Zynga introduced its Tiny Royale game on Snap Games, which is Snap’s gaming platform. The casual game’s developer used to leverage Facebook’s popularity to boost its platform. Now, it is turning its effort to Snap to grow even further.
Zynga’s Tiny Royale on Snap Games
The possible goal for its introduction is to improve the popularity of Snap Games. The Snap platform made Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to be successful.
Players can pick custom characters. They can also create their own teams with their friends. Or you can battle alone for a two-minute round. By battling alone or with your squad, you can gather loot and shoot your way to victory.
At a time, a maximum of players that can battle will be 30. The overall gameplay is similar to other battle royale games. That is, there are maps that shrink in size until one player or team prevails.
Zynga said in a statement that its company is thrilled to be one of the first companies to introduce an exciting game on Snapchat. Its team is excited to the battle royale genre into the fast-paced platform of Snap Games.
Snap Games includes a variety of third-party titles. Players can start playing Tiny Royale by going to the Snapchat messaging feature. They can use voice and text-based features throughout the gameplay.
In the summer, the company will add a matchmaking feature to be called Tiny Royale Leagues. This feature will place all competitors into groups of 100.
They are divided into 20 tiers. Players will have to battle to move to a higher ranking. As they do so, they earn rewards and trophies, depending on their performance.
Other titles you can catch on Snap Games would include Bitmoji Party. In here, you can play in a series of wacky games.
The Snake Quad is a different game that lets you work with your crew to ensure you will be the last ones standing. If you are into zombies, then Zombie Rescue Squad is a perfect match. Your goal here is to rescue all survivors in a city infested with zombies.
Snap Games is not a different app. Rather, it is integrated into the Snapchat app. You can launch it by clicking the Chat bar. From there, you can play with your friends instantly. There is no installation required.
While in the Snap Games feature, you can see the friends that you can play with. You can also send them a chat message or talk to them through the voice chat. The platform feels like you are playing on the same screen while sitting shoulder to shoulder.
This new platform is a new revenue stream for the company. You can play games while you text and talk to your friends. This platform is the result of acquiring PrettyGreat, which is a game studio in Australia.
For Snap, the gaming platform is about discovering new ways for friends to get together online and play together.
