Vancouver’s cheekily titled games studio Rude Boy Games has released their new addictive social collecting game, Zwonks, which uses friend-to-friend messaging as part of its gameplay. You collect virtual toys, called Zwonks, which can be customized, accesorised and shared with friends through Kik Messenger and email.
You unlock Zwonks by collecting Zwag sets (yes, as you can tell, parents everywhere will be utterly confused and mispronouncing things in this game, look forward to it). Players can gift, receive or buy Piñatas then whack them for a chance to win rare Zwag or Gemz that they can use to purchase Zwag.
So you can unlock more Zwonks through interacting with friends, as well as help others in the game, but you can also use it to share and boast about your awesome collection.
Kik Messenger is already quite a popular app on its own, with over two million users in the first three weeks. So for those looking for a way to spice up their Kik Messenger, this might just be the way to do it. You know, if you’re into Moshi Monsters and Neopets and all that.
