Developed by San Francisco based Impending, best known for their Clear list management app, Heads Up! may turn out to be a great party game.
The game starts with a guesser picking a category like “Act it Out” or “Pop Star Overload” and placing their iPhone on their forehead facing out toward the other players. The players are given answers and must get the guesser, the one holding the phone, to guess the answer without saying it directly or rhyming with it. Now here’s the real genius of this app, while the game is going on the front facing camera is capturing what the players are doing and saying and recording it as a video. Once the game is complete that video can be saved, shared, or even sent to Ellen for possible use on her show. What a great idea.
