Vampire Wars Wings

Wings are now available in Vampire Wars for both male and female avatars. Red, Black and Purple wings are available to be crafted and you need to get the artisans to craft your wings. After crafting and collecting any pair of wings you can equip your avatar with the same. 


To craft wings you will need Devil's Hide, which is a free giftable. There are six ways to collect Devil's Hide.
1. Gifting Mystery Boxes
2. Harvesting them from the collector.
3. Receiving drops from Akem's Gamble.
4. Mandy's blood magic Wheel
5. Ancient Vampiric chest found in missions.
6. Elders will be offering all three colors of Devil's hide for Favor Points.


You must also have the necessary Devil's Hide for the Artisans to craft the wings for you.



If you choose to exchange Devil’s Hide to get the Artisans to begin crafting your Wings, the process will take seven days.  If you are eager, you can have your friends help you reduce the crafting time, or you may bribe the Artisans with Favor Points to craft them faster.

Bonuses:

For the Black Wings the bonus is +10 defense and +5 rage.

For the Purple Wings the bonus is +10 energy and +5 rage.

For the Red Wings the bonus is +10 attack and +5 rage.

For completing and crafting all three pairs of Wings, you will be rewarded with an additional stat bonus of +10 Attack, +10 Defense and +5 Rage.

If you would like to preview the Wings on your avatar before you craft them, you can check out the avatar shop where you can try the Wings on.  To locate this feature, go to the Avatar Shop on the “New Items” tab or the “Other” tab.  The “Try On” button will be available for you to sample what the fantastic new wings will look like on your avatar.

FarmVille Bushels and Farmer's Market

FarmVille now has a farmer's market. So if you are at level 15 or higher the farmer's market allows you to collect bushels from harvested crops that can be used to get bonuses for yourself or give them to neighbors. To collect bushels all you need to do is harvest your regular crops in the same way you can harvest bunches from flower crops. You will be able to collect bushel;s from all permanent crops available in the market. Once you find your first bushel you will get a market stall. If you do not wish to wait you also purchase a market stall in the building section of the market for either coins or farm cash. The limit to market stalls is five. You farm can have a maximum of five stalls. Each stall you have can sell one type of crop. Once you have your market stalls in place you can then start collecting bushels to use yourself or let your neighbors collect by harvesting your crops. 


To access the market stalls menu you would need to select farmers market from it's pull down menu. Inside you can see what bushels you've collected from your neighbors under the my bushels section. What bushels your neighbors have available in the get bushels section and what bushels your stall is currently offering in the my stalls section. Clicking the get bushels button will show you what bushels all your neighbors are currently offering. Clicking any available bushels will display a list of bushels that each neighbor has available and how long their stall is open for. Selecting a specific neighbor will take you to their stall. Bushels taken from your friends stall are added to your inventory and can be seen in the my bushels section of your stall. 


Once you collect bushels either from your farm or your neighbors they are all stored in your inventory. You can hold up to 50 bushels in your inventory. Each bushel can be shared or used. Clicking the "Share" button on any bushel will allow you to offer up a number of bushels of your choosing to your friends via a feed. Clicking the "Use" button consumes one of the bushels and gives you a bonus. The type of bonus will depend on whether you have access to the crop or not. If the bushel used came from a crop that you did plant you receive a bonus of +1 mastery whenever that crop is harvested on your farm for two hours. If you have already mastered this crop the bonus is +1 Experience Point per harvest. If you use the bushel of a crop that you are not high enough of a level to play in you'll receive a licence to plant that crop that lasts for 2 hours. 


Whenever neighbors use your stall you can choose to receive a reward of your choice. If you neighbors have used your market stall an arrow will point to the appropriate stall. Viewing the interior of your stall will show you the three rewards that you can choose from. Coins, Fuel and Experience Points (XP).

PetVille Attic and Tahiki beaches now available.

All Attics have now been unlocked in PetVille. You do however need to be at level 10 at least before you can enter and play around. So if you have crossed level 10 and have gained entry into the attic you have a few surprises in store. You also need keys to enter Tahiki. Once you enter your attic to explore you are asked for keys to visit Tahiki. The beaches of Tahiki are locked unless you open them with the keys. 


How do you get keys the answer is very simple ask your friends. The locks are of different colors and you need the corresponding colored key to open it. We see yellow, blue, orange, green and purple locks and these are the colored keys you need to open the beaches of Tahiki. 


Once your friends send you keys they would be kept in your storage area. Click on the key and drag it to the lock to open. 


So go on now and unlock the magic doors.


Magic Doors are available only in your attic.

FarmVille how to get the Wild Mustang and Wild Mustang Foal

FarmVille has now got Wild Mustangs roaming around and visiting farms. If you see a wild mustang on your farm you will need the help of 5 friends to wrangle her if you would like to keep her. There are also wild mustang foals.


So go and search your farm now for a chance to complete the challenge and get a wild mustang to keep on your farm. 


There is also another catch FarmVille will insist that you give them permission to contact you via email. So if they have your mail ID and you have a minimum of five neighbors then while you are tending your farm this message will pop up.







