Yookos, a new social network billing itself as “Africa-specific”, announced today (10 April 2012) that it has launched games on its platform.

The Yookos Games Portal features more than 500 games, the social network said in a press statement, all of which can be played for free.

Benjamin Onuoha, the Yookus “gaming guru”, said that he expects the most popular games to be the driving games which include: Moon Rider, Street Grand Prix and Freeway Cruising.

Games Portal also has a number of action games such as F18 Hornet Game and Air Adventure, as well as games in the 3-in-a-row category like Recycled, Super Zen Blaster, and the well-known Bejewelled.

Players can speed their progress through the games by either buying or earning Yookoins, but they’re not a prerequisite for playing, Yookos said.
