Android Fans - Hang No More: Zynga Launches Hanging With Friends on Android

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Today Zynga Inc. announced the launch of Hanging With Friends on the Android platform, giving players the opportunity to “hang” with a fresh pool of friends and random opponents. Starting today, players can download the game for free in the Android Market.

Launched in June 2011 by the Zynga with Friends studio, Hanging With Friends offers a unique and social twist to the traditional Hangman game with colorful characters, brain-teasing fun, and a way to truly guess how well you know your friend's favorite words. Hanging With Friends became the most downloaded game in the Apple App Store for iPhone during its first week and has continued to heat up friendly rivalries amongst friends throughout the summer.

Hanging With Friends challenges players to take turns creating and guessing words to stump, amuse and impress friends. Players choose their avatar from a line-up of delightfully colorful characters and then join their opponents in a race to see who can hang on the longest. Guess correctly and survive to play another round. Miss a word, and it's one step closer to the end! Players can also grasp at strategic lifelines that offer crucial hints and watch instant replays that provide a glimpse into their opponent's tactics.

“Zynga is committed to offering great mobile social game experiences for players everywhere and strives to build the best entertainment experiences across multiple platforms,” said David Ko, Chief Mobile Officer at Zynga. “Bringing Hanging With Friends to Android devices means our players will have the ability to play and engage with even more of their friends and family wherever they are and whenever they want.”

Hanging With Friends will be cross-platform, giving players on Android and iOS devices the ability to play against more friends, foes, family and random opponents. Players can look for fellow word warriors through their existing With Friends account or utilize Facebook Connect to easily find new friends to take on. The features will be the same on both platforms, including the ability to play up to 20 simultaneous games at a time, in-game chat and push notifications.

Zynga aims to leverage the unique attributes of mobile devices to deliver best-in-class experiences for players and provide people with the opportunity to play and engage with their friends anytime and anywhere.

The Android version of the game is now available in the Android Market as a free download. For game assets and additional information, please contact press@zynga.com, or visit: https://zynga.box.net/shared/3fdb21ftjatobrjcofbp
