With the popularity and the increasing user base of the battle royale games, more and more platforms and companies are leaning towards the genre. Earlier in April, social-networking platform Snapchat announced Zynga’s Tuny Royale battle royale game which would be available on its platform exclusively. Now, a month later, Snapchat has brought the Tiny Royale battle royale game to its platform for the users. So, now, if you head to Snapchat, you will see that the game is available to play. With the addition of the new battle royale game to the application, people who enjoy playing PUBG or Fortnite may find a new reason to come to the platform.
The new game allows the users to battle with their in-game friends, and they can also collect new weapons, much like other battle royale games. Other than that, the Tiny Royale also allows the players to unlock characters and health packs along with way. They can collect all this on the map which shrinks as the match progresses and it will keep on shrinking until only one player or one team is alive. The game even lets you join or make teams or squads, or you can play alone and the last standing player will win. In other words, it’s a battle royale which uses all the features of the genre and adds to a pocket-sized edition.
The Zynga-developed battle royale game is currently available on Snapchat’s in-app gaming platform Snap Games. Talking about how the game works, its similar to other battle royale games. The players will have to shoot the players of the opponent team/single and then collect the loot. They need to also save themselves and, in the end, kill everyone to become the last one standing. The players can go solo or form a squad for a quick two-minute match. At one time, a maximum of 30 players can play the game in the same map, the teams will be made of four. But instead of giving a third person or a first-person view, the Tiny Royale offers a top-down view. The players are also given custom characters to choose from.
As mentioned above, the Snap Games feature is inside the Snapchat app itself and the players won’t have to exit the app to play the game. There are also many other original and third-party games included in the Snap Games platform. This is a new way for Snapchat to bring and lure in more users to its platform. Some of the games available on the Snap Games platform includes – Bitmoji Party, PikPok’s Zombie Rescue Squad, ZeptoLab’s C.A.T.S. Drift Race, Spry Fox’s Alphabear Hustle, Game Closure’s Snake Squad to name a few.

- You can access Snap Games by tapping on the Rocket icon on the chat menu.
