If you have a Facebook account or a Myspace page, chances are you have heard of a company called Zynga. Zynga is an American based company located in California. They have the widest variety of games available for play on social network sites. Not everyone will like every game made, but some of Zynga’s games are just plain horrible. Here are five of Zynga’s worst games.
This game is one of the newer Zynga games released. The object of the game is to dig up the islands and find buried treasure. In other words, it is most like a seeking game. In order to be able to dig, you have to have energy. With each square you click on to dig, you will lose either 5, 8, or 10 percent of your energy. Your energy does refill itself after 5 hours but along the way while digging you will also be able to find fruit to use as energy. You have to collect treasure lots and you receive coins for each completed lot. There is a spot for a wishlist, where you can post items you need to complete the lots of treasure. As you move from island to island, you will find that you need more and more items to be able to complete the tasks. You need to collect jewels from your friends and your home island to be able to break barriers. Zynga offers extra islands if you have “cash” to purchase them. You can earn cash in digging on the islands or you can purchase cash (which is what they want of course). Basically this game is just a time passer, nothing more. With all of the collecting of gems, items, and energy, you are tired before you even actually begin the game.
This game is widely popular amongst people of all ages. In this game, you have to collect items, attack other mafias, and do jobs to earn money. You gain levels and clout in this game. You can call on your mafia family to attack others who have attacked you. You have energy levels in this game as well, which are compromised when you are attacked. Players of this game take this very seriously and often have a ton of mafia crew members. You can also trade items with other players to match complete sets to gain levels, points, and money. The game itself does not have an end goal and can pretty much go on forever. It seems repetitive and much like a waste of time to have to end goal.
This game is the epitome of nonsense. In this game you are a chef and run a restaurant. You are able to decorate your place, cook your food, and feed your customers. You have neighbors much the same like in Treasure Island. Exchanging things back and forth with your neighbors gives you extra things you need to cook and decorate. The plot line of this game is pretty simple. You cook your food and serve it to your customers. You try to level up to unlock more food options and decorations. Ultimately you want a thumbs up from each customer after they eat. It is pretty monotonous and boring. Again, this game as no real end goal.
This game is all about decorating the homes you purchase, accessorizing your looks, and collecting items that are released on a limited basis. You earn coins by clocking in to “work” and your energy refills every five hours (like in Treasure Island). Zynga offers free gifts to send amongst neighbors which can also yield extra coins. There are stores in which to shop at including a furniture store, clothing store, and pet store. This game is full of glitches and often has down time for “maintenance”. Ultimately this game is more about buying and selling items and getting rich. If you don’t put real money into the game, you will not find any enjoyment in it. Most things are now yocash, which is only purchased by using real currency. This game is repetitive and also has no real end goal.
This is the newest game released by Zynga and it is one that is still full of glitches. The object of the game is to build your homestead. There are steps in building this homestead and each step requires gifts to be sent from your neighbors. If you don’t have enough friends that play, you will be stuck on building and will not be able to advance any further. Again, this is a game with no end goal. There is not much else to add for this game as it is still fairly new. Most likely Zynga will add different additions to the game as they have done with the above mentioned game. It won’t make much of a difference for this game though, especially without having enough neighbors to send the supplies you need.
