Following the successful mark and positive reception of the game-changing ZenFone Zoom early this year, ASUS Philippines is now all set to officially launch today, March 21, the epic online game ZOOM TO WANDA , which makes use of the ZenFone Zoom’s unmatched 3x optical zoom feature as the game’s inspiration.
ZOOM TO WANDA is an intriguing interactive hunt that invites participants to travel and explore the world in full detail as they play an investigative journalist in search of a mysterious character named “Wanda” – a fictional blogger. Participants will have to search for various clues by zooming in on distant objects and small elements during gameplay, in order to follow the footsteps and ultimately, find out the whereabouts of this Wanda.
“In celebration of the ZenFone Zoom and its undeniable mark in this smartphone photography era, we are now inviting users to experience the ZenFone Zoom in an even more fun and unique way via “Zoom to Wanda”. This enthralling online game also puts a twist on user experience giving participants the option to have their personal images become inserted into Wanda’s World during actual game play, which would be visible to their network of friends. And of course, players can expect that their experience with ZOOM TO WANDA will likewise be displayed in stunning, crisp details, much like how their actual experience with the ZenFone Zoom will be.shares ASUS Philippines Marketing Manager Jamie Zaldivar.
