Ratings and Reviews
Created by Ellen DeGeneres, this riotous game-night challenge reinvents charades for the app generation. Pick a category, then hold your device up to your head, screen facing outward, and guess the words using your friends’ clues. Several categories are included, with many more available as In-App Purchases. Best of all, you can record and share videos of your friends’ increasingly frantic efforts to clue you in. Heads Up! puts a fun, fast-paced party starter in your pocket.
Limited Time Longer Rounds?
**With this update, there are now longer 90-second rounds! That sounds like an awesome idea and I can’t wait to try it with my friends. Why must this option be a limited time offering? It would be awesome to have more options — I’m thinking 120 seconds as well as a 30 second option — not to just have 90 seconds for “a limited time”. Oh well.**
Heads Up is one of my favorite games to play with my friends as it’s always a ton of fun. I have purchased quite a few decks that match my interests and those of some of my friends, in an attempt to have a well-rounded selection for them to choose from… and so far it’s been really good, but I unfortunately think I need to purchase a few more to make the selection better as some of my friends can never find a deck they really want to play.
Custom decks are amazing! My only complaint there is that you have to pay 99¢ for each one of them… and I’m not about to do that, especially when there are so many other decks that I’d rather buy than duplicates of the same blank DIY deck.
Sound effects need adjustment
I love playing this game with my friends, but it’s disappointing that we can’t hear ourselves in the videos because the game sound effects dominate the microphone. We would save and share more videos if we could hear ourselves in them. You could have more people sharing videos and promoting your product if your clientele were satisfied with the recording of each round. We recommend there be a setting on your game when’re you could control the volume of the sound effects or chose to remove them completely in order for the people in the recordings of each round to be heard when the game sound effects come on. Watching ourselves having fun playing this game is half the reason we play. I hope the next update resolved this issue.
