There’s a new Mayor on Facebook with SimCity Social!

June 20, 2012

Like us on Facebook and get the latest news and free gifts for fans only!

Whether you were a previous SimCity lover or you just love playing city-building games, SimCity Social has something for you. You have the freedom to create beautiful, sprawling cities that come to life based on the choices you make as Mayor. For the inner city-lover in you, you can create a booming metropolis, filled with high-rises and luxurious condos. If you have ever dreamed about becoming an industrial tycoon, you can create a city filled with factories. For the environmentally conscious tycoons, there are greener factories that emit less pollution. For those that are just driven by production despite the damages to the environment, we have heavily toxic factories that probably wouldn’t pass a modern day smog test.

Whatever you choose to build, your citizens will react to those decisions. Too much pollution? Too much crime? Poor fire safety? Your citizens will tell you how they feel and push back. You choose what kind of city you want and watch as it comes to life and responds to your decisions. It’s up to you, what’s going to be the story behind your city?

SimCity Social is taking the idea of playing with your friends to a whole new level. Simply visitng your friends cities and using them for resources is so last year, ever want more? More City, Less Ville, is what SimCity Social is bringing to you. You can choose to build friendly relationships with your friends, leave them surprises and perform nice actions in their cities. Or you can develop intense rivalries with your frenemies!

It’s Pizza Time in Restaurant City!

February 23, 2011

Restaurant City fans are in for a real culinary treat this week as Playfish’s widely popular cooking strategy game heads into a Venetian theme and launches a new feature: The Pizzeria!

Starting this week players will have the opportunity to unlock the amazing Pizzeria – the ultimate cooking utility, which includes a fast stove and drink dispenser.

But, of course no great Pizzeria can be built overnight! Players will be able to complete building this grand collectible over time, unlocking various components of the Pizzeria by mastering a series of recipes.

The first recipe to master is the delicious Pizza Vegetariana, which will unlock the basic version of the Pizzeria. From there, continue to unlock and master other recipes by collecting ingredients from friends or by earning them through the game! Be sure to check into Restaurant City to find out what recipe is next on the list to be mastered!

The Pizzeria also comes with its own mini game – the Dough Boy!

A happy chappy, he’ll help the chef at the Pizzeria by preparing the pizza dough! Wait for him to highlight with a green border that tells you he’s ready to toss some dough in the air. When you click him, make sure you click the dough in time so that he catches it! Can you imagine what will happen if he doesn’t…?

Restaurant City has come out with great collectibles over time – the Sushi Bar, Lounge Bar and Karaoke Bar, even a Bowling Alley. With the new Pizzeria, Restaurant City continues to put the fun into one of Facebook’s most popular cooking games.

Madden NFL Superstars: Card Collection! Collect your favorite NFL teams for a chance at the ultimate rewards!

November 4, 2010

Does the thrill of tearing open a pack of player cards bring joy and excitement to you? What about the anticipation of being one player short of collecting an entire NFL team? If you’ve answered “yes” and “yes,” you’ll be a huge fan of ‘Card Collection,’ the newest feature in Madden NFL Superstars!

Like in the traditional card collection experience, ‘Card Collection’ gives you the opportunity to collect all your favorite NFL players, with the added bonus of reaping serious in-game loot, including coins, limited addition cards, and of course, bragging rights!

Here’s how ‘Card Collection’ works:
The Collection tab brings you to the first of four NFL Player Books, each containing eight NFL teams.  The Player Book reveals how many Player Cards you “own” and how many you’ve “collected.”
While ‘Card Collection’ has the familiarity of the traditional card collecting experience, the feature also offers players a new and exciting way to collect players and teams. To build out your collections, visit each team and drag a player card onto the designated card slot. Once a player card is added into the collection, the card will illuminate – you can’t do that with traditional cards!
When you’ve collected an entire NFL team, cash in your Player Cards to receive your bonus!
Rewards, rewards, rewards!
The first NFL Player Book gets you 50,000 coins for each team collected. As you progress through each Player Book, your rewards increase up to 1 million coins!. Each Player Book requires that you have a certain number of friends playing the game, so get out there and recruit your friends to play Madden NFL Superstars!

