Pengpeng is a social gaming app that takes advantage of the mobile messaging trend. Its design is similar to that of a mobile messaging app that allows for chatting/group-chatting, and adding contacts from your phone’s address book or Chinese social networks (WeChat, QQ IM/Q-zone and Weibo), or add strangers by shaking your phone or searching for users nearby. The iOS version also includes a social sharing feature, like WeChat’s Moment.

Any user in a chat session can initiate a game and invite the other user/other group members to join in. There are also choices of stand-alone games. All the games are Web-based that users don’t need to download them.

Currently four categories of small games are available, social games, puzzle games, skill games and sports games. The game results can be shared onto the aforementioned social networks.
