Game developer Zynga debuted its Tiny Royale battle royale title exclusively on Snapchat’s recently introduced Snap Games real-time multiplayer gaming platform.

Snapchatters can begin playing Snap Games directly via the chat interface on their applications, while the platform presents monetization opportunities for both developers and Snapchat itself, although there are no in-app purchases in its games.

Zynga described Tiny Royale as “a top-down multiplayer shooter,” saying that players can choose custom characters and either team up with friends or compete by themselves in two-minute rounds.

Up to 30 players can battle simultaneously, forming squads of up to four friends, and the further players get, the more characters are unlocked, and the more weapons and health packs can be collected.

Zynga added that it will debut a ranked matchmaking feature this summer, Tiny Royale Leagues, which will place players in groups of 100 people broken out into 20 tiers. The developer said players will battle to climb tier ranks over limited time windows and earn trophies and rewards.

Head of Snap Games Will Wu said in a release, “Snap Games is all about exploring new ways for friends to play together, and Tiny Royale is the perfect example of that. We jumped at the chance to have a global leader in mobile games like Zynga develop for our platform, and we can’t wait to see what our community thinks about this new way to connect with each other.”

Zynga president of publishing Bernard Kim added, “We are thrilled to be one of the first companies to launch a gaming experience on Snapchat. Game developers rarely get the opportunity to create an entirely new experience on an emerging platform, so our team was excited to remix the battle royale genre into a fast-paced game designed to rock on Snap Games.”
