Ellen DeGeneres releases new game, Heads Up: Guess the word that's on your head from your friends' clues

Ellen DeGeneres has released an iPhone version of a game she likes to play on her show called Heads Up. It's simply a word guessing game where your friends try to get you to say the word on the screen by giving you hints. Only with Heads Up, you hold the phone above your head and it records video of your friend giving hints. You have sixty seconds to guess as many words as you can.

Since you'll be holding your iPhone above your head and you're not allowed to look at the screen, Heads Up includes some great controls for new cards: tilt your iPhone face down when you get a word correct and tilt it up to pass. At the end of the 60 seconds, Heads Up will show you a list of the words you got correct and passed. You can also choose to "Send to Ellen" to upload to Ellen's Heads Up Facebook page.

Heads Up includes 18 themed decks ranging from celebrities, movies, animals, accents, characters, and more.

Check out the video above of Ellen playing with Alison Sweeney on her show and let us know what you think!

LOL. It's like Blind Man's Bluff meets Charades. With video playback!

Be better if it was also offered for android devices. Guess I'll stick with similar app offered on my android.
