redletterdave writes "Zynga has reportedly shelled out $200 million to acquire OMGPOP, the New York-based gaming company responsible for the turn-based Pictionary-style game called "Draw Something," which has risen to the very top of the iOS and Android App Stores. The acquisition is perfect timing for Zynga now that the spotlight is on OMGPOP, which announced on March 20 that Draw Something is the No. 1 Top Paid iPhone App, No. 1 Top Free iPhone App, the No. 1 Top Free iPad app in the games category, and the No. 1 Top Free App on Google Play (formerly "the Android Market"). The game is also a Top 5 app in over 80 countries. It's an extremely impressive feat, and it's even more impressive when you consider that the app is only five weeks old."
