Zynga’s Scramble With Friends Launched For iPhoneBy: Chris Crum - January 5, 2012
Fans of Zynga’s Words With Friends (or Boggle) may be interested to know that the company just launched Scramble With Friends.
Even the icon for the game looks like Words With Friends, as to present a familiar experience for users of the popular Scrabble-esque game.
“Scramble With Friends takes one of Zynga’s earliest games and sprinkles the magic of ‘With Friends’ games to enhance play and bring players a raucously fun mobile social experience,” said David Ko, chief mobile officer for Zynga. “Our ‘With Friends’ franchise brings new twists to classic favorites and Scramble With Friends is no different. We’re dedicated to innovating in mobile social games and bringing more play into everyone’s day wherever and whenever they want.”
Scramble With friends is initially available for iPhone and iPod Touch. Zynga says it’s a made for mobile game, but I would not be surprised to see it make its way to Facebook as Words With Friends did last year. I’d also expect Android and iPad versions to be released in time, though the company made no mention of them.
The game features multi-round play, including the standard round one, double scores in round two and triple scores in round three.
This isn’t the only new game Zynga has. The company also announced the launch of Hidden Chronicles.
