As of now, there’s not an official name for this app, but it seems to be quite the little bundle of software. It’s essentially a Flash-based minigames app by ThumbPark, with heavy social integration. This ranges from gifts to leaderboards, a ranking system, additional chat, and even profile-based messaging. What really stands out here is the addition of credits, which are basically micropurchase based tokens that can be wagered on a game. For example, you play against a friend or random opponent, and you each bet 30 cents (keep in mind this is virtual currency) on the game. The winner not only gets the tokens, but the points and rank increases that come with a win.
Now, ThumbPark is looking for beta testers for this app. It’s mostly completed, but they need your help to find bugs and issues, and also feedback. They want to know what you like, what you don’t like, what you think is missing in the app, so they can improve it more before it comes to the Market. They’re giving all beta testers $10 worth of credits to play, and any additional credits you earn while playing can be cashed in at the end of the beta period, as a “thank you” for your help.
We're giving stuff away to help celebrate our tenth anniversary. Are you in?
But wait, there’s more! As an additional thanks for your beta testing, the ThumbPark will be giving one lucky tester a brand new Galaxy Tab 10.1. Interested yet?
This beta is only open for a limited time, so head on over to the sign-up page and get to gaming!
Thanks to Myko for the tip!
