Facebook Gives 15-25 Free Game Credits



By Bryan Sanders posted Jul 16th, 2010 at 5:05PM

[Update]

Facebook free credits come in various amounts depending on the user. I have seen 15, 20, and 25 credits given for free. Each credit is valued at 0.10 cents USD.

Check your Facebook account to see how many credits you received. I play a lot of applications and I received 20 free credits. I cannot tell you if the credits are random or depend on how frequently you play game apps on Facebook.

Free Credits for Facebook Apps

Open a game application in Facebook today and you might notice a pop-up that says “Facebook Gave You (various amount) Free Credits”. Gamers can use these free credits to buy premium items in your favorite games.

My 20 free credits are valued at $2.00 USD. Is this a marketing strategy to keep users happy and keep them away from the upcoming Google Games? I’m not sure but whatever it is, thank you Facebook. Enjoy gamers!


Facebook Gave You 20 Free Credits (My Personal Account)

You received 20 free Facebook Credits (a $2.00 USD value). Use them to buy premium items in your favorite games on Facebook. Go play!

Google And Zynga To Join Forces



[Rumor]

There is a rumor buzzing around that Google has invested 100 million dollars or possibly more in social gaming giant Zynga. Google plans to join forces and launch a social online game hub called ‘Google Games’. This could be a risky move this late in the game race. I am not sure if Zynga will launch games exclusively on Google Games which is the only way I can see this working in Google’s favor.

Zynga as you may already know is the maker of FarmVille, Mafia Wars, and many other popular social games. Zynga has games on Facebook and they recently launched their popular FarmVille game on the iPhone. Zynga also recently launched FrontierVille which is already gaining popularity.

There are no further details of which game titles Google will offer. I am not sure why Google waited this long to jump on the Zynga wagon. What tricks does the search giant have up their sleeve that will entice new users and Zynga vets to their site?

Zynga launches FrontierVille!



By Bryan Sanders update posted Jul 15th, 2010 at 06:57PM

[Update] FrontierVille Surpasses 20 Million Users


Zynga’s FrontierVille


Calling all FarmVille fans…. Zynga launches a brand new game called FrontierVille. FrontierVille is a western themed game similar to FarmVille but this time you’re a pioneer. The game is a Beta version at the moment so expect some bugs.

You start the game by customizing your character exactly like the one in FarmVille except you can choose western clothing. The game is set on your plot of land with a lot of trees, grass, a wagon, bones and more. You collect different items like coins, stars (XP) or a piece of pie buy clicking on the right interactive item. You can buy energy to clear more land.

The wagon is fully customizable to suit your style. You may also feed animals for coins and XP. Head to the market to buy animals, decor and other items to make your land look the way you choose. The point of the game is to clear your land and make land improvements.

There are also goals set for clearing land such as: clear 3 tall grasses and cut down 2 trees to gain bonuses. Beware of those pesky varmints like groundhogs and rattlesnakes that jump out and try to ruin your day. The game becomes RPG like by letting you punch the rattlesnake or groundhog to keep them from attacking.

So far it is a pretty fun game and since this is beta there will be improvements and bug fixes soon. Check it out on Facebook.
