Friendster’s games are free-to-play and for a more enhanced experience, Friendster’s in-game credits – Friendster Coins can be purchased to unlock more game features. The new platform also allows Facebook users to enjoy Friendster easily via the Facebook Connect button.

Therefore, it is just a click away to have more fun with their irresistible online-games like Boomz. I tried it once and it is really challenging. If you like GunBound you will definitely like this game. Aim for the best spot!

Friendster presently has 56 massively multi-player online and social games on the platform and allows developers to monetize their game using Friendster Coins which is powered by MOL’s payment platform.Friendster Coins guarantees zero chargeback to its developers thus eliminating risk of fraud for developers.

“Besides global partners, we also want to help as many local developers promote their locally developed games on our platform. Friendster provides a valuable platform for Malaysian startups to reach a global audience while allowing the start-ups to monetise their content,” he concluded.
