Developer Yumpod Ltd has recently launched an entirely new gaming experience with a social media element, available on the App Store July 23, 2014. Players are offered a vast platform filled with unlockable games, challenges and rewards that all begin after simply building a profile.
You vs The World allows users to follow, invite and even send other players challenges. The social aspect is offered alongside traditional gaming, as players earn coins to deepen the gameplay experience and unlock five games/difficulty settings. The application offers the chance to build out an interactive network of gamers, while earning thousands of coins and followers. You vs The World is free to sign up and use, but some game items can also be purchased for faster, further progress.
With attractive graphics and kid-friendly play, You vs The World offers an attractive platform that is sure to win praise from both parents and schools. Specifically designed with education in mind, the You vs The World School program is highly customizable, allowing teachers to determine which students need the most attention, monitor progress, and gather statistics. Parents will love it, as the platform encourages positive choices and features lovable characters and the ability to learn through gaming.
After creating a username, players build out their profiles and then immediately begin developing a network of interconnected gaming enthusiasts. You vs The World encourages friendly competition and interaction by allowing users to earn points with challenges. The app sends notifications regarding friend activity and point rewards. Players can even share statuses on Facebook and Twitter for bragging rights about how they measure up against the world.
"You vs The World allows people to organically develop their own gaming communities," said Aaron Gibson, Director of Yumpod Ltd. "Since its inception, online gaming of any sort has brought people together, but somehow has failed to adequately evolve alongside the trends of the social media culture. Gaming is a sport in its own right and players want to share their triumphs and interact. Our new game gives them that capability."
The application is also working on a few more additions that will optimize user experience. Soon, users will be able to include photos and screenshots when uploading statuses. Perhaps more exciting, players are projected to be rewarded for their skills as You vs The World plans to allow users to redeem coins for real money, prizes and awards through its app store in the future. In addition to these features, this app is also compatible with all Android devices.
