New hybrid social networking game arrives on iPhone

MyTown, a social networking tool and city building game which has gained popularity in the US, has just received its international release via the iPhone App Store.

Nearly three million users log on to play the game Stateside and now iPhone users in Britain will be able to get in on the action which encourages players to build towns and cities using real life landmarks and location-based data.

MyTown has been described as a cross between SimCity and Foursquare, with users earning in-game points by renting out virtual properties and gaining new powers and abilities as they go along.

Like similarly addictive casual game Farmville, MyTown thrives because of its Facebook association and you can use real cash to splash out on upgrades and quirky additions to make your town a little more interesting.

MyTown is free to download from the App Store, but keen players will help to bring in revenue for the developer by buying in-game items which are charged at a small cost.
