Zynga today brought its popular city-building social game CityVille
to the Google+ network, marking the second game to be released on the service from the social gaming giant.
Social games for Google+ originally launched back in August
with 16 titles available, including Zynga Poker
, Rovio's Angry Birds
and PopCap's Bejeweled Blitz
Now Zynga has followed its poker title up with another of its popular Facebook apps. When CityVille
originally launched on Facebook last year, it saw over 290,000 users
in the first 24 hours.
Zynga has continued to push the game since, with a launch in China over the summer
via a partnership with popular internet service portal Tencent.
A spin-off title called CityVille Hometown was also launched
in the summer, with users able to interact with players of the original CityVille
to swap resources.
With the release of CityVille
on Google+, this now brings the total games available via the service up to eighteen.
