Posted on 2016-10-27 by Sean Williamson
GSN Games is a division of Game Show Network, the major American digital cable and satellite television channel owned by Sony Pictures Television and AT&T Entertainment Group. GSN Games has recently made headlines with its real money gaming app, which has been titled Sparcade.
The Sparcade app has been launched on the Apple iOS App Store, and is now available for mobile players in both Canada and the USA. This follows a successful Beta trial, which was completed earlier this year in June.
The app offers both free to play and real money games from various popular arcade-style franchises. The current available titles include Pac-Man, Tetris, Scrabble and Wheel of Fortune, all of which are some of history’s most renowned board and arcade games to date.
One-On-One and Community Gaming Features
Players who download the new mobile app can compete as part of a social community or opt for one-on-one play with friends. The community option offers Token matches to help players hone their skills, and real money matches beginning at $1 are also featured.
Players in these matches will be competing against other players with a similar level of skill, and will be provided with equal time limits, turns and game boards. Those who play at the new app can also climb ranks, accomplish pre-set goals and even earn achievements as they play towards the title of ‘Sparcade Legend’.
More Mobile Games In The Works For GSN Gaming’s New App
Senior Vice President at GSN Games, General Manager of Sparcade and the creator of Microsoft’s Xbox Live Arcade, Greg Canessa, feels positively about the newly released mobile gaming platform. Canessa has said that several factors have made it the perfect time for GSN Games to introduce Sparcade, including the fact that casual games are highly popular, that players’ enthusiasm around eSports is exceptionally high and that competitive multiplayer gaming on mobile is rapidly taking shape.
Canessa also said that GSN Games is confident that their players will enjoy playing competitive free and real money games with the app, which offers some of the most notable game franchises of all time optimised for mobile play. According to him, his company is excited for its mobile players to experience all that the app has to offer, including its rich social and community features and the additional games that the developer currently has in the works.
As well as the several popular games already featured in the app, Sparcade is expected to launch several new franchise games and innovative features in coming months.
