In the right hands, any canvas can be home to all kinds of creative and artistic wonders, but In the wrong hands, it can simply be a place for butt jokes (or worse). Such is the case with the mobile drawing game, Koongya Draw Party. On its own, this is a fun, if not formulaic, drawing game. Players have a limited time to try and guess what's being drawn on the screen, filling in the answer using a jumbled mix of letters. Some of these players will be able to pick up almost immediately. On others, the developers seemed to get a little too sly on the drawings, visualizing puns that would leave even bad dad joke connoisseurs groaning in pain. While the jokes might not always hit the mark, the single player is still a lot of fun. But it's the social features where the game shines brightest or crashes and burns.

There wouldn't be much of a "party" in Koongya Draw Party unless other people joined the mix. In adventure mode, the game supposedly uses the player's GPS location to find puzzles that other players have dropped in the vicinity. Curiously, even in the most remote areas, other players' puzzles pop up, which makes you wonder just how much the GPS matters. Still, it can be amazing to see the amount of ingenuity and just plain artistic talent other people have. But on the other end of the spectrum, one can expect to occasionally run into drawings that not only have nothing to do with the answer, but showcase lewd or offensive images. While there's the option to report puzzles, it only pops up at the end of the match after players have seen what can't be unseen. It's hard to fault the game for this, as it's an unfortunate side effect of relying on user-generated content. But it's still something parents should keep their eyes peeled for.
