Mr. Runner 2: The Masks Harvested the Best Mobile Game Title at Casual Connect 2014
San Francisco, CA – July 28, 2014 – Standing out above the dozens of extraordinary Indie games submitted for the contest, Mr. Runner 2: The Masks has won the Best Mobile Game title at Casual Connect 2014’s Indie Prize Awards. Mr. Runner 2: The Masks is a sequel to the wildly popular Mr. Runner and Mr. Runner Plus games. A side-scrolling auto-running platformer, it took the typical auto-runner gameplay to a whole new level with stunning animated graphics, uniquely designed levels and bosses, and a marvelously fun cosplay/mask morphing mechanism mocking various pop cultural icons.
Since its first inception in 2010, the Mr. Runner game series has proven to be a multimillion downloaded hit on the App Store and critically acclaimed. Zing Games, the independent game developer behind the hit franchise, was founded by a two brother team Ding Ye and Zhan Ye to create original games on emerging platforms. The Ye brothers have extensive industry experience working in both high-profile AAA games and original indie titles. Their work has won many industry awards, including:
- Mr. Runner was the #1 free game on the App Store in multiple countries

- Mr. Runner 2: The Masks won Golden Pass award at Global Game Stars Competition during Game Developers Conference 2013

Lose Your Mind, Your Identity in a Whimsical Dream World for the iOS:
Mr. Runner 2: The Masks
Chicago -- April 24, 2013 – Mr. Runner 2: The Masks, a new game for iOS devices from Zing Games, thrusts players into the comical, unpredictably world of their own dreaming minds. The continuous running platformer challenges players’ reflexes as they have fun racing across a dreamscape littered with video game and pop culture references in pursuit of a mysterious figure that holds the key to their identity.
The main character in Mr. Runner 2: The Masks awakens to find his face, locked away behind a steel mask. Unable to remember who he is, the character must pursue an enigmatic figure through a weird and wonderful dream world populated by figments of his subconscious.
Each time the player escapes death, fragments from his memory surface and a new “face” appears on his mask but then fades away. Unfortunately, all his brain pulls up are images of everything from classic video game characters to super heroes.
Zing Games created Mr. Runner 2: The Masks as a love letter to the gamer generation.
"Everyone's had a dream in which who they are and what is going on keeps randomly changing," Ding Ye, Founder and Creative Director, Zing Games, explains. "We wanted to bring that crazy dream world logic to Mr. Runner 2: The Masks. This game not only has the frantic excitement of a continuous running platformer, but players should have a blast spotting icons from video games, movies and television they loved as children."
In Mr. Runner 2: The Masks players must constantly keep moving forward. Obstacles can only be avoided by slowing down or speeding. This minimalist design makes the game easy to learn but players abilities will be pushed to the limit as hazards come fast and furious in later levels.

App Icon Quiz is available on the App Store now!
Chicago, IL - Zing Games, an independent mobile game developer, is proud to announce the release of App Icon Quiz on the App Store. App Icon Quiz is a truly unique app – it is a game, an icon design testing tool, and an app promotion platform.
The game concept is simple yet innovative – the player looks at an app icon image and guesses what the app is about. While the game is being played, user behavior data is collected on the backend and shared with game developers to help them find out how their icon design is liked and understood. Developers can user test and A/B test their app icons on hundreds of real users by submitting their icons to the app. As more and more gamers play the game and see the app icons, traffic will be directed to the app info page and installs will be generated from the game naturally. It is gamification of icon design testing and app promotion.
Zing Games is an independent video game developer based in Chicago, Illinois. It was established in 2011 by industry veterans Ding Ye and Zhan Ye to create original games on emerging platforms.
Zing Games’ team has developed and published several successful iOS games. Mr. Runner, a side scrolling action platformer, has achieved over 5 million downloads worldwide and was No.1 free game in many countries.
