Taiwanese smartphone maker ASUS has created an online game for its ZenFone Zoom smartphone which allows participants to search for a mysterious character using the devices’ incredible 12X-magnification capability. Claimed to be “the world’s thinnest 3X optical-zoom smartphone”, ZenFone Zoom is priced in India on Flipkart and at ASUS exclusive stores at Rs 37,999.
“Zoom to Wanda” game is based on a character named Wanda who, armed with an adventurous spirit, insatiable curiosity, is travelling the world and sharing her exotic travelling and dining experiences on her blog, the company said in a statement.
The game turns participants into investigative journalists tasked with following critical clues to chase down Wanda as she wanders through the most charming streets and indulges in the world’s best food.
Tracking her down is a visually engaging experience, involving audiences zooming in on countries, cities and impressive monuments to uncover her trail, according to the company.
ASUS has used gigapixel-photo technology to create the Zoom to Wanda experience, immersing participants in incredible experiences in India, Italy, Japan and other countries.
