Let’s Be Honest:Party Game is the next big thing at your weekend party. Invite some friends over and let the fun begin.
Available for free through the iTunes Store, this game can also be played with friends who aren’t necessarily within your immediate vicinity.
Let’s Be Honest, from Blackwattle Company Pty Ltd, is a game that forces its players to do exactly as it says: be honest with each other.
Specifically, players create their own accounts and can then create games within a specific circle of friends (up to twelve people at a time). Since this app is designed as a party game, it really is meant to be played with friends near you, but creating games for remote players is also a possibility.
Two free decks of cards are offered with the basic Let’s Be Honest game download, one of which is a bit more scandalous than the other. (As a whole, this app is aimed at more mature audiences and is not meant as a game for children.)
Once a card deck is chosen and a game created, players all must pick among other players (or themselves) who most fits as the answer to that particular question.
All players then hold up their phones to their foreheads to show how many votes they received for that question; each person who picked the most voted for answer gets points.
While these directions might sound a little confusing, getting the hang of Let’s Be Honest really takes no time at all, and I was very impressed with the execution of this gaming concept.
Let me be perfectly clear – Let’s Be Honest is the next big party game.
Appearance and Layout:
The design of Let’s Be Honest: Party Game is a pretty minimalistic, which works well with its very straight-forward game concept. Minimal time is put into providing users with detailed instructions however, and this might make it a bit more difficult for any iOS users not already familiar with similar gaming concepts.
Still, once you’ve gotten used to this app, its layout definitely helps it more than hinders it; minimal time is spent being distracted by pointless graphics (since there are none) and the black background screens really fit well with the overall feeling of the app.
Let’s Be Honest is a free game, with optional in-app purchases also offered. This really is the ideal setup for the app, as it allows first-time users to get to try out the game prior to making any financial investments.
The questions within the first two free deck seemed somewhat limited, particularly if you really wanted to spend a lot of time playing Let’s Be Honest, but the availability of these expansion decks really does make this app one of excellent value.
While it’s really aimed at users who are familiar with board games like Cards Against Humanity and is definitely not appropriate for younger players, it is a fun app for its target audience.
Let’s Be Honest: Party Game requires iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
