SimCity Reborn in SimCity Social

Well fans of diamond dash might like this EA classic game SimCity. EA has announced that the SimCity Social game is now available on Facebook. The popular social network now might have one of the most classic games reborn.

Install: SimCity Social

Game Trailer: www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2M1DAzDedk

 

People whom use to play SimCity on PC will like the new un linear paths. Meaning the game is a lot more random then its PC counterpart. We are sure EA will develop versions of this game as time goes on. We gather from the huge success from Zynga. That people live things like Farmville and other games. SimCity to us falls in the same category. You build stuff, visit people and the game develops as you play. This is in strong contrast to games like Diamond Dash.

SimCity Social Screenshot

 

Other than that SimCity Social has other random things you might encounter. EA’s release mentions fires, pollution and crime. Now i really hope that I’m not sitting in an important business meeting and some facebook email comes trough and tells me my house is on fire. Which one will I go to, My real house or my SimCity Social house?

The Other social aspect of EA’s facebook game is that you are able to interact with fellow players and facebook friends. You can visit their cities and scope out their crime rates. Then even going back further. Most 20 year olds won’t know what I am talking about. You can set relationships with cities. You can be a friend or foe. Much like the old Age Of Empires. I miss that game.

Then taking a feat neat features in the game. Talking about pollution and crime. Well if kids are playing this game that can certainly learn about being green. As the way to stop pollution in your SimCity Social game. Is to live green. Fight crime and kill fires.

To be honest this is the first real live experience game I have seen in years. SimCity Social deals with real life problems. Teaching kids and adults about pollution crime and the rest. I totally give EA the thumbs up on this game, awareness in each person playing this game is the aim here. That’s why this game is free. If there was ever a gaming company that has a social responsibility and done something about this. This game brings things to perspective. I can only think if someone like Apple would ever bring out a green iPhone it would be made out of sticks and recycled iPad boxes.

We mention this game and we will give it a decent 8/10

Zynga buys ShopTown Hero

Zynga Buys ShopTown HeroShopTown Hero and Wild needle Baught.

Well Zynga seems to have too much money or do they? Well Zynga has announced that it has acquired a company called Wild needle. For who if you that don’t know Wild needle is a niche social gaming development company with woman in mind. Zynga is obviously looking to expand the female niche market on the mobile phone platform. Their games typically run on iPhones and iPads. But we thing this purchase by Zynga is more of expanding their games into the Mobile Phone and Mobile Device market. If any of the compatitiors like Wooga is reading this, then watch out, they might just own the mobile gaming market in the next few years.

Wild Needle, which was created by the co-founder of successful game company Playdom Rick Thompson witch was bought in 2010 by Disney. Wild needle is known for games such as Shoptown hero. Wild Needle doesn’t have a hit like Zynga in Farmville or Diamond Dash from Wooga. But it seems like Zynga is very interested in Thompson and his crew.

Personally I think Zynga has realized the importance of social gaming on mobile phones and Thompson looks like the person to take the Zynga brand  further into the mobile gaming market.

Remember that that last purchase Zynga made was maybe a bit of a impulse purchase and didn’t go so well for them. I think they are making the right move into the mobile gaming market. my question was just always why some companies prefer to buy other companies for 3.8million instead of creating something new and exciting and putting 3.8 million dollars worth of research and development into a development informant. The answer to that is the certainly they want to get up and running immediately.

Well what about Wooga and their mobile gaming, where does that leave games like Wooga’s Diamond Dash then? Well for you that don’t know it is available for iPhones and iPad, check our diamond dash mobile page here.

Diamond Dash Hints and Tips

Diamond Dash Hints and Even More Tips

Diamond Dash Hints - Connect 6 or more Diamonds

The basic story of any Diamond Dash Hint is you need to get the highest number of points possible, you should aim to clear off the biggest possible combination of diamonds. This is massive as described in a previous article. But we talk about two other hints in this article. Looking for shapes and getting more hearts. Diamond Dash is all about connecting diamonds. Diamond Dash tips are all around the internet so we tried to add them in here for you.

Diamond Dash Hints – L Shape or T Shape

Diamond Dash Hint: Look For L Shapes

To level up and score high players must clear out gemstones quickly. The larger the L shape is the bigger the points boost, but don’t be only looking for “L” Shapes. Most of the time formations appear in small ‘L’ shapes. Look for two of the same colored blocks connected and one joined across. Scan the board for specific colors bunched together. Search horizontally, vertically, and diagonally for matching lines. Also look for “T” Shapes. it is basically two “L” Shapes put together.

