Zapak Digital Entertainment, which runs an online gaming portal Zapak.com, has launched a Facebook application (Apps.Facebook.com/ZapakGames) that will allow users to play more than 30 different games from Zapak on the social networking site. The application will also allow users to flaunt their gaming skills through ‘trophy cabinet’, a feature that shows the number of trophies won by a user in each game, to friends.
To play the games, a Facebook user would first need to add the Zapak application to his or her profile. The application allows users to select games and challenge their friends including those who haven’t installed the Zapak application. For this application, Zapak is focusing primarily on casual gaming which includes sports, arcade, strategy and action games like Ice Hockey, Street Soccer, Speedway Racing and School Cricket.
Deepak Abbot, vice president, product, Zapak.com, has said, “Zapak has always believed in reaching out to all gaming enthusiasts and provide them with the best gaming content available. Many of our users visit Facebook frequently and this application will offer them their favourite games even when they are not on Zapak.com. With this they can challenge all their friends for all games and publish their wins to show it off on their profile.”
