Previously known internally as "Project Cognac," Snapchat's in-app gaming platform is now live as "Snap Games." The six launch titles are Bitmoji Party, Tiny Royale, Snake Squad, C.A.T.S. Drift Race, Zombie Rescue Squad, and Alphabear Hustle. There is no install required, as all these titles can be launched from the Chat bar.

Eight years since its arrival on the tech landscape, Snapchat is introducing in-app mobile games "made for friends" that can be launched directly from the Chat bar. Snap Games is nothing more than the market-ready mobile gaming platform that was internally called "Project Cognac" and, just as expected, it was unleashed at the first summit for content and developer partners held by the company on April 4 in Los Angeles.

Without further ado, these are the six launch titles that any Snapchat user can already play with his/her friends:

  • Bitmoji Party
  • Tiny Royale (battle royale action from Zynga) 
  • Snake Squad (by Game Closure, "you and your squad work together to be the last ones standing")
  • C.A.T.S. Drift Race (racing game by ZeptoLab)
  • Zombie Rescue Squad (from PikPok, the player and his squad get to rescue survivors in a zombie-infested city)
  • Alphabear Hustle (form words quickly to build your village, by SpryFox)

Since Snap Games is a part of the Snapchat app, there is no surprise that interactions like text and voice chat are also available. Nothing out of this world, but definitely a step ahead for Snapchat. Do you like Snap Games or not? Don't be shy and let us know what you think in the comments section, as usual.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
