Freeze Tag News: Garfield GO Update, Kitty Pawp Feature And MHQ Bash
TUSTIN, CA, September 20, 2017 – Freeze Tag (OTC: FRZT), a leading creator of mobile social games, today announced three important developments, including an update featuring new mini-game content in Garfield™ GO, a free-to-play, augmented reality treasure hunting game that is now available for download in the Apple iOS App Store and Google Play App Store.
“Our players have asked for more mini-games and we are answering the call,” said Craig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag. “We’re thrilled to introduce a new way to play three different carnival style games to earn coins and valuable food items.”
Garfield GO players can now enjoy three mini-games inside each carnival tent: DONUT TOSS, PICK A SQUARE, and GARFIELD SAYS. On the real world map, “Bistros” have been replaced with “Carnival Tents” to signify a stopping place for carnival fun. In addition, a new SPINNER is available for players to receive free goodies each day.
Another game featuring Garfield has received special attention from Apple. Kitty Pawp, a bubble shooter mobile game was chosen to be part of a special featured section in the new iOS 11 called “Pop the Bubbles!” Eight popular bubble shooter games, including Kitty Pawp were chosen by the Apple editorial team as examples of some of the best bubble poppers available on the App Store. Apple always highlights products of a certain quality, and Kitty Pawp has an average rating of 4.7 on the new iOS 11 store. Download and play Kitty Pawp at http://kittypawp.com.
In corporate news, the Freeze Tag team is traveling to McKinney, Texas this week to be part of the MHQ Bash, which is the three-day annual event that brings Munzee players to Munzee Head Quarters (MHQ) from all around the world. Special events will highlight Munzee (https://www.playmunzee.com/) and other Munzee games including the WallaBash event featuring Wallabee (https://www.wallabeegame.com/), and a Scavenger Hunt featuring Eventzee (https://www.eventzeeapp.com/). As previously announced, Freeze Tag and Munzee have signed a merger agreement and are working towards closing the transaction.
WHAT IS AUGMENTED REALITY OR AR?
Augmented reality is a new technology that allows for you to experience parts of the game in the real world! While playing Garfield GO, you can use your phone’s camera to look around and find Garfield pointing to a chest on the sidewalk or in a park. You could find him standing on your desk, sitting on a friend’s lap or even hanging out next to one of your pets! You’ll never know where Garfield will turn up next!