If you get only 3 diamonds, you earn a measly 100 points, whereas a block of 4 diamonds will give you 400 points. Points can run into the thousands when you clear more than six diamonds. So remember to look for more connected Diamonds

Keep practicing is a Diamond Dash Hint.

We know you might be frustrated as everyone around you is beating your score. But don’t be, you will get there.

Keep practicing until it becomes second nature. In each round always try to increase your speed. Don’t slow down when a magic fire drops. Activate the flaming diamond while continuing to click on matches for bonus points. Playing on a consistent basis is crucial for mastering speed and winning techniques. There are different methods for dominating this game. These Diamond Dash tips and hints are just a few of the effective ways a player can clear out gems and level up fast.

Diamond Dash Hints – Get Friends With Hearts

You only have a few hears to start off with. but by asking friends for help will restore that quickly. Hearts or lives allow users to play another round. Each player starts with five hearts. Occasionally during leveling the magical panda guru will give out an extra life but it’s rare. Players have to wait until they’re restored again or ask friends to help out. A friend equals hearts. It’s important to have lots of generous pals.

If you have at least a six or so buddies willing to regularly send gifts you’re set. A large number of friends make it easy to gain daily lives without resorting to spamming. Nothing is worst than sending out dozens of requests and only receiving several hearts in return.

Wooga's Diamond Dash

Well we have previously written about how popular Diamond Dash is and how glad we were Wooga releases it on a Diamond Dash Mobile format. Well just this week I was reading that Diamond Dash has reached 11 million iOS downloads. This means for iPhone and Apple iPad devices.

With developers such as Zynga Wooga really out done themselves in this. The German developer behind games like Bubble Island and Diamond Dash, is very pleased with their teams results and the success of Diamond Dash. While wooga is the second largest social game maker in terms of daily players on Facebook, the developer has also carved quite the niche for itself on iOS. In just four months since release, Diamond Dash has seen over 11 million downloads. By no means is Wooga the size of Zynga. It shows that there is a lot of business potential in developing Social Games.

Diamond Dash is a Facebook Game Hit

VentureBeat reported that wooga is the largest social game developer in Europe, I must admit i don’t know of any others, but yet I don’t live in Europe. The further say that Diamond Dash on mobile devices sees a healthy amount of Facebook logins. According to wooga, 64 percent of players use the Facebook Connect features of Diamond Dash. Plus, those players are reportedly eight times more likely to spend money than those who aren’t logged in. Remember these people need to earn a living.

Wooga further said and released that Diamond Dash was downloaded to iPad and iPhone with iPad winning the download race. Diamond Dash downloads by device: More than 100,000 players are using the new iPad (which the game was updated for) and the iPhones account for 51 percent of downloads. The iPad line eeked out 13 percent of the download share. So, Diamond Dash has been downloaded a helluva times. With numbers like this, we wouldn’t be surprised to see more on iPhone where this gem came from.

Diamond Dash High Score Achived

How to Score High with Diamond Dash Tips

In order to score high earning multiple power-ups is essential. The secret to hitting magic fires is speed. A meter at the top of the screen displays how close a player is to accumulating a power-up. If possible it’s best to play Diamond Dash with the sound on.

As gems are cleared a buzz rings. Instead of glancing up and away from the board gamers can listen to the chimes for clues. Quick consistent tones mean you’re going at a good pace and will be rewarded soon. The musical tone slows down when a player is stumped. A tick tock effect starts when the timer is about to buzz. Playing with the sound eliminates the need to look up at the clock or meter to monitor progress. The faster you play the better the odds.

Diamond Dash Tips What’s is Diamond Dash

If you don’t know – Diamond Dash is a social puzzle game by Wooga. Comparable to Bejeweled Blitz players have exactly 60 seconds to match three or more gemstones of the same color. When you find an adjoined match they simply click on one of the blocks for the entire row to disappear. it is very similar to the old connect 4 game. More squares will fall down from the top of the box as matches are found. The main objective of the game is to eliminate gems as fast as possible. Occasionally power-ups are dropped in the form of a flaming diamond. This is called the magic fire power-up. Clicking on it will automatically explode surrounding matches.

As mentioned it is very similar to the connect 4 game of years gone by. Now it is just a bit more tricky and you have more axis to play of of. We hope you enjoy Diamond Dash
