Share the Gift of Super Sneakers in Diner Dash 5 Via Facebook Connect

Casual, Facebook, Social

Diner Dash 5: Boom is the latest in an ever-increasing number of games that offers Facebook Connect integration.

The game, which launched yesterday, is a standard take on the time management genre which its predecessors made famous, but where things become interesting is in the additions and tweaks found when using said Facebook integration.

Most noteworthy is the ability for players to send other connected users Super Sneakers to be used in game. Super Sneakers, as the name suggests, allows the game’s main character Flo to navigate the complex diner spaces faster than she could on her own; and with a game where each second counts, especially in later levels where there are a constant stream of customers in and out of your restaurant, the added speed granted by the Super Sneakers is nothing to scoff at.

Unlike other installments in the franchise, however, the Super Sneakers are location specific, meaning that when you move on to a new locale, you’ll need your friends to send you another pair, or otherwise lose out on your speed bonus.

The rest of the Facebook connectivity concerns the basic elements you would expect to see in such a game: the ability to post your high scores and earned trophies to your news feed, along with captured screenshots of your diners.

Diner Dash was already a dangerously additive formula – now that I can show my accomplishments off to my friends, I dare say it has become even more so.
