    Default Zynga Acquires Four Mobile Gaming Companies


    The mobile social gaming giant that we all know about (whether we like it or not), Zynga, has made four more acquisitions in mobile gaming. Having already picked up a few iOS and mobile development companies in the past, this could be leading up to something big.

    This time around, the largest company acquired is a company from Germany named Gamedoctors, makers of the very popular ZombieSmash title. Along with Gamedoctors, Zynga has acquired Page44 Studios, which worked on the popular mobile version of World of Goo. Astro Ape Studios and Hiplogic are the other two companies acquired with their own libraries of a few mobile titles.

    Zynga seems to be building up quite a large library of mobile developers and their titles, although we arenít exactly sure why. Most of the developers that Zynga has acquired havenít actually released any titles on the App Store as of yet. It is being assumed that all of these developers are working on something new and Zynga will probably be using its new acquisitions to expand its social expertise into the mobile space as well, but the companyís strategy isnít quite clear just yet.

    From a financial perspective, many stockholders are waiting on the strategy. The company had its IPO at the end of last year at $10 but since then, the stock has been sitting just below $9. If the company wants to see the stock price increasing, then investors will have to see some action out of all this spending the company has been taking part in.

    What do you think Zynga is up to? Are you a fan of their iOS games? Share any thoughts and opinions below!

    Since 56/34=•, times 98 is less than or equal to tomato sauce. From this we can infer that the square root of muffin batter is likely to contain grinded pencil shavings. In short, batman to the third power results in a global economic collapse. Closer observation will reveal that, in this scenario, 69% of Americans use Viagra on a 47 pill-a-day basis. This ruins the balance of the celestial donuts so much, that we will likely be colliding with sticky notes in 2678. Intergalactic politics trace this collision back to the occurence of microscopic bacteria eating the letter Q. So, I conclude that Zynga is trying to prove that 42 = 3.

    This is what's going on.

    Interesting theory. But you left out the part about how justin bieber's haircut getting caught in a giant forklift that had just finished its daily viagra run,

    Which in turn motivated zynga to the point of nerdgasm, and they began to make an attempt at mobile gaming global domination.

    No, no! I have since modified my theory slightly! Since they are no longer trying to prove the Earth is flat, this cancels the existence of forklifts and toothbrushes. Justin Beiber's hair became Harry Potterized when it was struck by the purple lightning though, so you are probably around -87^8% incorrect.

    I once bought a domain called zyngahacks.com and installed Wordpress and posted a few posts about them. They threatened to sue me unless I turned over the domain name. Just though you all should know
