We’ve all sat around the living room table with friends, glasses in hand and music playing. The night is off to a great start, and everyone is ready to laugh their heads off through some classic gaming. Only to discover, that you’ve only got 51 cards in your standard 52 card deck.
You probably lost a card somewhere between Euchre and Quarters, and now you’re stuck without a proper game to spend the evening.
Well, that’s where Frills, from Kiraline Inc., comes in to the picture to save the day. This app brings a variation of charades to the digital-world, and compliments hilarious gameplay with high-end tech oriented integration.
Users get to go a few steps further than other ‘charade-equivalents’ by having the option to record the game and share it directly to contacts or Facebook friends. Frills is a welcomed addition to gaming world, and is a must download.
This app really gains some leverage with its comprehensive features and attention to its user base.
By uploading user videos to the developers FB page, players can participate in new competitions and win prizes in real-time.
This level of attention to detail is bound to win ‘Frills’ a substantial fan base over the long term.
The game itself features charade-esque card categories in subjects like ‘Animals’, ‘Movies’ ‘Pantomime’, ‘Music’ and more. The app itself was released just a few days ago, and allows for fun, frenetic gameplay, that’s an absolute pleasure.
Concept and Functionality:
The central concept here is really quite simple. Users hold the phone up to their heads, and have to guess the given concept or word, without looking at it themselves. While the general idea of charades isn’t too complicated, the game can lend itself to some real difficulty and hilarity at the same time.
This game is loads of fun, and is brand new experience every time. With brand new competitions and categories offered by Frills all the time, all you’ve got to do is find a few buddies to play with and you’re all set.
This game runs fluidly and has a bright and pleasing layout that helps to set the festive mood overall. Playing several times, we received no crashes or lagging, and that’s always a huge plus when playing a game that requires real-time participation.
Other charade games do exist, but Frills is prepared to carve out a niche base of its own with brand new layouts, categories, and immaculate branding overall.
We’ve given this app a top-notch rating, because it’s come out of the gate swinging. We’ve played a bunch already, and had a blast each time, receiving no errors and immediately being hooked into the hilarious atmosphere created by the highly skilled Frills developers.
We’d like to see the category base continue to expand, and see a continuous rollout of user-based competitions and giveaways.
This should help to boost Frills off the ground even further, as it begins to persuade more users to join in on the fun.
Frills requires iOS 4.3 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
