look below for some more fun facts about Draw Something as announced today by Zynga.

Note: I'm not sure what a "god tornado" is or how to draw it, but I'll venture a guess that it's a typo.

  • In the last week, more than 1 billion drawings have been created.
  • Draw Something had three drawings per second the day the game launched.
  • Yesterday, Draw Something has over 3,000 drawings per second at its peak.
  • Draw Something is the #1 word game in 84 countries according to the Apple App Store — shout out to Sweden and Norway for being the first two countries to recognise Draw Something's greatness. Nordic Love!
  • The most popular words in Draw Something are: Starfish, pregnant, hangman, six pack, boom box
  • The least popular word in Draw Something is latrine
  • The best guessed words in Draw Something are: Rainbow, catfish, sun, fish, house, god tornado
  • The least guessed words in Draw Something are: Oar, Metroid, Warhol, pounce, polaroid, meathead, Autobots


    What the heck is a God Tornado?!?

      i think there was meant to be a comma after god, as in two different words...

    To start, Samus is not a Metroid.

      I love Metroid, she shoots aliens and doesn't afraid of anything.

        Except that flying girl from aliens...Riply?

    So has Zynga's acquisition resulted in me losing all my previously unlocked colours?

    Hopefully they can add a little purpose to the game. Unlocking colours is a decent enough reward, but not a big enough carrot to keep me playing.

    I've seen people draw what they think are Metroids twice. Both times they thought it was some kind of meteor.

    I drew a metroid for Greenius or someone a while ago.. it's a little hard to convey the message without a little hint though.. would be easier with a stylus, but more often than not, they come out looking like a weird jellyfish! ;)

    Stuff metroid what about Autobots are people retarded...

    Bought by Zynga = uninstalled.

    Metroid is Halo's girlfriend.
