Mafia Wars Logo

The social Networks have transitioned from a place to just leave messages to a place to play games and make money for developers. No one arguably has done a better job at this than the makers of Mafia Wars. This game is as addictive as cupcakes to 6 year olds at a party. It is the top game on Facebook as well as MySpace. With its ability to buy more tools to help you in the game at the cost of real money or your time with trails and surveys it is also very profitable to the developer. Now there is a new kid on the block that intends to change that with the help of another new kid in the park. Twitter is the place to see and be seen in this day and age of social networking. There have been attempts at games for it before but none has been as addictive as Spymaster. At first glance it seems like a carbon copy of Mafia Wars with a different title but you would be wrong. It takes more than just random “jobs” to reach new level. Although it is easy to get people to follow you on Twitter, it should be interesting to see who followers view the tweets that the game produces. I think some will view it as spam but others will be tempted to join the fun.
