Adobe Powers CityVille 2 with Flash, Flare3D and Hardware Acceleration

Zynga launched its third game using Flash Player 11 with Stage 3D hardware acceleration for enhanced graphics and gameplay. CityVille 2 allows players to toggle between different camera views, rotate buildings and see their city in ways they never imagined. Players can also flip a switch to make it nighttime, or daytime – a first for the company – giving players a whole new way to view everything from gyms to restaurants. The enhanced graphics put players in the driver’s seat for realistic and unexpected events that happen in any real city. Customizable districts and a new cast of characters add to the overall enhancements of the game.

CityVille 2 was built using the Flare3D engine optimized for Stage 3D, and is available today on Facebook. We’ve highlighted a ton of other exciting games powered by Adobe Gaming technologies in our showcase at gaming.adobe.com.
