King.com, the company behind the famous Candy Crush game on mobile, has now released a new game for Android and iOS users. Shuffle Cats is a live multiplayer card game that allows you to play rummy real-time with other players across regions.
Shuffle Cats brings the traditional card game rummy on smartphones. It allows players from across borders to play with each other (this means that the app will use data), and compete in the game of cards.
As the name suggests, the characters in the game are all inspired by the feline species, with names like 'Montie' to boast. Just like rummy, you've got to meld pairs or runs to win the game, and earn points to level up. Each player is rewarded with 1000 gems at first, and to go up each level, a player has to give up a stack of his gem treasure. Whichever player wins, takes the gems along with them, while the other loses his stack. Just like all games, as you level up, the game keeps getting harder and more competitive.
Each player also has a set of Lucky Charms that he can use to boost his chances against an opponent while playing a crucial game. Users can even interact with players using the live chat option inside the game.
Apart from this new Shuffle Cats game, the Candy Crush creator is also reportedly working on a mobile shooter game, and was even looking for employing people for the same.
