Diner Dash 5: Boom goes social with Facebook Connect
Diner Dash -- the game that showed the world that the words 'time management' can be fun -- is going social. Diner Dash 5: BOOM, which launches on February 18 (today!), will be the first in the series to include Facebook Connect integration.
What does that mean exactly? Players will be able to gift SuperSneakers to other friends connected via Facebook. These special shoes will give Flo the fast feet she needs to do her job faster, which will keep customers happy and money flowing into the till. There's a catch though -- there are different sneakers for different areas in the game, so you'll need more than one pair to continue to get the speed bonus.
Players will also be able to show off high scores and trophies earned in the game -- as well as images of their customized diners -- on their Facebook wall, you know, for bragging rights. The game won't support any additional microtransactions at launch, but we'll be interested to see if we can help out Flo with some super-powered clean-up skills -- or maybe even someone to lend this hard-working waitress a hand.