Even more exciting is that Player Book #3 and #4 not only award a huge coin bonus for each team collection, but you also get the coveted Elite Card from that team! Elite Cards provide an Overall Team Rating bonus, similar to Limited Edition Cards, but they never expire. These cards, some of the highest-rated players in the game, can only be earned through Card Collection, so start collecting now!

Most Haunted Pets: Garden Edition

October 13, 2010

A little while ago we asked players to design a spooky vegetable, flower or tree to go into Pet Society just in time for Halloween. The winner of each category would earn themselves a frighteningly large amount of Playfish Cash — 500 to be precise — as well as eternal fame as their hard work is made available for the game’s millions of players around the world to buy.

So who won? Let’s hand it over to Eepette, the host of Most Haunted Pets, to find out!

“Thanks Mark! Welcome to the very special garden edition of Most Haunted Pets, the show that visits the most mysterious and eerie homes in all of Pet Society and brings supernatural discoveries to you live on camera! This week we’re going to be taking a look at haunted gardens, so expect terrifying trees, fearsome flowers and, er, very scary vegetables! Our first stop is a spooky vegetable patch. If we wait a few moments, I’m sure something scary’ll happen pretty soon.”

The camera settles on a patch of potatoes. Time is set to fast forward, but nothing happens. Suddenly the camera spins wildly and a carrot flies past.

“Did you see that?! A carrot just flew through the air!”

The footage is played back in slow motion. On the second pass, the host of the show, Eepette, is visible in the side of the frame throwing the carrot.

“Well that was amazing! Now I just need to go to the bathroom….I’ll be back in a second. Keep looking, and listening… I said listening for anything scary. BRB!”

Eepette runs enthusiastically out of sight. Suddenly, loud knocking sounds can be heard. The camera whirls around to focus on a large shimmering gray tree. The footage is played three times for good measure, each time slower than the last. Three Moody Ghost Vegetables can be clearly seen in a distant part of the vegetable patch, giggling, sobbing and growling in equal parts. The camera now focuses on the knocking sound, while the camera operator mutters shrilly into the mic that he’s absolutely terrified. Encouraged on by the rest of the crew he starts to approach the sound. It seems to be emitting from behind the tree. Terrified, the crew pace around the tree to find Eepette knocking a piece of wood on the tree’s trunk. She drops the piece of wood when she sees them approach.

“Oh my, did you hear that knocking sound? I heard it all the way from the bathroom, what do you think it could be?”

The half-speed replay shows Eepette startled and dropping the piece of wood in slow motion.

“Hmm, must have been….like….a ghost or something. Anyway let’s go check out those flowers!”  As she points to the flowers she absently picks a Gummy Ghost Fruit from the shimmering tree and eats it. “Hmm, spookily delicious whatever they are!”

Next, the crew paces over to a flowerbed across the garden from the tree. By this point Eepette seems to be running out of ideas. “Wooooo, I’m the Green Garden Ghost!,” as she wafts a leaf in front of the camera. The crew is becoming visibly frustrated and embarrassed.

“That’s a leaf, Eepette.”

“Yes it’s a Leaf Ghost.”

“No, it’s just a leaf.”

Eepette stares at the leaf still in her hands for a few moments then appears to lose interest and flings it into the flowerbed. As the crew starts to return to the Most Haunted Pets van, a single black rose spits out the leaf and smiles that chesire-cat smile.

“Well that’s about all we’ve got time for! Over to you, Mark!”

Er, thanks Eepette. Anyway moving swiftly on, congratulations to our winners, MissGlitter who designed the spooky Spirits Tree, CarlosEP creator of the devilish Black Cat Rose, and Danzefly the evil mastermind behind the Moody Ghost Vegetables. Each of our ghoulish winners have won 500 Playfish Cash, as well as their designs featured in Pet Society!

We were truly bowled over by the sheer talent on display during this competition. We only wish we had time to put ALL of your ideas in the game. Really amazing!See you next time and have a spooktacular Halloween! (Hey it’s Halloween. Bad puns are allowed at Halloween).
