Storm8 Lands on Facebook Mobile Apps With a BangBlockbuster Mobile Games World War, iMobsters and Vampires Live Available Today on Facebook Mobile Apps and Site (October 10, 2011)
REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/10/11 -- Storm8, the leading developer of social games for iPhone and Android, launched three of its most popular titles today on Facebook's mobile apps and mobile site. Players can now access World War, iMobsters and Vampires Live through the Facebook mobile app on Android, iOS and other HTML5-capable devices.

Built in HTML5, Storm8's games for Facebook mobile also work seamlessly between devices, so players can easily pause a game on an iPhone, for example, and pick it up on an Android tablet.
Because users can now log into the Storm8 games directly from the Facebook mobile apps, players can now grow their alliances, mobs and clans by inviting their Facebook friends to participate. In addition, Storm8's integration with the newly announced Facebook Open Graph Custom Actions allows a player's in-game actions and successes to be shared with their friends via the Ticker stream.
"With more than 210 million downloads, we've proven the enormous demand for our massively multiplayer mobile social games," said Perry Tam, CEO, Storm8. "Now we're bringing that same excitement to mobile users on the world's largest social network. By hooking our hottest games into Facebook, we're opening them up to a much larger audience and making it even easier for players to get friends involved.
