We warned you in October that you better get ready to start stealing and now the time has come to start choosing your friends wisely. Today we are excited to announce the launch of Mafia Wars Shakedown for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. This is the next game in Zynga’s mafia crime genre where you can become the ‘next Don’ – gathering weapons, battling bosses, and working your way up in the Mafia. Building on the success of the Mafia Wars franchise, including the recent launch of Mafia Wars 2 as well as Mafia Wars: Chicago, Mafia Wars Shakedown is a free game for players to download and prove their “street cred” on the go. Mafia Wars Shakedown combines classic mafia style play and challenges players to steal collection pieces from friends and strangers in order to earn powerful items and defeat bosses. Level-up from chump to Don and be sure to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Strategically choose the best allies to forge into battle against a cast of mob bosses that attempt to hold onto their crime empire. Mafia Wars Shakedown is available to download for free today from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch at http://zyn.ga/DDM – see you on your turf and be sure to watch your back, chump!
