WeChat Offering Free Coins in Its Gunz Dash Game in Exchange for Facebook Likes

Even though the Chinese New Year celebrations have drawn to a close in Singapore, there’s still a way for users to partake and celebrate the Year of the Horse on their smartphones courtesy of WeChat.

WeChat is giving out free in-game coins to all users on Gunz Dash in exchange for ‘Likes’ on the WeChat gaming platform’s Facebook page. The idea is to help the platform hit 30,000 likes by February 22. Once this goal has been reached, WeChatters can simply log in to Gunz Dash between 24 and 28 February to rake in a fortune of 30,000 coins.

30,000 Facebook Likes will get users free coins in WeChat

Gunz Dash is a 2D side-scrolling platformer that lets you choose your favorite hero and embark on exciting adventures in a fantasy universe. The object of the game is to collect coins for a high score and save the Princess Angela from an evil vampire king. Using slide and jump buttons on the sides of your screen, you endlessly run your avatar through a variety of courses and win by collecting the most coins and becoming a “Master Runner.”

As you gain more coins, you’ll be able to transform into Nikita, the gliding expert, or Kattie, the sprightly double jumper for additional abilities. You can also choose a skill-boosting vehicle like a scooter, Apollo, motorcycle or ice wolf and adopt a pet with special sidekick abilities.

When you start, you’re given 3,500 free coins and 50 free diamonds, which you use to buy characters, pets and vehicles that help you collect more coins and run farther. During the course of the game, you’ll have to contend with surfboards, shark teeth and torpedo missiles rushing at you, and you’ll need the help of some secret weapons to make it through.

Of course, what better way to share your high score and brag to your friends than utilizing WeChat’s built-in Moments feature?

Gunz Dash can be downloaded for free via Google Play or iTunes.
