City King transforms your local hot spots into battlegrounds by creating a game map based on your actual geographic location.

iPhone users are used to checking into places, TV shows, books and movies with applications like Foursquare, Facebook and GetGlue with the chance to earn stickers, badges or becoming a mayor – but none let users duel to the death to become King like social gaming iPhone app City King.

City King transforms your local hot spots into battlegrounds by creating a game map based on your actual geographic location. Players check in to nearby locations using their iPhone’s location-based services to do battle with in-game monsters and compete against other local players for the highest score to earn the title of King. Users can also enlist the help of their friends by adding up to two friends as Sidekicks in a multi-player mode in battle using Facebook Connect. They can also purchase virtual goods to equip their avatar with weapons, potions and tools to aid their quest in ruling their land.

Los Angeles based mobile app creator, Funton Games, developed this game as part of their mission to transform everyday real life into a digital playground that can connect people around the globe through play.

“We wanted to create a game that would use the players actual surroundings to create an engaging fantasy world where they could compete with friends, neighbors and locals in an engaging and fun format and so City King was born”, says Stella Ju, VP of Marketing for Funton Games.

Funton enlisted the help of an award winning designer from Italy to create the fun and colorful world of City King including the major manga inspired characters Blade Master and Demon Huntress. In addition, they worked with Gravity Music, best known for their work with top mobile games Battle Heart and OMG! Pirates, on the games soundtrack.

To celebrate their recent launch, Funton Games is offering City King for free for a limited time only. The app can be downloaded from the App Store. For more information, please visit http://www.funtongames.com or follow them on Twitter @FuntonGames.
