Sometimes the simplest of activities can be loads of fun. That's the case with Face Party, a stylish and goofy app that lets you create wild and wooly pictures of monstrous pals to tweak and share. Charm ultimately wins out over substance here, but that shouldn't stop you from tinkering with terrifying tomatoes, fidgeting with mega mustachioed men, or drafting evil cat-pigs to your heart's content.
The bulk of your time in Face Party is inevitably spent plunking down oddball facial features on different pre-generated faces. That alone is quite amusing, given the tremendous volume of eyes, eyebrows, noses, mouths, accessories, and word bubbles to work with. Many accoutrements have their own little animations, from shifty eyes to smirking mouths, and these subtle movements add great personality to the crazy characters you come up with. When you tire of building off of the 18 cutely crafted face templates included in the app, you can snap fresh photos or import them into the app to add silly features to real-life mugs.
Face Party's one cool practical use is that the creature head shots you craft are saved as square images that fit perfectly within the avatar slots for most social networking profiles. You can easily upload your saved creations to Facebook or email them for later use elsewhere. Otherwise, that's pretty much the extent of what Face Party has to offer, which won't be enough to keep everyone entertained for very long. It's limited, to be sure; but the great art style, simple interface, and catchy marimba jams in the background make it a pleasant package to play with. The younger set will likely get a lot more mileage out of it, though don't count yourself out due to adulthood.
The bottom line. Face Party is a cool little app that rewards your creativity with a few giggles, but its limited scope means it wont hold your attention for long.
iPad running iOS 6.0 or later
Adorable presentation. Lots of funny face parts to play with. Can turn faces into social media icons.
Not much to it once you dig through all of the templates and features.
