Within 36 hours of announcing the new location of Italy, Mafia Wars has added an Atlantic City challenge - for mobile phones only.
Some nice Loot pieces... and a clever joke in requiring players to be at Level 18 or over, presumably as a reference to New Jersey's legal gambling age (except that you must be 21 to go into a casino in Atlantic City).
A **very** nice weapon and vehicle as rewards...
Mafia Wars tried the mobile phone tie in previously with Achievements for doing jobs and fighting by pressing 'J' or 'F' as a text message each day... the results (for me) were spotty.
If the Atlantic City challenge - which is featured for iPhones and Droids - doesn't work on a Blackberry Curve 9930, then I'll be looking to our readers for feedback on the new locale. Good luck!
P.S. - When I accessed the advertised site on both my Blackberry and iPod Touch, I got something similar to the graphics above, with the message, "Mafia Wars for mobile web is currently in beta testing. Come back soon." Then there is a button to click to go to the Mafia Wars mobile site. Make sure to bring your Hubble Telescope if you expect to play Mafia Wars on an iPhone, iPod Touch, Droid, or Blackberry...
