Social game giant Zynga is continuing its push into the social mobile field with CityVille Hometown
, a spinoff of its popular Facebook urban simulation CityVille
available soon for iOS.
According to Zynga, CityVille Hometown
players will "create a bustling town, invite friends and in-game characters to be neighbors, and build out their communities."
The game will also interface with the original CityVille
on Facebook to "swap resources and energy and spend and receive special limited edition items if they prove to be exemplary citizens," says Zynga.
This is the second new mobile game from Zynga this month: Hanging With Friends
launched last week, and is among the top grossing apps
Other popular social mobile games from Zynga include Words With Friends
, Zynga Poker
, and the portable version of its popular FarmVille
A Canadian release of CityVille Hometown
is expected soon, with a global rollout that includes French, Italian, German and Spanish translations expected in the coming weeks.