When you click "Ask For Help" you must choose a minimum of 5 neighbors and a up to a maximum of 15. 


If the friends you are asking for help have not given FarmVille their email IDs. The Following message will pop up.





This is a three day challenge and your friends need to respond really fast. To be of any use to you they should have also signed up with FarmVille to receive notifications via email. 


Once you have started wrangling your wild mustang you can check your progress at any time by hovering your mouse over the wold mustang icon. 





Once you have received enough responses the next time you login to FarmVille you will get this pop-up. Remember a minimum of 5 responses are needed.





The mustang will wait for you in your gift box. Once you place the mustang on your farm you can them post a feed offering a foal to 5 neighbors within 24 hours. 


If you have been unable to find five neighbors then you can still purchase the mustang for 20 farm cash. If you have let's say 2 neighbors who offered help then it would be 20 farm cash minus 2 and so on.


If you do not want to go through this whole process and would like simply to purchase the wold mustang for 20 farm cash. You would need to click on the " Buy Help" button.

Treasure Isle what the game is about


Studio head Jeremy Verba reveals the mysteries of Treasure Isle




Loading_pirateOn April 1, Zynga released its newest game, Treasure Isle. The online game, in which players sail to different islands to dig for treasure chests filled with rare artifacts and jewels, is gaining buzz as an addictive addition to Zynga's other top game FarmVille,Cafe World, and Mafia Wars.


Treasure Isle combines some of the best gaming elements of Zynga's most successful hits. Players can harvest plants and trees and decorate their own islands similar to the way players do in FarmVille. And like Mafia WarsTreasure Isle players must fill their energy levels to perform missions such as searching for treasure with friends.


Treasure's general manager Jeremy Verba sat down with us to discuss the evolution of social gaming, Indiana Jones, and why digging is fun.

Q: What exactly is Treasure Isle

JV: The game is about traveling the world to find buried treasure. For some, the exploration will be the most appealing, and for others, it's a relaxing escape. Have you heard the tropical steel drum music that accompanies game play? I wish I were on my island right now.

Q: Why would someone want to do that?

JV: Digging is fun. Currently, you get to use picks, shovels, and machetes to look for treasures and build collections of jewels and artifacts. The sounds of digging are very visceral and are different depending on which tool you use. When you find a treasure box, your avatar jumps up and you have to open the box to see what you unearthed. When you run out of energy, head back to your island retreat and rest up for your next adventure.

Q: Where does the inspiration for Treasure Isle come from?

JV: We wanted to create a sense of mystery to the game so we thought about different influences like Indiana Jones and Lost and the Swiss Family Robinson. There are elements to this game that appeal to a broad range of players like the adventurer, the billionaire hunting for rare jewels, or the vacationer who enjoys being on a deserted island.

Q: Does that mean Treasure Isle players will find mystery hatches and polar bears on their own islands? 

JV: Well, that's pretty close to Lost. There's going to be a lot of fun features coming out that highlight mystery and different genres. Users will be able to visit Atlantis, a pirate island and the Mayan ruins. You have to unlock new ways to travel to these new worlds.

Q: Sounds mysterious. How does this game compare to FarmVille

JV: Social gaming is constantly evolving. We are just entering the next inning of social gaming. WithTreasure, our goal is to weave game play elements like harvesting and decorating and energy bars together. This requires a balance of providing users with both a compelling experience and a satisfying experience. That's not an easy thing to do. But I think the social gaming industry is raising the bar in delivering both aspects.

Q: Tell us about the  team that created this game.

JV:  This is a classic example of of how Zynga operates and makes great games. A third of our team is Zynga veterans who bring institutional knowledge and the rest of our team is made up great, young entrepreneurs from a couple of acquisitions. I like to say we have the best of all worlds.

Mafia Wars Subterfuge Crates

Mafia Wars has launched brand new subterfuge crates in the Marketplace. Crates are filled with limited edition items and users will love. The pictures below show a Con Man, Fake ID and Poison filled ring. The art of subterfuge is to dodge and escape.




The Subterfuge Crates are available in the same setup as other crates in the game, and can be purchased either one at a time, or in groups of three. A single Subterfuge Crate costs 12 Reward Points, and the trio costs 35, for a savings of a single Reward Point when buying in bulk.



Either way, you have a 10% chance of receiving a Rare item from your crate, a 30% chance of finding something Uncommon and a 60% chance of finding a Common item. Some of the items you might find within are Con Men, Poison-Filled Rings, or even Fake IDs.

What did you receive inside your Subterfuge Crate? Let us know in the comments – we’d love to hear if you thought it was worth it!

PetVille Get Out of The Pound Free

PetVille has decided to show some love and give all their players a free gift. Especially for those whose Pets have been sent to the pound. All this week players can get their pet's out of the pound for free.


Good news for all those users whose Pet has run away and in the pound. Pound fees can really add up and so since you can get your pet back for free this week, you can spend you Pet Cash on things like decorations and get your Pet's house some new goods.


Zynga's way of thanking all of us is a nice gesture and helps players get everything in order before this week ends.

Active players are not going to benefit too much from this free gesture but players who have given up becasue their pet is in the pound will definately be tempted to jump back into the game.
