Zynga, the social gaming giant, has released details of its new social game Adventure World, expected to be launched in the next few weeks. The title is an Indiana Jones style strategy game in which players are required to discover historical artifacts to make virtual gold and experience points. If Adventure World turns out to be a success, Zynga may be in a much better position for its upcoming IPO, which remains stalled due to whirling a stock market.
The game is said to be much larger and more complex than all the previous titles from Zynga. The game is 40 times the size of largest version of Farmville and features five major environments. The precious artifacts are spread along 35 different maps and involves solving of puzzles and fighting the enemies on the way to the artifact collection. Adventure World is design to be played in full-screen mode and players are required to build strategies not only within the game but also in the selection of Facebook friends to join their team.
Adventure World also involves deep social experience. Players can recruit friends to join their team and make different contributions to one another’s progress. Players can also accumulate skills and items and share them with their friends. Adventure world is a bold new step from Zynga and it is expected to attract new players and keep everyone engaged longer for profit maximization.
To make its IPO as easy as slicing butter, Zynga could really use another big hit. Following is a short intro of the game.
