Having landed on the Canada and Sweden App Store earlier this month, a highly-anticipated sequel to the popular Draw Something game is now available for download on the US App Store.

The original game pitted two players against each other in a word guessing challenge where each player gets assigned three random words and would draw a picture to convey the guessword.

The sequel contains more than 5,000 new words, all-new 9-letter words, the new free draw mode, a gallery of your favorite drawings, additional drawing tools like pixel pen, crayon, marker, stamps and much more…

The blurb focuses on the new social component:

For the first time ever, share your drawings in a feed for all of your friends to see! Follow your friends, celebs, and discover new artists – there’s always something new, funny and inspiring to check out.

Here’s a nice trailer.

Should you wish to disable social content, check out Restricted Mode which disables both the Social Feed and your gallery using a passcode.

Other features include:

• Gallery: A collection of all of your favorite drawings in one place

• Social Feed: Follow your friends, celebs, and discover new artists. Stay up to-date on all the latest drawings and games from your feed.

• All New Ways to Play: Earn coins for playing the Daily Guess and Daily Draw

• Tons of New Words: Over 5,000 new words! Including all new 9 letter words and phrases for daily draw

• More Drawing Tools: Limitless creativity at your fingertips! Try out the Pixel pen, Pattern pencil, Stamps, Marker, Highlighter, Crayon and more. Plus, choose from over 100 vibrant colors

• Free Draw: Draw anything. Try out your new tools, create and share something amazing

• Restricted Mode: Disable the Social Feed and gallery using a PIN. You can still play turns with friends and contacts, but you won’t see any social content

You can download Draw Something 2 for the iPhone or iPod touch for three bucks a pop. There’s also a free version available. Paid one, in case you’re wondering, contains thousands of new words, free star and coin bonus, a free Sparkle pen and no advertising.

If you’re switching from a free to paid version, Draw Something 2 will retain your existing account, games, and colors.

The original Draw Something, available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone, has been something of a phenomenon, to say the least.

Developed by Omgpop, the game in the first five weeks after its launching saw twenty million downloads, hitting 50 million downloads in the fifty-five days after its release. To date, the game has amassed over a hundred million active users.

The success won Draw Something many accolades, including a Flurry App Spotlight Award in 2012. The social gaming giant Zynga snapped up Draw Something developer Omgpop for $180 million last year.

    yeah well unless it has some kind of recognition software that keeps people from simply writing the word.. this sequel will become just as stale as it’s predecessor.
